Here's a look at how Jags-over-Texans and Titans-over-Vikings played in the papers and online.

Please let me know if I missed something good with a note to the mailbag.

Houston Texans

Indianapolis Colts

  • Casey Irsay, daughter of the Colts owner, has worked her way up in the family business. A good look behind the scenes by Mike Chappell.
  • Coverage teams have been better for the Colts, writes Phil Richards.
  • A Good Samaritan found and returned Tony Dungy's credit card, reports Mike Chappell.

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • The Jaguars won on a last-second field goal for the second week in a row. Michael C. Wright has the details.
  • Gene Frenette says David Garrard picked up on the bailout theme and got the defense off the hook.
  • Two weeks, two game-winning drives for Garrard, writes Vito Stellino.
  • The Jaguars started without Reggie Nelson (knee) and lost Rashean Mathis (shin) in the second quarter, leaving a thinned out secondary for the Texans to pick apart, according to Hays Carlyon.
  • Jerry Porter gets just one catch in his first game for the Jags, says Stellino.
  • A trick play that worked gave the Jaguars a big boost, writes Tania Ganguli.

Tennessee Titans

  • The Titans show they are an AFC force, writes Tom Weir.
  • As the Titans left the field, instead of "Here we go Titans, here we go," it was "4 and 0 Titans, 4 and 0," says Jim Wyatt.
  • Gus Frerotte accused Kyle Vanden Bosch of a cheap shot, but KVB defends himself, writes Wyatt.
  • The Titans' balance should concern everybody else in the AFC, says Clark Judge.
  • Tennessee bullied the Vikings, says Thomas George of NFL.com.
  • Tennessee's defense managed to slow down Adrian Peterson, writes Gary Estwick.
  • David Climer says with Kerry Collins at quarterback, business is booming.
  • Joe Biddle says everybody on defense contributed.
