 NFL stories for the weekend of Oct. 5-6:
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
FBN-LIONS-BUSH
ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Reggie Bush has been a perfect fit in his first year in Detroit, complementing Calvin Johnson in an offense that has lifted the Lions into a first-place tie in the NFC North. 700 words.

GAME OF THE WEEK
FBN--CHIEFS-TITANS
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Kansas City Chiefs are riding high with new coach Andy Reid and quarterback Alex Smith, one of the NFL's five undefeated teams and just the second team in league history to start 4-0 after losing at least 14 games the year before. Now they have an unexpected early AFC showdown with another team off to a surprising start coming off an ugly season in the Titans (3-1). Ryan Fitzpatrick steps in for an injured Jake Locker at quarterback for Tennessee. 800 words.

FBN--ON FOOTBALL-GOOD, BAD, UGLY
Cue up the spaghetti western music. Here's the Good, Bad and Ugly from the first quarter of the NFL season.
From Peyton Manning's unstoppable offense to Eli Manning's invisible pass protection. From Kansas City's resurgence in the standings to Tampa Bay's insurgence in the locker room. From Seattle's stingy defense to Jacksonville's potential 0-16 threat. 850 words.

FBN--NFL THIS WEEK
The Pack is back - on the field, that is, after a bye. And the first chore is a big one: Green Bay needs to beat Detroit at Lambeau Field or fall far behind in the NFC North. 1,500 words.

FBN--COLTS-REGGIE AT 1,000
INDIANAPOLIS - Every afternoon at training camp, Reggie Wayne stood in the blazing sun and caught passes from the JUGS machine. He caught hundreds of balls each day from every conceivable angle and in every conceivable fashion, putting on a show that dazzled receivers and defensive players alike. For Wayne, this is all part of the routine. It's also a big reason he's on the verge of joining the 1,000-catch club this weekend. 1,000 words.

FBN-BUCCANEERS BYE
TAMPA, Fla. - The quarterback who once provided hope for the future has been benched, and a season that began with high expectations is rapidly slipping away. The winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in disarray, and it'll take more than a bye week to fix the mess coach Greg Schiano has on his hands - on and off the field. 800 words.

FBN--REDSKINS BYE
ASHBURN, Va. - The Washington Redskins love to talk about last year. Barely a day goes by in which a player or coach doesn't reference the fact the Redskins were a miserable 3-6 at their bye week in 2012, and how they emerged from the break a different team by winning seven straight to claim the NFC East title.
The comparisons are inevitable because this year's bye already HAS arrived, and the Redskins are again struggling. They are 1-3, their only victory coming against the undermanned and struggling-even-more Oakland Raiders. 800 words.

FBN--STEELERS BYE
PITTSBURGH - Steelers coach Mike Tomlin describes himself as a man of ``great patience.'' He will need it to endure the franchise's worst start in 45 years. While general manager Kevin Colbert stressed in the offseason Pittsburgh is not rebuilding, there may be no other way to describe the work that lies ahead as a team in transition tries to find its way back. 800 words.

FBN--VIKINGS BYE
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - The Vikings finally picked up their first victory in Week 4, a nail-biter over the winless Pittsburgh Steelers that did little to quell fears it's going to be a long year in Minnesota. When they return from a week off, it may be time for Adrian Peterson to put this team on his back and carry them it the playoffs, just like he did a year ago. Only this year there are so many problems - quarterback, secondary, linebackers, coaching - that even his hulking shoulders may not be broad enough to pull it off. 800 words.
