MINNEAPOLIS - Rookie Doug Martin ran for 135 yards and a touchdown and caught a 64-yard touchdown pass, one of three thrown by Josh Freeman, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Minnesota Vikings, 36-17, Thursday night. The Bucs came out strong against Minnesota's sputtering offense. Martin had 214 total yards and took a screen pass all the way on the fourth play of the second half to give Tampa Bay (3-4) a 27-10 lead. After Connor Barth's third field goal made it 30-10, Adrian Peterson had a season-best 64-yard touchdown run that briefly gave Minnesota (5-3)

TAMPA, Fla. - Josh Freeman threw for 287 yards and a touchdown, LeGarrette Blount ran for 127 yards and a score, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Indianapolis Colts last night, 24-17. Freeman, who ran for a touchdown early in the game, scrambled for a huge first down on the winning drive as the Buccaneers (3-1) won their third consecutive game. The Colts fell to 0-4 for the first time since 1998, Peyton Manning's rookie season. Manning has watched all four games, unable to play because of a neck injury.

DENVER - Denver's defense was so dominant in beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that the Broncos even spared tackle Mitch Unrein to help unclog their sputtering offense. When he wasn't catching Peyton Manning's first touchdown pass, Unrein helped build a wall of defenders that slowed down Doug Martin, flustered Josh Freeman and derailed the Bucs in Denver's 31-23 win Sunday. It was the seventh straight win for the Broncos (9-3), who clinched the AFC West title. The Buccaneers (6-6)

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The season is starting to become a blur for the Carolina Panthers as one heartbreaking loss bleeds into another. But it's hard to imagine one tougher to swallow than Sunday's 27-21 overtime defeat to the rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers in which the Panthers surrendered an 11-point lead with six minutes left in regulation. "It's kind of been the story of our season," quarterback Cam Newton said. No doubt. Of Carolina's last six losses, the Panthers (2-8) have led in the fourth quarter in five of them.

THE EAGLES aren't getting any love from ESPN. First, senior NFL writer John Clayton ranked the Birds' Michael Vick at No. 25 among the league's 32 starting quarterbacks, behind the likes of the Bucs' Josh Freeman (23) and the Bengals' Andy Dalton (19). For Vick, it was quite a drop from last season when Clayton had him at No. 9. As if that wasn't bad enough, ESPN - in conjunction with Pro Football Focus - recently predicted the score of all 267 regular-season games this season.

Wondering whether to start Matt Ryan and Doug Martin, or to bench Christian Ponder and Arrelious Benn? Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 10 of the 2012 season.   Watch 'em roll Matt Stafford, QB, Lions at Vikings. He has performed well over the last two games, and has a solid track record against Minnesota, which has coughed up three TD passes and had no interceptions in the last two games against Russell Wilson and Josh Freeman. Stevan Ridley, RB, Patriots vs. Bills.

Sam Bradford, Rams: Looking for a strong year from Bradford, especially since the only way the Rams likely will move the ball is through the air. He's only a QB2, but could be a good draft-to-trade chip for a team that has an exceptional QB1. Tom Brady, Patriots: If grandpa carved up the Thanksgiving turkey the way Brady sliced up the Eagles and Buccaneers during training camp, our whole family still would be full. Brady is missing a lot of weapons, but it doesn't seem to have slowed him down.

Here are my picks to roll and get rolled in Week 14 of the 2012 season.   Watch 'em roll Matt Schaub, QB, Texans at Patriots. It's always nice having a starter or two playing on Monday night, especially when it's your QB facing a lousy secondary. Schaub isn't the most consistent fantasy performer, but he's been sharp enough to trust against one of the NFL's passing doormats. BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, Bengals vs. Cowboys. The Law Firm is on a monster run, while the Dallas run defense is imploding.

The Kansas City Chiefs have been riding a hot streak, courtesy of a few major breaks - a couple of wins over doormats, a shutout of a Raiders team playing without its starting quarterback, and then Monday night's inexplicable fumble by San Diego's Philip Rivers that led to an overtime victory over the Chargers. Voila, a four-game winning streak. Monday's 23-20 overtime win was one for the books, though. The Chiefs (4-3) led all the way, but San Diego had a chance to win in regulation with the ball at the 15-yard line and 48 seconds on the clock.

Keenan Allen, Chargers: Allen's 71 catches were the seventh-most ever by a rookie wide receiver. He slipped to the third round coming out of Cal because of a knee injury. He's not sneaking up on anyone anymore. Antonio Brown, Steelers: Second in the league in catches (110) and yards (1,499). Look for him to improve on eight touchdowns and crack the top-five receivers heading into 2015. Dez Bryant, Cowboys: Since he had 12 TDs in 2012 and 13 in 2013, he's going to get 14 in 2014, right?

SOME GUYS like the bull's-eye. Some guys feel every sling and arrow fired once they don it, or once it is draped upon them. In January 2007, Jimmy Rollins spiced up our baseball offseason by proclaiming that the Phillies were "the team to beat" in the National League East. This was after their third consecutive second-place finish in 2006, 12 games behind the Mets, and their fourth runner-up run in the decade. Serious questions had surfaced about the team's mettle and mentality.

THE EAGLES might need for their defense to win one for them Sunday. That hasn't happened this season. In fact, it hasn't happened in more than a calendar year, since the Sept. 30, 2012, home win over the Giants, 19-17. The defense wasn't bad last week. It picked off Eli Manning three times in the fourth quarter to help nail down a 36-21 road victory over those same Giants, after a shaky third quarter. But the Eagles probably aren't scoring 36 points on Tampa's defense. Maybe not even 26 points, against a team that is allowing just 17.5 per game, despite an 0-4 record.

EARL WOLFF met Mike Glennon at the North Carolina State football camp between their junior and senior years in high school. "I've never seen a quarterback in high school throw the way he did. I was like, 'Who is this guy?' " Wolff recalled yesterday. On Sunday, the rookie safety and the Eagles visit the Tampa Bay Bucs, quarterbacked by Glennon, who, a year after their high school encounter, joined Wolff in the 2008 freshman class at N.C. State. They redshirted together, so they ended up spending five football seasons in Raleigh before the Bucs took Glennon in the third round last spring, two rounds before Wolff became an Eagle.

TAMPA - They don't care if you tell them they stink. They accept accurate descriptions of their misplays, their mistakes, their misevaluated talent. But don't call them quitters. The Eagles, undermanned as ever, blew a 10-point first-half lead over the Bucs . . . then, behind charismatic rookie quarterback Nick Foles, overcame an 11-point, fourth-quarter deficit against a host in playoff contention. The collective heart will be questioned when any team loses eight in a row after a 3-1 start; especially when that team underachieved the previous season.
