Ronnie Spectacular

Ronnie Brown and the Miami Dolphins knock Yankee Stadium's curtain call off the front page of ESPN's SportsCenter.

By the numbers...
The Pats 21 game regular season winning streak, an NFL record, ends.
Pats 15 game home winning streak ends.
This is the first week the Patriots have not lead the AFC East, since week 6, 2003
The Dolphins end a 11 game road losing streak.

In Philly, the Birds defense swarmed the Steelers and Correll Buckhalter leaped for the game's only TD as the Eagles chalk up their 2nd win over visiting Pittsburgh. It was a dominating and breath-taking win, although most of the breaths were taken when Brian Westbrook turned his right ankle awkwardly.

Other significant sports happenings...
The US defeats Europe in a convincing 16 1/2 to 11 1/2 win in the Ryder Cup.
The Phils stretch out to a somewhat comfy 1 1/2 game lead in the NL East.
Greg Biffle makes in two in a row by winning at Dover, moving up 6 positions in the cup standings.

...and page13-SFL takes the Ray Nap division lead, thanks to Ronnie Brown.
