    Who's the only receiver in NFL history to have 200-yard receiving games for three different teams?

    He played for the Cowboys, and believe it or not, no, it's not Joey Galloway.

    Terrell Owens came to life on Sunday for his newest new team in Cincinnati, going for 200-plus for his third team, including a 78-yard touchdown reception against the Browns.

    Owens is no better than a No. 3 receiver in terms of fantasy play, but he's always going to be a candidate for a big game like he had Sunday, especially in the Bengals offense that has inexplicably abandoned the running game that made them a successful unit last year behind Cedric Benson. Now, Carson Palmer is slingin' the ball all over the field.

    Of course, the Browns won the game, which probably didn't bother T.O. since he had his day in the sun. As only T.O. could say, "I love me some me."

    I have to give an honorable mention here to my boy LaDainian Tomlinson, who I highlighted on Friday as my Stud of the Week. He returned the love by rushing for 133 yards and two touchdowns against an albeit putrid Buffalo Bills defense. I think it's officially safe to say L.T. is back in New York.

    As far as disappointments from the weekend, you have to start and end with Chris Johnson's 19 carries for 53 yards and a lost fumble with no touchdowns against a painfully average Broncos defense.

    Also, the Michael Vick Comeback Player of the Year campaign took a big hit when he was sandwiched by two Redskins defenders and suffered a rib cartilage injury. He's highly, highly questionable to play this weekend against the 49ers, and the Eagles offense with Kevin Kolb is vastly different than the Eagles offense with Vick, and by vastly different, I mean basically non-existent. Bad news for Philly. Bad things happen to teams whose fans boo Santa Claus and players with neck injuries.
