KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Alex Smith is still winning in red. He's just doing it for the Chiefs these days.

Mike Wallace is finally happy in Miami, Anquan Boldin is making everyone happy in San Francisco, and that's just the start of the new faces in new places making a splash this NFL season.

Wes Welker went from hauling in passes from Tom Brady in New England to doing the same from Peyton Manning in Denver. Steven Jackson's legs are churning in Atlanta, Darrelle Revis is defending passes in Tampa Bay and Elvis Dumervil is putting heat on quarterbacks for Baltimore after a bizarre end to his time with the Broncos.

Dumervil said he feels ``amazing'' in his new home. Lots of other high-profile players feel the same way.
