Game of the week

Patriots at Jets, 2:15 p.m.

It isn't Tom Brady vs. Brett Favre, but it's still intriguing. The Jets are suddenly the team to beat in the AFC East with Brady out with a season-ending injury. But if there's anything we've learned about the Patriots under coach Bill Belichick, it's that this team won't go away without a fight.

Team on the rise: Steelers

Last week we said the Steelers were on the decline. Oops. Pittsburgh might just be the team to beat in the AFC after a dominant showing against Houston, as well as underwhelming performances turned in by the rest of the conference contenders in Week 1.

Team on the decline: Raiders

The Raiders looked like they may be in for a historical season in their 41-14 loss to Denver on Monday night. And not the good kind of historical. The head coach and the defensive coordinator hate each other, the owner and the head coach don't get along, and the team wasted millions of dollars on low-character players in the offseason.
