Week Four Recap

EXTRA POINTS

TEXAS-SIZED DISASTER

QB Kerry Collins' first start for the Raiders in place of the injured Rich Gannon couldn't have gone worse. He was responsible for five turnovers, including three interceptions, in a 30-17 loss to the Texans in Houston.

SECONDARY CONCERN

CB Nick Harper, beaten on a 40-yard TD pass to Jimmy Smith, is a big-time risk in the Colts' defensive backfield.

WINNING ROUND ONE

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger outplayed Bengals QB Carson Palmer in the first game of what could be a long rivalry.

THIRD DOWN, THIRD-RATE

The Redskins paid QB Mark Brunell $8.6 million to sign and expect better than 1-for-11 on third-down conversions.

GIANT STEPS VS. PACKERS

Forget the fumbles. Giants RB Tiki Barber had his third 100-yard rushing game of the season vs. Green Bay.

RECEIVING NOTICE WITH THE COLTS

Would WR Brandon Stokley look nice in Ravens purple now? He led the Colts with eight catches for 97 yards in their win over Jacksonville yesterday and has become a key cog in Indianapolis' high-powered offense.
