    2. New England (1-0). I have one word for Randy Moss: clueless. And I like him.

    Special Teams Player of the Week
    Brandon Tate, KR/WR, New England

    Here's the not-so-secret weapon the Patriots have been thinking all summer long would pay dividends once the real games started. Tom Brady bragged about him to me in May, and Tate blew through the Ram kick-coverage team in preseason Week 3 for a 97-yard touchdown. Against the Bengals Sunday, he grabbed a bouncing kickoff and sprinted/weaved untouched 97 yards for a crippling touchdown.

    Coach of the Week
    Bill Belichick, head coach, New England

    He's taken the slings and arrows throughout the offseason for not doing enough at the receiver position or the running back position; his starting wideouts combined for 13 catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns against Cincinnati, while his backs rushed for a clock-eating 118 yards. The defense was too young or didn't make enough of an impact.

    You had to see this game against the Bengals to realize much of the yardage Cincinnati made was after the game seemed well in hand; 428 yards happen when you fall behind 24-0. Four recent very high draft picks -- Patrick Chung, Jerod Mayo, Darius Butler and Brandon Meriweather -- combined for 43 tackles. For one Sunday at least, the moves of the best coach in football were home runs.

    q. Devin McCourty certainly wasn't scared Sunday for the Patriots.

    LOL @ King. I'm pretty sure he's the only one who had out the arrows when it comes to the wideout position. I think most teams would be pretty comfortable with Moss-Welker-Tate-Edelman with Hernandez-Gronk-Crump as well.

    Backpedalling so fast like that he'd have made a good corner back.
