Holdout wide receiver Vincent Jackson remains the property of the San Diego Chargers despite his agent saying he had deals in place with several teams before Wednesday's deadline. Agent Neil Schwartz said he heard from multiple general managers, whom he declined to identify, that the Chargers were asking for "wholly unreasonable" compensation for Jackson, a Pro Bowler who had two straight 1,000-yard seasons. Schwartz said another GM told him that Chargers general manager A.J. Smith seemed to be "squatting" on Jackson.

Chargers offensive tackle Marcus McNeill ended his lengthy holdout on Saturday by signing his one-year, $630,000 tender contract. McNeill, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, missed San Diego's first two regular-season games while hoping for a larger contract and will still be sidelined for the next three contests as he was placed on the team's roster exempt list. "We're all very happy that Marcus McNeill has decided to sign his tender and go back to work," Chargers general manager A.J. Smith said.

Despite regularly getting off to slow starts, the Chargers have won four consecutive AFC West titles. Is this the season that changes? By all indications, the division is tougher, especially now that Oakland has cut ties with quarterback JaMarcus Russell. Denver has blown chances to run away with the division the last two years and is looking to close the deal. The Chiefs are trying to recreate the New England model with several former Patriots fixtures, among them general manager Scott Pioli, offensive coordinator Charlie Weis and defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel.

PITTSBURGH - Seventeen seconds told the story of the Pittsburgh Steelers' 35-24 victory over the San Diego Chargers. That's precisely how long the Chargers had the ball in the decisive third quarter - just one snap of the football. "You look up at the clock and after you come off the field there's seven minutes left in the quarter, and you kind of wonder where all the time went," said Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who directed an eight-minute drive and then, thanks to an interception by the Steelers' defense, got the ball right back.

1 Brandon Marshall rips the secondary. The Ravens have struggled to contain big receivers downfield (remember Vincent Jackson, Chad Ochocinco and Sidney Rice?). And Marshall, 6 feet 4 and 230 pounds, might be better than those wide-outs. 2 Denver's pass rush closes the pocket on Joe Flacco. The Broncos are tied for second in the NFL with 21 sacks. Flacco was sacked a season-high three times last game. 3 Broncos continue second-half domination. The Ravens have done an admirable job in the fourth quarter, outscoring teams 66-39.
