 This is the utter absurdity of polls. Or, better yet, those voting.Houston beat Oklahoma State45-35 in Stillwater, Okla., onSaturday, yet the Cougars (21) findthemselves five places behind theCowboys (16) in The AssociatedPress poll.What, the 10-point road winwasn’t enough to convincevoters that Houston is better thanOklahoma State and, therefore,should be ranked higher?Other notables in the Week 2AP poll:
Underrated:
No. 25Michigan. The quarterback (TateForcier) finally fits the system.
Overrated:
No. 20 Miami.Now how good does that FSU winlook (hello, Jacksonville State)?
Underrated:
Unranked NotreDame. So voters watched thatgame, that Irish offense, and think that loss to Michigan means thereare 25 better teams?
 Overrated:
No. 14 Georgia Tech. Jackets defense has a longway to go.

BY VINNIE IYER
Quarterbacks ride the roller coasteron the opening Sunday of the ’09season:
Highs
Drew Brees, Saints.
Picking up hisDan Marino-like pace from ’08,Brees says he can do even better thanhis six-TD day vs. Detroit: “Therewas probably one or two more thatwe left out there. That’s what keepsyou coming back.”
Brett Favre, Vikings.
Favre’s mostimportant number at Cleveland: Zeroturnovers. He did what he was hewas supposed to do, facilitating therunning of Adrian Peterson. “As longas we win, that’s what it’s all about,”Favre said.
Aaron Rodgers, Packers.
He had a breakout ’08 season, but the teamfinished 6-10. His last-minute, game-winning TD pass vs. Chicago was acrucial start to Green Bay’s divisiontitle quest.
Tony Romo, Cowboys.
So much forstruggling without Terrell Owens.Romo found each of his top threewide receivers—Roy Williams, MilesAustin and Patrick Crayton—for longTD passes.
 
Mark Sanchez, Jets.
While fellowrookie Matt Stafford struggled (threeinterceptions), Sanchez delivered apoised, veteran-like performance in awin at Houston.
Lows
Jay Cutler, Bears.
He couldn’t askfor a more disastrous debut, pressingand throwing four interceptionsagainst the rival Packers.
Jake Delhomme, Panthers.
In hisfirst game since his six-turnoverplayoff meltdown, Delhomme gaveup the ball five times to the Eagles before being benched. Coach JohnFox will give Delhomme the startnext week at Atlanta, saying, “I don’tthink it was all Jake’s fault.”
Donovan McNabb, Eagles.
He sus-tained a broken rib at Carolina, whichmight cause the team to turn to KevinKolb at least for a week. Running back Brian Westbrook, however, isoptimistic: “Donovan is very resil-ient. He heals fast.”
Matt Schaub, Texans.
Houston’spotentially prolific offense didn’tproduce a touchdown against the Jets’ 3-4 defense.
Kurt Warner, Cardinals.
The 49ers’pass rush rattled Warner, resultingin several inaccurate throws and twocostly interceptions.

Bills at Patriots
7 p.m., ESPN
With Tom Brady coming back from his majorknee injury, you can bet Patriots fans won’t relaxuntil their superstar looks healthy and fires off hisfirst TD pass of 2009. There’s a good chance hethrows it to Randy Moss, who will need to sharethe superstar wide receiver spotlight with new Bill Terrell Owens.
— Vinnie Iyer 
Chargers at Raiders
10:15 p.m., ESPN
It should be fun to watch the Chargers’ offenseat work all season. The opener should be allabout LaDainian Tomlinson and Darren Sprolesin the rushing attack against the Silver and Black.Oakland will try to counter on the ground withsecond-year sparkplug Darren McFadden.
— Vinnie Iyer 
CINEMA
The Longest Yard 
9 p.m., CMT
In case the Bills-Patriots game gets out of hand, here’s the perfect filler before you investin the nightcap game. Instead of the AdamSandler remake of this movie in 2005, you’ll beseeing the 1974 original that stars Burt Reynolds.Prison inmate Paul Crewe (Reynolds) is asked puttogether a team of fellow prisoners and then loseagainst an assembled team of guards in exchangefor an early release. Old school footballers RayNitschke and Joe Kapp are among the guest stars.
