CHIEF BACKUP DOES THE JOB

Priest Holmes is Kansas City's marquee back, but reserve Larry Johnson did the most damage in a 27-7 win over the Jets. Johnson rushed for 110 yards and two touchdowns, including a 35-yarder to launch the rout.

RESERVE RUSH

With their top two backs out, the Steelers entrusted the running game to Willie Parker, who gouged the Titans for 161 rushing yards.

BIG DEBUT

QB J.P. Losman gave the Bills a turnover-free debut in their win over Houston. He also passed for 170 yards and rushed for 31.

ROOKIE IMPACT

Chiefs rookie LB Derrick Johnson, who lasted until the 15th pick in the draft, had nine tackles and forced a fumble vs. the Jets.

BUCS BOOST

Carnell Williams gave the Bucs a running game in an upset at Minnesota, and 71 of his 148 rushing yards came on a clinching TD run.

JONES GETS 50 FOR THE JAGS

The Jaguars got 50 yards in four plays from WR Matt Jones, the 21st pick in the draft who went right before the Ravens took WR Mark Clayton. Jones had two catches for 22 yards and two rushes for 28.
