Quotable

"I wish I could tell you I knew he would do this, but I'd be lying if I did." -- Rams coach Mike Martz on Trung Canidate's stellar start in place of Marshall Faulk

"I'm disappointed in the number of field goals, but the field goals were the difference in the ballgame. We'll take them." -- Titans coach Jeff Fisher

"The AFC West is the toughest division there is and to go on the road and stink it up like we did today is ridiculous." -- Broncos receiver Rod Smith

"When you're 1-5, you're not very good. I think we're better than that, but it doesn't matter what I think. We had a chance to play a team today that wasn't a playoff team last year and we didn't beat them. They beat us, and it was no fluke win." -- Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil

By the numbers

Milestones: Yesterday was the first time the Bengals were shut out at Paul Brown Stadium. Their three shutouts last season were all on the road. ... Troy Brown passed Russ Francis and Harold Jackson to move into sixth place on the Patriots' career yards receiving list. Ups: The Rams became the second NFL team to start three straight seasons with at least six victories. The 1929-1931 Packers had the only other such streak. ... The Bears have allowed 43 points, fewest in the NFL. ... Chargers cornerback Ryan McNeil had 10 tackles and his NFL-leading sixth interception. ... The Cardinals won for the fifth time in 26 games against AFC teams since 1995. Downs: The 10 sacks the Buccaneers allowed matched a team record. ... The Saints' Ricky Williams, who was averaging 4.5 yards a carry, gained just 51 yards on 21 carries, a 2.4-yard average. ... The Packers' loss was their most lopsided defeat in the regular season since a 36-14 loss at Dallas on Oct. 3, 1993. ... The Chiefs (1-5) are off to their worst start since opening 1-9 in 1987. ... Only 35,916 watched the Cardinals beat the Chiefs at 73,000-seat Sun Devil Stadium.

Next week

49ers (4-1) at Bears (4-1): One of the NFC's most productive offenses visits the NFL's stingiest defense. Dolphins (3-2) at Seahawks (3-2): Can Seattle win without Trent Dilfer? It looks as if Matt Hasselbeck will be well enough to start this week.
