A look at the morning headlines around the NFC South.
Defensive end John Abraham hopes to regain his position as the NFL's sack leader after losing it during the bye week.
For about the 256th time since last year, defensive end Julius Peppers talked about being more of a leader. The difference is, this time, it's actually showing on the field.
Rookie return man Dexter Jackson, who some fans in Tampa say has looked soft, disputed that perception. Coach Jon Gruden said he continues to evaluate the return game, but made it a point to say the Bucs aren't giving up on Jackson. Still don't be surprised if someone else is handling returns Sunday against the Cowboys.
