Monday Morning Qb

Titans 25, Ravens 10

Ravens Gameday

September 19, 2005|By KEN MURRAY

CHARITY FIRST

Houston owner Bob McNair, who's got a struggling team on his hands and a beleaguered coach, contributed $2.7 million to the hurricane relief fund at halftime of a 27-7 loss to the Steelers. That's priority.

STEPPING UP

Six days after taking a helmet to the chest, Eagles QB Donovan McNabb not only played against the 49ers, but also tied his career high with five TD passes. That's leadership.

BACK IN GROOVE

Steelers WR Hines Ward had a quiet opening week after getting a lucrative contract extension, but caught two TDs in the first half at Houston. That's relief.

OWENS VS. 49ERS

Eagles WR Terrell Owens silenced his former 49ers teammates with two TD passes, logging his 34th career 100-yard game. That's too bad.

BAD VIKINGS VIBES

Coach Mike Tice is on the NFL's hottest seat after the Vikings were overwhelmed for the second straight week, this time in Cincinnati.

ROARING AGAIN

A rash of injuries took out Carolina's running game - and RB Stephen Davis - last season. Against the Patriots, Davis restored the run and rushed for three touchdowns in a 27-17 win. The Panthers' biggest weapon is back.

Kicking Off

Ravens -- Read it and weep: Only three of the past 36 teams starting 0-2 made the playoffs, none in 2004.
