you. The running game was inept again. The win over Denver seems light-years away right now. And New Orleans is next. Mercy please.
Philadelphia stayed on the heels of Dallas in the NFC East, and moved a game ahead in the Giants in the fight for wild-card position. The Eagles and Packers would be in the playoffs if the season ended today. Atlanta stayed in the group in hot pursuit by rallying to beat Tampa Bay 20-17. But it was a win that came at great price, as Matt Ryan got hurt. Over in the AFC, Baltimore got a badly needed win to stay a factor in a packed AFC wild-card race, when they survived Pittsburgh in overtime 20-17. Denver leads up the wild-card pack at 7-4, with several teams in pursuit for the second berth. Amazingly, one of them is Tennessee. After an 0-6 start, the Titans have won five straight and are only a game back. Yesterday's win saw Vince Young and Matt Leinhardt rematch from their epic 2005 bowl game showdown when Texas
beat USC for the national title. Sunday's game ended the same way. Young drove his team the length of the field for a touchdown in the closing moments. Young's 387 passing yards and complete transformation are as amazing as that of his team.
