Detroit acquires wide receiver Mike Thomas to Jacksonville for an undisclosed draft pick. Having lost Nate Burleson for the season to injury, the Lions needed depth at receiver while it turns out Thomas has fallen out of favor with the coaching staff. He had been passed on the depth charts by two recievers and had been stripped of punt returning duties.

Mikel Leshoure rushes for three touchdowns in the first half, a first in team history, to lead to Detroit to a 31-14 win over Jacksonville. The Lions ran 414 yards total offense, 149 on the ground and 285 passing, not an unexpected result in hindsight, since Jacksonville is ranked 27th in total defense and against the run and 25th in passing. The Jaguars remain the league's worst scoring team and their point total was the result of the Lions playing a little too soft in the fourth quarter.

Mistakes, missed chances, costly penalties, confusion, and questionable strategy, inside the red zone force Cleveland to settle for five field goals enroute to a 25-15 loss to Baltimore. After the fifth field goal, Baltimore would score the winning touchdown with 4:26 left on a 19 yard pass from Flacco to Boldin. Cleveland got 116 yards rushing against a depleted Ravens defense which got chewed up for 622 yards in the previous three games which indicates how bad their offense is.

New England running back Brandon Bolden has been suspended for four games for violating the the league substance policy. He has had a knee injury since runnig for 134 yards against Buffalo in week 4 but that might not hurt the Patriots this weekend for their second meeting against Buffalo since (1), New England has a deep backfield and second, Buffalo is dead last in the NFL against the run. In fact, the Bills were torched for 556 yards on the ground against the Patriots and the 49ers in consecutive weeks.

Dallas gets two special teams touchdowns, a 78 yard punt return and 47 pass interception, enroute to a 38-23 win over Philadelphia. The Cowboys also benefited from the league offensive line and a defense that couldn't stop Dallas from scoring inside the red zone. Dallas entered the game 26th in the NFL in that category.
