Trench warfare

In the second part of our two-part series on life along the line, we take a look at the men on the defensive side of the ball. We name the five best D-lines in the NFL, and Jeff Reynolds constructs the “Ultimate Defensive Line,” choosing the four best players at their respective positions.

Déjà vu

Once again, the Broncos believe they have found the next great NFL running back. This time around, his name is Quentin Griffin. Get to know him — NFL defenses are.

NFC South showdown

Carolina hosts Atlanta in what will be a key divisional battle. While it’s still early, our Game of the Week could go a long way in determining how things shake out in the South.

Scouting philosophy

GM Ozzie Newsome provides insight into how the Ravens have been so adept at identifying and acquiring the right personnel.
