Quotable

"You don't want to start counting your chickens or eggs or whatever they count, but we'll worry about ourselves and let everybody else shoot themselves in the foot."

-- Keyshawn Johnson, Jets receiver, on possibility of last-place New York getting back in the AFC East race.

"I felt like my old self. I've always been able to throw the ball down the field, but the last five or six weeks, I didn't really know where it was going."

-- Brett Favre, Packers quarterback, who did not throw an interception yesterday after entering the game with two more interceptions than touchdowns.

"It has changed. The old place was like the slums. Now, it's like the Millionaire's Club." -- Eric Metcalf, current Panther and former Brown, on the state of the Dawg Pound in Cleveland.

"I definitely owed it to them. I needed that kick. The team needed that kick. I came through at the end, and was just a little piece of the puzzle today." -- Chris Boniol, Bears kicker, who kicked the game-winning field goal in overtime a week after missing a potential game-winner in overtime.

By the numbers

Records: Browns' Tim Couch surpassed Bernisince 1980, and yesterday's loss ensured the end of their string of 16 straight 10-victory seasons. Colts QB Peyton Manning left after the third quarter, ending his career-opening streak of 1,590 consecutive snaps. Green Bay won its ninth straight over Detroit at Lambeau Field.

Milestones: Ravens' Rod Woodson had his 50th career interception, joining former Lions star Lem Barney as the only NFL players with 50 interceptions, 1,000 interception return yards and at least seven TDs. Chargers LB Junior Seau lined up at TE on San Diego's first drive and caught his first NFL pass, a 2-yarder. Bears' Jim Miller, in his sixth season, won for the first time as a starter. Tampa Bay's Karl Williams became the NFL's career leader in punt return average (13.6 yards).

Ups: The Seahawks won back-to-back games against the Chiefs for the first time since a 1990 sweep. The Rams won in San Francisco for the first time since 1990 and completed their first season sweep of the 49ers in 20 years.

Downs: The Browns are 0-5 in their new, $280 million home and have been outscored 152-50.

Next week

Dolphins (8-2) at Cowboys (5-5): Jimmy Johnson may have quarterback Dan Marino back in the starting lineup on Thanksgiving when the former Cowboys coach returns to Texas Stadium, where he has won 22 of his past 25 games.

Bills (7-4) at Patriots (6-4): The loser of this AFC East contest will find itself looking up at three teams in the division.
