Carson Palmer will be a hot commodity on the waiver wire this week after the Cincinnati Bengals traded him to the Oakland Raiders for a pair of high draft picks. I can't imagine that someone in your fantasy league already has Palmer on his or her roster...

Four NFL teams, four distinctly different situations, and one identical, well-worn audible:

The Ravens were on the brink of a historic upset.
Instead, they had to deal with one of the most heartbreaking defeats in their history.
