Despite dropping four straight, the mood in the locker room is relatively optomistic - knowing they have to run the table in order to even come close to a Wild Card slot. It's that playoff motivation that keeps driving Kenard Lang - "I've only been to the playoffs twice, and I've been trying to get there every year, we still have a chance and I'm gonna give it everything I've got, every game, I know everybody will. Motivation and all that stuff - Man, I still got a chance to get invited to that Dance, and that's what I want to go to."

After sitting on the inactive list for almost the entire month of November, Tony Scheffler came back with a bang. Scheffler snagged two touchdown passes against the Chargers, one of which was a clear interception until Scheffler batted the ball over the defender's shoulder, grabbing it in the end zone. The other score was equally impromptu - "I was kind of in the wrong spot and ended up scrambling with Jay, and it ended up being a touchdown - it's just the way it worked out yesterday."

Loosing seven different players to season ending injuries has certainly taken it's toll, but Champ Bailey isn't one to lay blame - "You can make up all kinds of excuses, but we've got too many good players backing up previous starters, that could start on a lot of teams in this league, there's just no excuses for the way we've played."

Thoughts and prayers go out to Kansas City Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt, whose currently in serious condition at Dallas hospital.
