Where do we begin?

For starters, Indianapolis is a great place where the Colts willed themselves to victory, honoring their cancer-stricken head coach Chuck Pagano. The Colts' 30-27 upset win over the Green Bay Packers is what dreams are made of—if you're an Indy fan.

Not only did they slay the giant, but the Colts did so with ageless-wonder Reggie Wayne and the QB playing beyond his years, Andrew Luck. Out west, Alex Smith of the 49ers was a huge winner as he rang up over three hundred yards passing to go along with his three touchdown passes in a 45-3 rout against the Bills.

In Kansas City, we find a big loser this week in Matt Cassel, as the Chiefs had a real chance to upset the Ravens. KC's defense held the Ravens to only nine points, but scored only six! Aside from his miserable stats (92 yards passing and one INT), the Chiefs quarterback fumbled on the goal line, costing KC with a big upset victory. Is he Superman or just a guy trying to figure out his sophomore jinx? That's what Carolina fans are asking about Cam Newton who had yet another sub-par game.
