The AFC Notebook

A weekly look at the news, notes and quick hits from around the AFC.

With a disappointing season so far, New England may have done some addition via subtraction with the trading of Randy Moss. This might be one of those deals that work for both teams and it would be a shocker to many if the Vikings didn't make the playoffs. Moss was traded from New England to Minnesota reportedly for a third round draft choice in 2011. LaDainian Tomlinson may have put it best as the Jets prepare for Minnesota this week. "It's good for us that he is leaving our division, but it's bad for us that we go to face him this week. We kind of wish this would have happened a week later," said Tomlinson according to CBS Sports.

Not too often do you hear a sound bite this real from a coach. According to CBS Sports, Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio says this weekend's opponent, the Bills, are not the only desperate team around. "Jacksonville too,'' he said."Yeah, we're desperate, too.'' The game, of course, will be a home coming of sorts for Trent Edwards. Edwards said coming back to Buffalo will be "weird." Edwards added, "It might not be the easiest situation to go through.''

Aging superstar Terrell Owens had a monster day on Sunday with 10 receptions for 222 yards and a touchdown. Recently according to Bengals.com he let it be known that if teams want to play single coverage on him they should be willing to pay the price. "If you want to single cover me, then fine...but if you think that I can't play this game at a high level and put up the numbers that I did, you're in for a rude awakening."

Never one to be camera or recorder shy, Terrell Owens also had some interesting comments on the Randy Moss trade. "You have to go out there and do whatever you can for your family and for yourself because when it comes to management and owners, they don't care about you," said Owens according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Matt Ryan didn't give out any bulletin board material when asked about the Cleveland Browns' secondary, which is giving up 236 passing yards per game. "When you look at them they're talented and physical," Ryan said according to CBS Sports. "They support the run well, they cover well."
