The article presents information related to various football tournaments. Although the teams Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons have lefty quarterbacks who can make plays, Michael Vick has much more versatility and experience than Chris Simms. Coming off an open week, LaDainian Tomlinson will be well rested and ready to run over the league's second-worst rushing defense. The team Buffalo Bills also lack the downfield passing game to exploit the team San Diego Chargers' weak secondary.
