– “The Cincinnati Bengals are [the second best team in the AFC] because of their defense. They force turnovers and make [offenses] do things they don’t want to do. The sky is the limit for this team when [quarterback] Andy Dalton gets it right.” – Deion Sanders on the Cincinnati Bengals and quarterback Andy Dalton. Deion believes the Denver Broncos are the best team in the AFC.
– “The San Francisco 49ers fooled us. This team was so good a year ago and they surprised us. [This season,] we really thought they would just take everything to the next level, especially with that tease in Week 1.” – Deion Sanders on the San Francisco 49ers
– “It seems as if the 49ers have digressed, especially in the running game. They won’t make a commitment to the run. They have put the onus on Colin Kaepernick’s shoulder and I don’t know if he can carry the load at this point in his career.” – Deion Sanders on the San Francisco 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick
– “Defenses are doing a good job defending the width of the field [against the 49ers offense.] Now, without Michael Crabtree, defenses don’t have to defend the length of the field because they have no one to stretch the field.” – LaDainian Tomlinson on the San Francisco 49ers offense who lost wide receiver Michael Crabtree to injury in the offseason
– “Rex Ryan has done a wonderful job with the defense, but Geno Smith is winning games.” – Michael Irvin on the New York Jets, head coach Rex Ryan and quarterback Geno Smith

– “That is pretty good what Ryan Tannehill is doing with this team so soon. I am still trying to figure out how they are pulling out these games.” – Marshall Faulk on quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins who are 3-0
– “The chemistry Tony Romo and Dez Bryant have in the red-zone is undeniable.” – Deion Sanders on Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant
– “Ozzie Newsome hit a home run by drafting Bernard Pierce. He is a great compliment to Ray Rice.” – Marshall Faulk on Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and running back Bernard Pierce
