A LION'S HEART

The Lions' much-maligned Joey Harrington answered his critics when he played with the flu and threw for a career-high 361 yards against Minnesota. Harrington drove 80 yards to a TD in the last 1:29 before a botched extra point foiled the Lions.

INDISPENSABLE

The revived Bills can ill afford an injury to RB Willis McGahee, who hurt his knee in Cincinnati after an awkward landing on a pass play.

THIN SKIN?

Broncos QB Jake Plummer ought to be used to home-crowd heckling with all the interceptions he has thrown in his career (140).

MESS IN S.F.

Coach Dennis Erickson should reach a settlement to leave the 49ers. Penny-pinching owner John York has made the franchise a joke.

NO BUST

Chiefs RB Larry Johnson (three straight 100-yard games) has dispelled the notion that he's another Penn State bust at the position. KEEPING IT SIMPLE

Giants coach Tom Coughlin showed rare flexibility when he reduced the offensive package for QB Eli Manning against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday, allowing him to stick with the plays he was familiar with from training camp. Smart decision.
