EXTRA POINTS

Moving up

Colts' Edgerrin James passed Eric Dickerson for third place on the team's all-time rushing list.

Giant mark

Tiki Barber surpassed Frank Gifford for most all-purpose yards in Giants' history with 9,880.

Bumpy road

The Lions have lost 20 straight on the road. They haven't won outside of Michigan since Dec. 17, 2000.

Sack attack

The Buccaneers have at least one sack in 67 straight games, one shy of the NFL record set by Dallas from 1976 to 1980.

Making their points

The Titans reached the 30-point mark for the fifth straight game, matching a mark the franchise set in 1961 when it was the Houston Oilers.

Hot debut

Texans' Domanick Davis is the first rookie runner since Denver's Mike Anderson in 2000 to have 100-yard games in his first two NFL starts.

Feeling at home

The Titans/Oilers are 7-3 at Jacksonville's ALLTEL Stadium since 1995.

Tempe time

Tonight will be the fourth Monday night game at Sun Devil Stadium and the first since 1999.

TONIGHT'S GAME

Miami (4-2) vs. San Diego (1-5)

Time: 9.

TV: Chs. 2, 7.

Line: Dolphins by 6.

Site: Tempe, Ariz. The game was shifted from Qualcomm Stadium because of wildfires in the San Diego area.

Players to watch: RB LaDainian Tomlinson, who has had rushing days of 200 and 187 yards this season, is averaging 5.7 yards per carry for the Chargers. Dolphins RB Ricky Williams is averaging 3.4 per carry.

The buzz: The Chargers are the kind of team that is capable of giving the Dolphins fits, but Miami has been resilient on the road this year -- 3-0, with wins over the Giants, Jets and Jaguars.
