(Last week's ranking in parentheses): 1. Colts (1) Defense still driving Super Bowl caravan. 2. Broncos (4) 5-1 for third time in three seasons. 3. Bengals (7) 21 take-aways through six games. 4. Chargers (8) Best player in NFL? Easy: LaDainian Tomlinson. 5. Steelers (2) Special teams look good, but Ben Roethlisberger-less offense is horrible. 6. Eagles (5) Success hinges on how quickly Donovan McNabb can get healthy. 7. Buccaneers (10) As long as Carnell Williams is out, team will limp along.

Pittsburgh Steelers PLAXICO BURRESS, WR To ensure NFL defenses don't figure out his game, wide receiver Plaxico Burress used the preseason for modifications. For Burress, the focus shifted from running and jumping to reading and cutting. "Teams are not going to let me run down the field and jump up and make plays all day long," Burress told The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I want to become a complete receiver. I don't think there's a lot out there that I can't run. If I got to go in and take a 5-yard slant and take it 20 yards, that's what I'm going to do."

The drought of receivers from the University of Florida who make it big in the NFL appears to be over. Unfortunately for the Ravens, the most prominent ex-Gators wide-out today isn't Travis Taylor, but his 1999 sidekick, Darrell Jackson. The headliners in the class of 2000 receivers were Peter Warrick (fourth pick), Plaxico Burress (eighth pick) and Taylor (10th pick). But Jackson, a third-round pick - No. 80 overall - by the Seattle Seahawks, has outdistanced them all so far. Through two seasons and two weeks, Jackson has 136 catches for 1,975 yards and 14 touchdowns.

FS Stanley Richard racked up 11 tackles, and LBs Marvcus Patton and Ken Harvey had big sacks.

The Denver Broncos have set up a guessing game with their starting quarterbacks, but the Ravens defense doesn't intend to play. Broncos coach Mike Shanahan has closed all practices and could wait until game day before revealing which of his banged-up quarterbacks -- Brian Griese or Gus Frerotte -- will be his starter for Sunday's wild-card game at PSINet Stadium. Still, Ravens defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis won't be losing any sleep over this mystery. Griese and Frerotte are basically interchangeable parts.
