Rex beats Eli in NJ

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

November 13, 2006 | Dick's Stock Watch provides a fast-glance review of the past week in the world of sports, charting whose stock is up and whose is down.

STOCK UP

  • The Chicago Bears showed something on Sunday night, beating the New York Giants at the Meadowlands.

  • Rutgers and coach Greg Schiano are still celebrating last Thursday's win over Louisville. The Scarlet Knights came back from a 25-7 deficit. It has been a year of surprises in college football as Wake Forest and Maryland kept up their winning ways.

  • USC looked great in a 35-10 win over Oregon. The Trojans are back in the title picture but need help. It's USC-Notre Dame in two weeks.

  • Vladimir Klitschko was impressive in a knockout over Calvin Brock in his heavyweight title defense.

  • Justine Henin-Hardenne finished the year number one in women's tennis.

    STOCK DOWN

  • The Bengals blew a 28-7 lead and lost at home to the Chargers, 49-41.

  • Auburn was stunned at home by Georgia, 37-15. So much for the Tigers contending for the national title. Texas and California were also upset.

  • Florida State suffered its first home shutout under Bobby Bowden, losing 30-0 to Wake Forest. Bowden is feeling some heat down in Tallahassee.

  • Cowboys defensive back Marcus Coleman was released after his latest incident, an arrest on suspicion of DUI. He made a bad decision and paid the price.

  • The once-proud Philadelphia Flyers have just three wins in 16 games this season.
