But as has become customary, it's a Hurricanes prospect doing scoring the big goals to give Canada the lead. We'll enjoy this for a little, but our guys know the mission isn't over. Canada put a scare in the unbeaten Americans (7-0) during the closing seconds of the OT but couldn't slip the puck past Parsons, who finished with 46 saves.

There were good division races - the weird, gnarly AFC West perhaps the best - and surprise teams like the Cowboys, Raiders, and Falcons that were entertaining and legitimately good against a backdrop of teams that were mostly just goofing around.
Special Teams: Auburn . It isn't often that a kicker has the choice of leaving college early for the National Football League, but Auburn's Daniel Carlson is that good.
