What did we learn this Sunday?
...the Giants can continue on despite any distraction, apparently. They also showed us they can win without Plaxico Burress, which may be a key as we approach the NFL's stretch run. Eli Manning showed that when the running game can't put up 150+ yards, he can get the job done.
...Adrian Peterson doesn't care about the Bears defensive reputation. That's because he basically owns them. He rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries, helping the Vikings claim first place in the NFC North.
...the Broncos defense is improving. Then again, they had a perfect quarterback in Brett Favre to get a pick and force some mistakes. The Jets are still one of the top teams in AFC, but are by no means ready for any Super Bowl talk.
...San Diego is garbage. Norv Turner is probably on his way out. On that same note, the Falcons are making the NFC South very interesting, where the Bucs and Panthers are 9-3. Atlanta is now 8-4.
