Perreault and Zajac FaceoffImage by clydeorama via FlickrThis might be good news for the New Jersey Devils, Travis Zajac is a valued member of the New Jersey Devils and had been pretty durable up until this injury. In fact if you look at his Hockey Database page you will see that he has only missed two games in five season before this year.

NJ.COM — Travis Zajac, who has missed the entire season so far with a torn left Achilles’ tendon, is at practice today, having flown into New Jersey over the weekend to tend to some “personal business” he said. The Devils top center said he skated lightly for the first time on Thursday at home in Winnipeg and will skate again this week after he returns to Winnipeg.

I posted a very pedestrian 5-5 record in week 9, but I am still six games over .500 for the season.  I also hit my lock of the week this past Saturday (Michigan), so I am now 6-3 on the season for my weekly lock.  The theme of my week 10 selections is “home favorites”, as there are several squads who should be able to win at home by a larger margin than the oddsmakers are predicting.  All of the spreads below are from the World Sports Exchange’s current lines and are ordered based on my personal confidence in each.

Each week, we look through the Sunday NFL results to find one team that’s rising, one team that’s sinking, and one team that stays at the same level. You’ll see these changes reflected in our weekly Football Relativity comparison of all 32 teams.

RB Steven Jackson and the Rams ran all over the Saints, via stlouisrams.com

Rise – Cincinnati Bengals – The Bengals took care of business in Seattle, taking an early lead and then getting two return touchdowns to run away with a 34-12 win. That’s an impressive victory, given the travel, Seattle’s rabid home crowd, and the Bengals’ reputation. At 5-2, the Bengals are a legitimate playoff contender, and if they can steal a game from the Ravens or Steelers, they’ll suddenly be in the thick of the AFC North race.

Last week, my 68 & 16 Sportscast colleague Justin mentioned that he felt ESPN was demonstrating an anti-Boise bias.  I didn’t really see it at the time, but after this weekend I am starting to pick up on it.  We all know that the BCS Countdown show hosts Craig James, Rece Davis, and Robert Flores have outspokenly identified themselves as “Boise Haters”, but that’s been going on for a while now.  The sign of something deeper and more sinister on ESPN’s behalf came this weekend during the “Final Verdict” Segment of ESPN’s College Gameday Final.  This segment has been going on for several years now and always involves Lou Holtz and Mark May taking a major college football issue and debating each side of it.  After both sides make their arguments, Rece Davis acts as the judge in the case decides in favor of one of the analysts.  Well in this week’s “Final Verdict” there was an extreme departure in format as May and Holtz both argued that Boise State should not play in the national championship game.  The whole purpose of the segment is to have these two analysts square off in a debate, but the whole thing turned incredibly awkward on Saturday when Davis realized that there was no real issue to dispute here, as both commentators took the exact same position.  In the end, he decided to agree with both men and rule in favor of both “Counselor May” and “Counselor Holtz”.
