SI's fearless NFL expert opines on all the latest news, buzz and inside information. This is just a taste of what you'll get online.

1 I think Chicago DE Adewale Ogunleye played one of the best games of his life on Sunday at Lambeau Field, with three tackles for loss, two sacks and constant pressure on Aaron Rodgers. But I didn't make Ogunleye (below) my defensive player of the week, because of the sievelike blocking of Packers RT Allen Barbre.

3 I think that even though Brady Quinn held his own against a very good Vikings defense (21 of 35 for 205 passing yards, one TD and one interception), he hardly put a vise grip on the starting QB job in Cleveland.
