SOME QUICK HITS TO THINK ABOUT
-- How impressive is LaDainian Tomlinson 's 26 rushing touchdowns in 285 carries? Well, it's the same number of scores as Larry Johnson, Rudi Johnson, Tiki Barber and Tatum Bell have combined and it took this fine group of backs 1,069 carries to equal what L.T. did in 784 fewer tries!

-- Eli Manning has the same number of touchdown passes (22) as his brother, Peyton.

-- The Browns, Raiders, Bucs and Lions have not won a division game all season.

-- Chris Weinke has now lost 16 straight games as a starting quarterback.

-- Drew Brees needs to average 351 yards a game passing in the last three weeks to break Dan Marino's record. He has already thrown for 349 or more seven times this season and had a three-game stretch against Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Atlanta when he tallied 1,257 yards.

-- The Bengals defense has given up just 33 points in the last four games combined. In fact, the much-maligned unit has held opponents under 21 points nine times this season.

-- What about Tom Brady after a loss? Since 2003, he is 11-1 after a loss and he has thrown 21 touchdowns to just six interceptions in the 12 games following a loss.

Enjoy Week 15 with 25 teams still alive and 13 of the 16 games having playoff implications!

Hey Tony - what about this one - I was going to post this and forgot - did you see the graphic during the Browns game about big plays and the Steelers? - The Steelers lead the entire NFL (by a huge margin) in plays resulting in 10 yards or more - I think we have close to 200 this year - who would of ever thought this? - I always think of us as a running team, so how did we end up leading this category?

Probably by having to throw a whole lot more than the Steelers ever wanted to.

Not to mention, Willie Parker's specialty as a runningback is breaking big runs.
