STATISTICALLY SPEAKING

For his 11 career touchdowns, Chiefs return man and wideout Dante
Hall has averaged 79.8 yards per score. That's the highest
average alltime among players who have scored at least 10
touchdowns.

STAR IN THE MAKING
Eagles rookie tight end L.J. Smith

Philly's first downfield threat at tight end since Keith Jackson
in the late '80s and early '90s had his coming-out party on
Sunday in Atlanta: six catches for 97 yards. Smith, a
second-round pick out of Rutgers, has above-average speed and
excellent hands, and the 6'3" 258-pounder can dish out
punishment.

MY TWO CENTS

1. The NFL did the right thing in awarding Phoenix the 2008 Super
Bowl. Now the league needs to go one step further and abandon the
half-baked plan of putting the following year's title game in
northern Virginia or New Jersey. The last thing we need is a
Super Bowl played in winter slush.

2. Sure, the Vikings are struggling, but they'll still win the
NFC North. Minnesota has a two-game lead over the Packers, and
its next three games are against the Chargers, Raiders and Lions,
who are a combined 5-19. --P.K.
