NFL WEEK 14 Still waiting for division crown


NFL WEEK 14 Still waiting for division crown
Quotable


"You want that to be outside. You want it to be in the weather. As long as (Toronto) gets a franchise, I'd love to see it, but I wouldn't want to see the Buffalo Bills turn into the Toronto Bills."

Former Bills QB Jim Kelly on the Bills-Dolphins game today being played in Toronto's Rogers Centre, Canada's first NFL regular-season game Same old Schaub

Texans QB Matt Schaub is expected to reclaim his starting job today for the first time since tearing the medial collateral ligament in his left knee Nov. 2.

And it didn't take long for teammates to rib him about the large knee brace's impact on his mobility.

"He looks like the same old Matt - slow," RT Eric Winston said. "So, there's nothing that's going to change about Matt. But, no, he's fine. He really looks good."

Dot dot dot

The Rams have scored just 159 points and allowed 360, a point differential (201) that is 11 points worse than winless Detroit's. In their past six wins, the Ravens have outscored opponents 84-0 in the fourth quarter. Dallas QB Tony Romo has thrown for 870 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions in three games since returning from a broken right pinkie. The Steelers have won 14 of the past 18 against the NFC. The Patriots are 17-1 in games after a loss since 2003.

Super scenario

The picks of the moment for Super Bowl XLIII on Feb. 1 in Tampa:

Giants vs. Steelers

Even without WR Plaxico Burress, the Giants can remain the class of the NFC. The battle-tested Steelers have the defense to carry them in the playoffs.

Information from Times wires, Toronto Star, Dallas Morning News, San Diego Union-Tribune and Houston Chronicle was used in this report. Home not so sweet

Homefield advantage hasn't really been a factor this season, especially last week, when visiting teams won 11 of 16 games. That dropped home winning percentage in 2008 to .549, which, according to STATS, would tie the third-lowest number for an entire season during the past 20 years.

Why do some players revel in playing on the road?

"It's like going in somebody's house and taking their cake off the table and they're sitting right there looking at you and there's nothing they can do," Redskins WR Antwaan Randle El said.

Dubious

movie debut

More than 150 people showed up at a San Diego library last week to view an 82-minute documentary on former NFL QB Ryan Leaf, below, who went from a No. 2 pick and supposed Chargers savior to one of the biggest busts in NFL history and a punch line for pundits. The movie, written and directed by Jim Carr (who plays Leaf), has facts from Leaf's fall from grace, including his November resignation as a coach at West Texas for "personal reasons."

"If I was (Leaf), I'd want to crawl under a rock after watching that movie," said David Bart, a 30-year-old San Diego resident. "He really looked like an a?-?-." Believe it or not, the Cardinals can complete their impressive turnaround from perennial cellar-dwellers to champions today. With a win over the struggling Rams (2-10), Arizona (7-5) can clinch the NFC West, which would be its first division championship since 1975, the longest active title drought. The Cardinals would then pass the burden of longest streak to the Browns (15 seasons). A look at the three teams (besides the Cardinals) with the longest division drought, ranked in order of closest to ending the futility:
