Monday 10/05 Quickie: Minnesota Mania,
Favre, Twins, Saints, Pats, Eli, LSU, More

Enjoy it, Minnesotans: Your position at the center of the sports universe starts now and lasts... oh, until the last out of Twins-Tigers tomorrow at the Metrodome.

If you can get past the Favre storyline (and that's a tall order), the Vikings-Packers game should be a pretty good one. (Would it be too much to ask for Percy Harvin to have an insane game?)

And I'm loving the idea of the Twins becoming the first team ever to win a division having been down 3 games with 4 to play in the regular season (although the "Game 163" is a bit of a cheat).

As I lead in today's SN column, the drama over the AL Central ends Tuesday night, because the winner presumably loses in the ALDS to the Yankees. (Then again, I presumed on Friday that there was no way the Twins were catching the Tigers.)

But for this small window, all eyes are on Minnesota.

More you'll find in today's column:

*NFC's Best: Saints
*AFC's Best: Steelers
*Fantasy studs: David Garrard Goodness!
*Must-track injury: Eli's heel
*Explain again why the Titans shouldn't start Vince Young?
*This past weekend's CFB slate? Relatively lame, as expected.
*Will Tebow play Saturday at LSU? As I'll argue all week: Won't matter.

And a lot more. Check out the complete column here. More later.
