NEW ENGLAND quarterback Tom Brady might want to watch his back. The Jets' Mark Sanchez, too. After spending the past six seasons harassing quarterbacks for the Houston Texans, defensive end Mario Williams - one of the NFL's top pass-rushers - has found new motivation in a whopping contract and a new home in the AFC East with the Buffalo Bills. "I'm ecstatic, very excited. I can't wait for the opportunity," Williams said yesterday after signing a 6-year deal potentially worth $100 million.

HOW HARD IS IT to pick a 15-team parlay on NFL games against the spread? Well, the actual odds against hitting it are 32,000-1. The odds used for the Delaware parlay bet are 20,000-1. In actuality, it took nearly 74,000 losing bets before somebody hit it. One player, who made his bet at Delaware Park before the Week 5 games, bet $5 on the 15-team parlay proposition. He got all 13 games correct last week. He had the Eagles and Ravens yesterday. Both won and covered. That $5 bet will become $100,000 when the bettor cashes his ticket.

Few players, including Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, will be under more pressure in tomorrow's opener at Houston than Texans rookie defensive end Mario Williams. Pressure automatically accompanies the overall No. 1 selection in the draft. Williams, the 6-foot-7, 291-pounder from North Carolina State, will be trying to live up to the six-year, $54 million contract he signed. In that deal, $26.5 million was guaranteed. Of course, Williams will not only try to justify the selection but that the Texans selected him over perceived fan-favorite Reggie Bush, the Heisman Trophy-winning running back from USC. Williams won't be thinking of anything except attempting to sack McNabb when he lines up - likely at right defensive end. "Obviously, I will be excited, but I'm not really nervous about messing up or anything like that," Williams told reporters in Houston this week.

The Chicago Bears say quarterback Jay Cutler will miss Monday's game at San Francisco because of a concussion. Jason Campbell is expected to start against the 49ers in his place. Cutler's status was in question after he sat out the second half of Sunday's loss to Houston. The Bears believe he was injured on a helmet-to-helmet hit by the Texans' Tim Dobbins, who was fined $30,000 by the league, late in the second quarter.   Bills end skid It took 11 weeks for Mario Williams and the Buffalo Bills' oft-maligned defense to finally flex its muscle and show it's capable of playing up to its high-priced potential.

AFC EAST New England Patriots 2011 record: 13-3 Biggest addition: WR Brandon Lloyd Biggest loss: T Matt Light What's the story: As good as Tom Brady and the Patriots offense are - and they should be even better with Brandon Lloyd - their season hinges on how quickly Bill Belichick can get the defense back on track. After finishing 31st overall on D in 2011, the Pats used first-round picks on Chandler Jones and Dont'a Hightower. Chandler looked like a Rookie of the Year candidate in preseason.

The Houston Texans and their fans were happy to finally play a home game in Week 5 of the NFL season, but they left feeling as if another hurricane had hit. Oh, brother. The Texans experienced the worst meltdown in their short history, blowing a 27-10 lead with 8 minutes to play. Houston quarterback Sage Rosenfelds lost two fumbles, leading to touchdowns by Indianapolis, and saw a last-ditch comeback thwarted by an interception. "I've never seen anything in my life like that," Houston defensive end Mario Williams said.

Houston Texans general manager Charley Casserly shook hands with owner Bob McNair after resigning yesterday. The two said there was no firing and no ugly divorce at the top of the 6-year-old franchise after a 2-14 season, a coaching change and a controversial No. 1 draft pick. Casserly said he's leaving on his own terms to chase a job in the NFL's front office. Speculation had swirled for months that Casserly would follow coach Dom Capers and be fired in the aftermath of the 2005 season.

A PERSON with knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press on Monday that linebacker Joe Mays is likely out for the season after suffering a serious injury to his lower left leg in the Denver Broncos' 34-14 win over the New Orleans Saints. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team had yet to address the injury. The Denver Post first reported the extent of Mays' injury, saying he suffered a fractured fibula just above his left ankle. Mays was injured while blocking for punt returner Trindon Holliday in the fourth quarter Sunday night when a Saints player inadvertently leg-whipped him, and he had to be helped off the field.

An entry by Les Bowen on the Daily News' Eagles blog, Eagletarian, at www.eagletarian.com FORMER EAGLES and Houston Texans defensive end N.D. Kalu has a sports radio talk show in Houston now, on KILT. Like many Houstonians, Kalu was surprised by the departure of middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans to the Eagles; unlike most Houstonians, Kalu still pulls passionately for the Birds, so he isn't too grief-stricken. We thought it might be fun to catch up with N.D. and get his impressions not only of Ryans, his friend and former Texans teammate, but of the differences Ryans will encounter between being a Texans focal point and assuming that role here.
