NFL Sunday News Round Up

Peyton  Manning's return  to Indianapolis highlights Sundays Week 7 slate. The 
All-Pro will lead his high-powered Denver Broncos against his successor Andrew 
Luck and the Colts on Sunday night. Manning was released by the Colts on March 
7,  2012 after  he  was attempting  to recover  from  four different  surgical 
procedures  on  his neck. The Colts  focused on their future and Luck. Manning 
hasn't  slowed  down remotely in the  Rockies and currently leads the NFL with 
2,179  passing  yards, 22  touchdowns --  the most ever  through the first six 
games of a season. 

                                      === 

There should be no shortage of points when the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia 
Eagles  battle  for sole possession  of first place in  the NFC East Sunday at 
Lincoln  Financial Field. Dallas  is second in the NFL with an average of 30.5 
points per game and Philadelphia is fourth with 27.2 ppg. Defense should be at 
a  minimum  between these NFC East  rivals, especially for the Eagles, who are 
31st against the pass (314.5) and dead last in total yards allowed (420.2). 

                                      === 

The  Baltimore  Ravens and  Pittsburgh Steelers  are ready  to throw out their 
records  when  they renew their AFC  North rivalry this Sunday at Heinz Field. 
Pittsburgh dropped its first four games to the season for the first time since 
1968,  but the bye week seemed to get the club on track as it picked up a 19-6 
road  victory last Sunday  over the New York Jets. The Ravens (3-3) are coming 
off a 19-17 loss to Green Bay, their second setback in three weeks. 

                                      === 

Tennessee  Titans quarterback Jake Locker has been cleared to play in Sunday's 
game  against the  San Francisco 49ers and  will make his first start in three 
weeks, a Tennessee newspaper reported Saturday. Locker has been sidelined with 
a  sprained right knee and hip he sustained in a win over the New York Jets on 
Sept. 29. He participated in all three practices during the week, however, and 
the  Titans'  coaches were encouraged  with his progress. The 2011 first-round 
pick  was  initially  given  a  timetable  of  4-to-6  weeks  to  return,  and 
expectations were that the Titans were planning to hold Locker out through its 
upcoming  Week 8 bye. Tennessee had won three of its first four outings of the 
season  with  Locker under center, but  has lost two straight with backup Ryan 
Fitzpatrick at the controls. 

                                      === 

The  Denver  Broncos activated  linebacker Von Miller  on Saturday, making him 
eligible  to play  for the  first  time this  season on  Sunday night  against 
Indianapolis.  Miller  was suspended  for the first  six games after violating 
the league's substance abuse policy.
