Extra Points

November 10, 2003

Tough Tuna

Bills quarterback Drew Bledsoe fell to 2-4 against the Cowboys' Bill Parcells, his first NFL coach.

Making their points

The Chargers scored their most points since beating the Dolphins on Dec. 27, 1993, a span of 153 games.

Turning over

The Bucs continued their streak of 50 consecutive games with a take-away.

Winning ways

The Lions have won two straight games for the first time since the 2000 season.

Clogging the run

The Titans extended their NFL-best streak to 25 home games without allowing a 100-yard rusher.

Dynamic duo

The Colts' Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison connected on their 65th touchdown, tying Jim Kelly and Andre Reed for third on the NFL's list of most prolific TD combinations.

Brownout

The Browns, who have lost seven straight road games against AFC West teams, have scored 20 or fewer points in eight of nine games this season.

Soaring to milestone

The Jets' Curtis Martin went over 11,000 yards rushing for his career, the 13th NFL player to do so.

TONIGHT'S GAME

Philadelphia (5-3) at Green Bay (4-4)

Time: 9.

TV: Chs. 2, 7.

Line: Packers by 4 1/2 .

Key stat: Eagles are 10-1 under coach Andy Reid in prime-time games.

Players to watch: Rookie LB Nick Barnett (two sacks, two interceptions) has become a key Packers defender. Eagles QB Donovan McNabb threw for a season-high 312 yards last week against the Falcons.

The buzz: With five wins in their past six games, the Eagles are one of the NFL's hottest teams. But Brett Favre entered Week 10 leading the NFL with 16 TD passes and the Packers have motivation, having cut into the Vikings' NFC North lead.
