TJ's Take on Week 9

Editor's note: After taking stock of the NFL for the first nine weeks, TJ's Take will be returning for the rest of the season.

Here's my quick review of everything we saw in Week 9 of the 2005 NFL season:

Offensive player of the week
Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson. Ran for 107 yards and three touchdowns, plus caught a 25-yard score as the Bolts hung on against the Jets, 31-26.

Defensive player of the week
Panthers CB Chris Gamble. Totaled four tackles, knocked down three passes and grabbed a pair of interceptions, returning one of those thefts 61 yards for a score in Carolina's 34-14 win at Tampa Bay.

Coaching move of the Week
Chiefs head coach Dick Vermeil. On the final play of regulation, he sent running back Larry Johnson over the pile for the game-winning touchdown as Kansas City edged Oakland, 27-23.

Next week
The Eagles (at Washington Sunday night) will be on their second leg of their 3-game streak vs. NFC East rivals (vs. Dallas Monday night).
