1) That was a catch Detroit's Calvin Johnson made, and it would have won the game for Detroit over Chicago. If the refs were handcuffed by a bad rule, then so be it, but that was a catch.
2) Guess who leads the NFC South in points scored? It's your very own Carolina Panthers, who have 18. Everyone else had 17 or less -- even New Orleans -- but the Saints and Tampa Bay are 1-0, while Atlanta and Carolina are 0-1. The Panthers also have allowed the most points in the division so far (31).
3) Did you see the end of the Dallas-Washington game Sunday night? Incredible finish, but that was the right call on the offensive holding. 'Skins win, 13-7.
4) John Fox's press conference is at 12:30 p.m. today, so expect some more news on Panther QB Matt Moore's concussion at that point if not sooner. Given the seriousness that the NFL treats concussions with these days, Carolina will at least have to prepare rookie QB Jimmy Clausen as if he's going to play Sunday, whether he does or not.
