Will this be the NFL run of the year? Tampa Bay's LeGarrette Blount reeled off a 54-yard touchdown run that you'll see all over sports highlight shows this week, not to mention every sports blog in existence. And, to be honest, it's impressive. When he hits the line of scrimmage, it looks as if Blount will be stopped, but he bounces off defenders and finds a hole. Then, as re rumbles toward the end zone, he makes no less than six other Packers players miss him. Too bad the Buccaneers couldn't beat the Packers, though, right Bears fans?

One point. A single point in the standings was all that kept the Fire from the playoffs in 2013. They've had all offseason to think about the rough start - they didn't score a goal until their fourth game - and a disappointing season finale in which a win would have changed their fate. To a man, the players point to a better beginning as essential to erasing those memories. "The first part of the season was just horrible; we got nothing out of the first part of the season," midfielder Patrick Nyarko said.

It was the touchdown celebration of the day, if not the season. After Buffalo receiver Steve Johnson caught a five-yard pass that gave the Bills a 14-7 lead over the N.Y. Jets, Johnson unholstered his finger guns and proceeded to "shoot himself" in the thigh. The celebration mocked Jets receiver Plaxico Burress' famous self-inflicted gunshot wound that sent him to jail three years ago. But he wasn't done. Johnson then mocked Jets receiver Santonio Holmes flight-crew moves by spreading his arms and flying through the end zone before "crashing" to the turf.

It was one of those days in the NFL. The Green Bay Packers who looked so unbeatable the first 14 weeks of the season suddenly looked average against unlikely giant slayer Kansas City. And who were two of the stars of the Chiefs' win? Ex-Bears Kyle Orton and Thomas Jones. That's gotta hurt, right Bears fans? And down Interstate 65 in Indianapolis, the Colts got their first win of the season by toppling Tennessee 27-13. The bad news for the Colts? The team confirmed quarterback Peyton Manning will not play this season, even after news leaked that he had practiced last week and wanted to...

Carolina rookie quarterback Cam Newton has done something no other NFL quarterback has ever done. Not Peyton Manning. Not Tom Brady. Not Michael Vick. With three rushing touchdowns Sunday - his 11th, 12th and 13th this year - Newton broke the single-season record for quarterbacks set by Steve Grogan in 1976. Henceforth, let's call him Big Newton. Newton came into the league a question mark, but he's proved himself capable of playing QB in the NFL. Now, if only the Panthers could win a few more of these games.

Eight down, eight to go. Green Bay is halfway to going undefeated, and the way the Packers are playing, it'd be hard to bet against them. Thanks to their 45-38 win over San Diego on Sunday, the Packers have scored at least 24 points in eight straight games for the first time in franchise history. (Hear that, Brett Favre?) And this was a road game against a team with a potent offense. Though in the grand scheme of things, it might be better for the Bears if Green Bay goes undefeated - until their clash in Week 15, that is. If the Packers are 14-0 entering...

It's been awhile since Bears fans were this giddy about the start of the season, and with good reason. The team appears healthy. Jay Cutler's got tons of weapons on offense. And Urlacher's knee … well, we're not sure what to make of that yet. But even that uncertainty couldn't ruin the excitement of the season opener, and all the firsts that came with it.   PREGAME Bear to run on the field: Brian Urlacher. It's a good sign, even if all he was trying to do was convince the Colts his ailing knee is a non-issue.

In the end, the Bears' scrappy effort wasn't enough. "It was really a day of missed opportunities," coach Marc Trestman said. Settling for a field goal. Costly penalties. They were just part of the equation in Sunday's 21-19 loss to Detroit at Soldier Field. Gone is the Bears' share of first place in the NFC North, as they dropped to 5-4. Two of those losses are to Detroit. Bears receiver Brandon Marshall, for one, really does not like the Lions (6-3), who lead the division.
