Our morning waltz around the division...
- The Texans are looking to rebound from a devastating loss and they'll do it behind Matt Schaub, write John McClain.
- Jerome Solomon compares the Texans to the one team that started 0-4 and went to the playoffs.
- McClain talks to Houston native Dennis Quaid about pro football in his hometown.
- The Colts are looking for their dramatic turnaround in Houston to spark a change of direction for the season, writes Mike Chappell.
- Tony Dungy doesn't seem worried about injuries to Dwight Freeney or Anthony Gonzalez, says the AP.
- "In the past 10 years, a total of 21 teams started 5-0, including this year's Titans. All but one ended up making the playoffs and four went on to win the Super Bowl, most recently the 2006 Colts, writes Jim Wyatt.
- As expected the Titans re-signed Chris Simms and Jeff Fisher called him important to the Titans' future, writes Gary Estwick. It sounded like Fisher meant future beyond this season.
- If the Titans had lost in Baltimore, Keith Bulluck's shove of Cortland Finnegan and their little in-house battle would have been a much bigger deal, says Wyatt.
- Brodie Croyle is on track to start at QB for the Chiefs when the Titans next play.
