ALL TIED UP

Baltimore Colts Hall of Famer Lenny Moore held on to a share of his NFL record for consecutive games scoring a touchdown when San Diego's LaDainian Tomlinson didn't get into Philadelphia's end zone. Moore set the record between 1963 and 1965 with 18 consecutive games.

ALL TIED UP, PART II

Bengals QB Carson Palmer failed to break a tie with Peyton Manning for the NFL record for most consecutive games (nine) with a 100 passer rating or better when he skidded to 53.8 in a loss to the Steelers.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHT

The Chiefs posted one of the most impressive wins of the weekend Friday night. They had to go into Miami on short notice in the face of an incoming hurricane and play hours after arriving. Then their offense roughed up the Dolphins for 462 yards and a 30-20 win.

COUNT HIS BLESSINGS

Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was fortunate his end-of-the-half mistake, when he wasted a scoring chance in the San Diego red zone, didn't come back to bite him in a three-point win. McNabb used up the last 15 seconds with a pass to L.J. Smith, who couldn't get out of bounds, and the Eagles couldn't get off a chip-shot field-goal try.

THANKS, DWIGHT

Colts defensive end Robert Mathis is benefiting from the fear pass rusher Dwight Freeney instills in opposing teams. Mathis, the NFL leader in sacks coming into Week 7, picked up his eighth of the season against the Texans.

REINS ON DILFER

The Browns adjusted their game plan considerably since letting Trent Dilfer throw 30 passes against the Ravens a week ago. Yesterday against Detroit, Dilfer threw just seven passes in the first half in building a 10-7 lead in a game the Browns ultimately lost.
