It's early but don't buy Matt Stafford MVP talk. Derek Carr's led #Raiders to 4-0 record on road. Offense carries team. Defense is dicey.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Asked about Ryan Shazier calling the defense 'garbage,' Steelers DE Cam Heyward said Shazier is being kind, cited 'piss-poor technique' in tackling the Patriots. "You have to have some pride when you're out there," he added.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said there's a chance they'll give a little more work to Rob Kelley in lieu of Matt Jones fumble issues. Gruden said he liked how many touches Chris Thompson had yesterday. But Gruden said, "we're not giving up on Matt Jones. We just have to make sure he protects the dang ball."

Falcons left tackle tackle Jake Matthews looking forward to facing cousin Clay Matthews on Sunday at the Georgia Dome. "I'm excited," Matthews said. "It's a pretty surreal experience. Playing against family, you're playing against your blood, especially the positions we play. We're 1 on 1 against each other for most of the game." The two last faced off during Jake's rookie season.

Hue Jackson on the upcoming trade deadline: "We are not going to trade Joe Thomas. Joe Thomas has a lot to do with what we're trying to accomplish here in the future."

New England's Bill Belichick isn't the only NFL coach who isn't a big fan of the Microsoft tablet called the Surface being used on the sideline. You seldom will find Panthers coach Ron Rivera using one. "Unless there's something I really need to see, I'm not going to look at them. I trying to stay engaged in the game as much as I can to what's going on. If there's something I really need to see I'll look at it on the tablet. It's interesting. I think there are a lot of unintended consequences that come with having those tablets. The paper, take a picture, you get it immediately. You don't have to worry about turning it on, scan through it or anything like that. And again, eventually, it's coming. I don't know. I think sometimes we're making it a lot more complicated than the game really is. It's a very simple game, and I think we outsmart ourselves sometimes.''
