BEING BILL BELICHICK: The Patriots head coach delivered another one of his marvelous press conferences on Wednesday, revealing that he hasn't been to the grocery store in a long, long time. What does he eat? DOES he eat? It's a good excuse to go back and play the Bill Belichick offseason simulator.
ATLANTA'S AIR STRUGGLES: It's hard to think that something's wrong with the Falcons offense, but Matt Ryan and the passing game have had some struggles this season. Why is that? Julio Jones is expected play on Thursday night against the Saints, so that should help.
SAINTS DEFENSE: Speaking of struggles, the Saints defense is pretty bad. So, how are they going to stop the Falcons?
EJ TIME: On Wednesday, the Bills were a little more optimistic about Tyrod Taylor playing this week, but they still signed Josh Johnson and most expect EJ Manuel to get the start against the undefeated Bengals.
BIG BEN BACK: Ben Roethlisberger made an appearance at practice with the Steelers on Wednesday, doing limited work with the team. So, how soon is he going to be back? Pittsburgh linebacker Ryan Shazier isn't quite ready to return.
INJURED LINEMEN: The Patriots lost Nate Solder for the season on Wednesday, putting him on IR. The Rams may very well be without Rodger Saffold for the rest of the season, their only lineman with more than a season of starting experience.
ST. LOUIS STADIUM: The task forced submitted a term sheet to the NFL, outlining who would pay for the proposed stadium. Most city leaders are in the dark on the details of how taxpayers will be asked to fund the project and they're not happy about it. Meanwhile, the state Speaker of the House blasted the governor and the project, vowing to block state funds unless the project gets voter or legislative approval.
WEEK 6 PICKS: Our panel picked every game this week, and we see at least one undefeated team getting its first loss.
BENGALS KNOW: The Bengals and Andy Dalton look a lot different this season -- better -- but they've heard all the criticism and know their record now means nothing.
CARDINAL RULES: Who is David Johnson and why is he scoring all of Arizona's touchdowns?
COWBOY SHUFFLE: Dallas is making a handful of lineup changes this week.
BRADY DENIAL: Tom Brady swears he isn't a robot.
SUSPENSION: The side judge who screwed up the clock in the Steelers game on Monday night has been suspended.
BEAR DOWN: Jay Cutler is the best QB the Bears have ever had and fans are glad to have him ... for now.
FANTASY CORNER: Carson Palmer looks like the best QB play this week, after Brady and Rodgers, of course. More notable is that Andrew Luck might actually be a good fantasy play this week. Get the player rankings for every position before making your final lineup decisions.
