Considering what you have endured, how have you resisted the temptation to become frustrated with what has happened? I don't think about it like that. I don't think about football in a frustrating way at all. I just don't. I won't allow myself to let anything take away from what we've got going on here. Do you believe that contracting tonsillitis was part of a bigger plan? Everything definitely happens for a reason. Obviously, my plan will come somewhere later on down the line. The things that I have gone through and go through now are definitely part of what I have to do to become the quarterback that I want to become.

Division predictionPencil in Chicago and Tampa Bay for fourth and fifth. Then it gets difficult. You could virtually pick Minnesota, Detroit and Green Bay out of a hat because they're so close. Warren Moon's quarterbacking gives Minnesota a slight edge, and the Scott Mitchell-Barry Sanders duo should get Detroit the runner-up spot, which leaves Green Bay in third fighting for a playoff spot.1.

Everything was proceeding nicely Sunday until the final minute of the Bills-Patriots catastrophe. Washington, Houston and Denver all had covered. New England, the week's fourth major pick, didn't appear likely to do so until a miracle happened with less than a minute left.The Patriots, favored by four points, had just scored to regain the lead at 21-18, only to see Adam Vinatieri miss the extra point by a mile to the left. Wonderful!But Jim Kelly wasn't through. The Buffalo quarterback put up a pass in the right flat that defensive end Willie McGinest intercepted and returned 46 yards for a touchdown, at which point referee Dick Hantak became the most confused person in the stadium.

Maybe it's a question they should start asking on the late news: Do you know where your NFL team is tonight?For the second straight week, an NFL team announced it was moving last week when Bud Adams, owner of the Houston Oilers, signed a new deal with Nashville, Tenn.The move isn't as final as the one Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell announced in Baltimore the previous week, because Nashville fans have to buy almost 45,000 permanent seat licenses to make it official.There's another big difference: While the proposed Browns move has caused a firestorm in Cleveland and around the country, the Oilers' move was greeted almost with a yawn.
