West Coast Action

First off, I expect more big action from Reuben Droughns, and hopefully some nice turn-overs against Oakland's sloppy offense. I predict 20-7, Denver. That is all.

Off to a great start!!

3-0 and we're at the top of the AFC West. Let's keep it that way. Here's some news from

While the offense sputtered Sunday, Jake Plummer and company did just enough thanks to a strong defensive effort in beating the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16-13. Plummer threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Patrick Hape and Jason Elam kicked three field goals, the last of which snapped a 13-13 tie midway through the fourth quarter. The defense limited Tampa Bay to just one touchdown on a play in which former Bucs safety John Lynch failed to knock down receiver Michael Clayton, who was getting up off the ground. "It's a shame. Ultimately the responsibility lays on me. I've got to tackle him," said Lynch, who had an emotional return to Tampa Bay. "There's a new league emphasis. If they're laying down and you hit them, you're going to get 15 yards. I tried to do the right thing for the first time in my career and keep (the NFL) out of my pocket, and I get burned."
