Drew Brees showed some fire after getting suplexed by Captain Munnerlyn ... All the points in the Patriots-Raiders game were scored by 'Kowskis' ... Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch injured his knee celebrating a sack ... Johnny Manziel scored on a great trick play but it was called back due to a penalty ...

College Football Notes
If you missed any of this weekend's college football action, I suggest you check out Martin Rickman's Between the Hashes and Andy Staples' Punt, Pass and Pork columns. My three top items from the weekend were Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu assisting a fan with his keg stand, this Florida fan's tattoo and the heroic save of Texas A&Ms mascot, Miss Rev.

From the Vault
Scott Baio turned 54 today. In this photo, Baio poses with co-stars Patrick Swayze, Maureen McCormick (a.k.a. - Marcia Brady), Ron Palillo and Greg Bradford on the set of Skatetown U.S.A. in 1978. The movie, which capitalized on the short-lived roller disco fad, bombed at the box office but remains a bit of a cult hit. For more classic sports photos (with the occasional cheesy '70s movie thrown in), visit the SI Vault on Twitter.
