Sometimes it's a great thing when the week's best game happens early. And this week, it happens close to home.
Buffalo (2-2) at Cleveland (2-2)
PITTSBURGH | The meeting was intimate and brief. Following his team's first 0-2 start in more than a decade, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and safety Ryan Clark huddled with remaining players from the club's last Super Bowl title in 2009 and tried to plot a course forward.
CANTON, OHIO | As relaxed as if he had no one to block, Jonathan Ogden became the first Baltimore Raven enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

MINNEAPOLIS | The Vikings are embroiled in a fight for a new stadium that may jeopardize the franchise's 51-year tenure in Minnesota.
CHICAGO | Donovan McNabb made it clear Friday night that he is not ready to retire from the NFL.
MINNEAPOLIS | First, Jay Cutler. Then, Matt Forte. Finally, Brian Urlacher.
Despite being benched for the second straight year, first in Washington and now by Minnesota, Donovan McNabb isn't ready to concede his status as an NFL quarterback is slipping. He's an obvious candidate for television analysis at some point, but for now he's not calling it a career.
Anyone searching for the secret to success in the NFL can find it simply by recognizing what not to do.
WASHINGTON | Welcome to The NFL Lockout.
PHILADELPHIA | The Philadelphia Eagles got their bye a week early -- and not the way they wanted.
MINNEAPOLIS | Brett Favre was bundled up in a heavy gray coat by the time Devin Hester sped through the snow with his record-setting return.
MINNEAPOLIS | Minnesotans often brag about surviving the state's brutal winters, but for the past three decades, their pro football team has played in the shielded warmth of the Metrodome.
