NFL Week 6 Early Thoughts - The Late Games

* You have to think that when Tony Romo looks at Tom Brady he must think "hey, that's what I want to be like when I grow up!" A sub-par (for Brady) first 57 minutes with 2 INT's get tossed out as he leads the Patriots on a 78-yard drive for a game-winning touchdown to Aaron Hernandez, a drive in roughly two minutes that saw Brady go 8 for 9 and the winning score with 22 seconds left.  Romo, just moments earlier, couldn't get the Cowboys in the end zone and had to settle for a FG.

* The Bucs grew up immeasurably, coming home to knock off the Saints 26-20 just one week after getting pasted in San Francisco by the 49ers.

* Nice touch by the Raiders, who lit an eternal flame for the recently passed owner Al Davis.  The Raiders, who lost starting QB Jason Campbell for the season with a broken collarbone, then went out and beat the Browns.

* Hey Houston, I think we've been down this road before. The Texans are now back to Earth at 3-3 after a loss in Baltimore.
