Programming note: Catching early flight

NEWARK, N.J. -- This lost NFC West weekend is finally behind us.

Like the fourth-quarter leads Arizona and San Francisco enjoyed in Week 2, it was fun while it lasted.

Tailgating with Cardinals fans at FedEx Field and Rams fans at MetLife Stadium proved to be a highlight and something we'll repeat when schedules match up.

I'm about to board a cross-country flight that may or may not allow Internet access. I've scheduled the usual Tuesday power rankings post, plus NFC West Stock Watch, and hope to supplement that if I'm able to get online.
