Texans at Jets 8:30 p.m., ESPN   Line: Texans by 8. The skinny: With New York's Darrelle Revis out for the season with a torn knee ligament, it will be Antonio Cromartie's job to cover Houston's Andre Johnson on Monday night. Johnson is 76 yards shy of 10,000 for his career. If Johnson surpasses 10,000 on Monday, he will become the sixth-fastest player in NFL history to accomplish the feat, doing it in his 127th game. The Texans (4-0) are led by former West Chester East star Matt Schaub, who has passed for 953 yards and seven touchdowns.

IN ONE OF OUR rare incursions into the world of sports, we want to extend kudos to the Pittsburgh Steelers and uh-ohs to Olympic hero Michael Phelps. On Sunday, in a performance that was just good enough to turn back a second-half rally by the resurgent Arizona Cardinals, the Steelers became the first team in NFL history to win six Super Bowls. Give them credit - the Cardinals just missed reversing their hapless history by the width of Steeler receiver Santonio Holmes' toes.

Super Bowl XLIII was seen by an estimated audience of 95.4 million people, second only to last year's game as the most-watched Super Bowl ever. Viewership peaked in the fourth quarter, when Arizona took the lead on Larry Fitzgerald's 64-yard touchdown reception, only to have it snatched back when Santonio Holmes' end zone leap gave Pittsburgh a 27-23 win. More than 100 million Americans were watching between 9:30 and 10 p.m., according to...

Unexpectedly, nothing came on the side for Matt Hasselbeck. The Seahawks were hoping their quarterback might be able to throw on the side sometime before the NFC West leaders (6-4) flew to St. Louis to play the Rams (2-8) tomorrow. Instead, Hasselbeck asked into yesterday's practice and was in the middle of the field running the offense for the first time all week. The pain in his side, which he's had since taking a hit in the ribs during Sunday's win over Chicago? That didn't happen, either.

Jeff Reed kicked a 33-yard field goal with 4:32 gone in overtime and the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers again relied on Ben Roethlisberger's ability to lead clutch scoring drives to beat the Tennessee Titans, 13-10, in the NFL season opener last night. The Steelers, their running game stuffed by Tennessee's defense, didn't get going until Roethlisberger began repeatedly finding Santonio Holmes and Hines Ward open downfield. Roethlisberger went 33-for-43 for 363 yards, with Holmes - the Super Bowl star - making nine catches for 131 yards and Ward, despite a potentially costly fumble, making eight for 103. The Titans lost the coin toss to start the overtime and, as so often happens, never saw the ball again.

1Keep Ben standing: The Cardinals aren't a great pass-rushing team. They got to opposing quarterbacks just 31 times this season. But the Steelers' offensive line has had its problems protecting Ben Roethlisberger. He was sacked 46 times this season. The only quarterback who got sacked more was the Patriots' Matt Cassel (47). Twenty of those 46 sacks came in the Steelers' four lossess. If his line keeps the rush off Big Ben, he should be able to do some damage to the Cardinals' defense.

What is old is new again. Randy Moss is back. After falling into Oakland's black hole for two years, Moss has rebounded to become the runaway MVP candidate in fantasy football. Though there are quarterbacks piling up huge numbers, including his own, Moss provides the bigger return on investment. How big of a steal was Moss in fantasy drafts? With his coming off the worst season of his career, rumors persisted that he had lost a step. Even pairing up with Tom Brady in New England did not propel his fantasy stock back into the top 10 highest-ranked receivers.

LAST YEAR, Cleveland's Josh Gordon was the Lamborghini of wide receivers. Led the league in receiving yards despite having Moe, Larry and Hoyer as his quarterbacks. Posted consecutive 200-yard games, something no one had ever done. This year, the Lamborghini has some rust on it. It has to. Gordon was suspended the first 10 games for repeated drug violations - which also dogged him in college - and watched as the Browns somehow put together a respectable 6-4 record. It's a mark that would have been better except for two puzzling losses to the bad Jaguars and undermanned Texans by a combined 47-13.

Looks like the Miami Dolphins have found the secret to stopping New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Sign a reserve safety off the San Francisco 49ers' practice squad and give him his first NFL start against the future Hall-of-Famer. (It's so simple, you wonder why nobody ever tried it before.) After Michael Thomas stepped in front of Austin Collie to intercept Brady's fourth-down pass in the end zone with two seconds left on Sunday, sealing a seesaw, 24-20 victory over the Pats, he flopped to his back and was swarmed by his new teammates.

THINGS JUST got a lot tougher for the struggling New York Jets. Wide receiver Santonio Holmes will miss the rest of this season with an injured left foot, leaving the Jets without their top offensive playmaker. The team announced Wednesday that Holmes will require surgery and was placed on season-ending injured reserve. Head coach Rex Ryan said Holmes suffered a Lisfranc injury, which usually involves a sprain or tear of the ligament in the middle of the foot that holds the first two toes together.

Looks like New York Jets receiver Santonio Holmes was auditioning for the Mummers while kind-of, sort-of playing in his team's playoff dream-killing, 19-17 loss to the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday. He was strutting, but his teammates didn't dig his act. The Jets captain was yanked as his team tried to rally in the fourth quarter, and though there were conflicting stories as to who did it, everybody knew why. After the game, players told the Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger that Holmes was "moping" throughout the game, and the problems came to a head when the receiver and a teammate argued in the huddle in the fourth quarter.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - This was one frantic finish the New York Jets might consider a turning point if they end up pulling off another late-season playoff push. Mark Sanchez threw a career-high four touchdown passes, including the winning 16-yard score to Santonio Holmes with just over a minute remaining, as the Jets kept pace in the AFC playoff race with a 28-24 comeback victory over the Buffalo Bills yesterday. "He's at his best," coach Rex Ryan said of his quarterback, "in big moments.

PLAXICO BURRESS missed his second straight practice with the New York Jets because of an ankle injury. The wide receiver was expected to practice for the first time Thursday once the labor agreement was ratified. But he rolled his left ankle while running routes with Santonio Holmes on Wednesday. He was in uniform for yesterday's afternoon practice, as he was Thursday, but mostly as a sideline spectator. "I know he's itching to go and things, but we're going to be smart," coach Rex Ryan said.

MATT HASSELBECK is heading to Music City. Santonio Holmes is staying at home in the Meadowlands. Two days after the lockout ended, NFL teams are doing deals at a frantic pace, with some big names changing addresses, and others staying put. Hasselbeck is leaving Seattle for Tennessee, where he likely will start. He spent the past 10 seasons with the Seahawks, leading them to the 2005 NFC title. The Titans drafted quarterback Jake Locker eighth overall in April, but needed a veteran presence after Kerry Collins retired; they plan to trade or release Vince Young.

ARLINGTON, Texas - A Super Bowl plagued all week by Texas-sized problems had fans on the edge of their seats - if they had seats, that is. Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers took the field with just under two minutes left and 87 yards to travel for another game-winning touchdown. "I thought it would be another one of those magical moments," wide receiver Hines Ward said. "Two minutes, one time-out, needing a touchdown. We just didn't finish the job. " After being investigated for sexual assault, suspended for four games, and humiliated, Roethlisberger could have written a compelling end to this chapter of his life and career.
