Injuries are the name of the game in the NFL and two of those prominent names on Sunday were Tony Romo and Jay Cutler.

The Dallas Cowboys lost their quarterback for perhaps as long as 10 weeks with a broken left collarbone suffered in their 20-10 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Chicago Bears saw Cutler go out in the second quarter of a 48-23 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Cutler pulled a hamstring and did not return.

In the Sunday night game, the Green Bay Packers beat the Seattle Seahawks 27-17, dropping the Seahawks to 0-2.

Michigan State moved up to second and Ole Miss now ranks third (in a tie with TCU) after beating Alabama in Tuscaloosa for the first time since 1988. Alabama fell from second to No. 12. Auburn dropped out of the poll after being destroyed 48-21 by LSU, which moved up from No. 13 to No. 8.
