Three observations …
• Now suspended indefinitely, receiver Justin Blackmon has further solidified the Vikings’ selection of Matt Kalil as the no-brainer draft pick of 2012.
• Safety Tyrann Mathieu, the Cardinals’ third-round draft pick and the most controversial figure in this year’s draft, is one of six NFL players with at least two interceptions, a sack and a forced fumble. He was named NFL defensive rookie of the month for October.
• Peyton Manning’s fourth-quarter passer rating: 122.3, No. 1. Eli Manning’s fourth-quarter passer rating: 40.9, No. 38.
Two predictions …
• The Bills are tough enough at home – beating Baltimore and Carolina and losing to New England and Cincinnati by a combined five points — to hand the Chiefs their first loss of the season.
• The newly balanced Packers will rush for more than 200 yards against Chicago’s 25th-ranked run defense.
