Steelers – Moving Up
You pitch a shutout you move up the rankings.  The Steelers defense held Shaun Alexander to a paltry 25 rushing yards on 11 carries.  James Farrior led the Steelers defense with 2 of their 3 total sacks of Matt Hasslebeck and Ike Taylor added an interception too.

Chargers – Moving Up
Rookie Brandon Siler put a special teams TD on the board and the Chargers were able to hold Denver to just 3 points in their own stadium.  Matt Wilhelm was back in the starting lineup for the Chargers and the defense responded with a big game just when the Chargers needed one.

Redskins – Moving Up
The Redskins held the Mike Martz Detroit offense to ZERO TD’s.  Andre Carter led the defense with 2 sacks (5 total) and Carlos Rogers returned an interception for a TD.  John Kitna was held to just 106 yards passing and Kevin Jones did not crack 50 yards rushing. Greg Williams’s defense is starting to click and should only get better as the season progresses.

Buccaneers – Moving Down
In a game where Marvin Harrison and Joseph Addai were both held out due to injuries, one would have expected the Buccaneers to play better on defense.  However, the Buccaneers gave up 121 rushing yards and 2 scores to Indy running back Kenton Keith (in his 1st ever NFL start).  The Buccaneers were only able to log one interception on the day. 

Broncos – Moving Down
All the Broncos did was give up 41 points on their home field.  The Chargers ran up over 200 yards on the ground with 2 scores and added another 270 thru the air with 2 more scores.  The Bronco defense faced 55 offensive plays on the day and they allowed the Chargers just under 10 yards per offensive play (excluding the 4 QB carries for -5 yards).  Many do not realize just how close the Broncos are to being 0-5.  They need to get this defense fixed and in a hurry or its going to be a long season for their fans.
