KeithyP's Favs of the week
Fav QB Matchup - Michael Vick @ Lions - 103 Rush yards, 16 for 24 Passing and a TD.  Kevin Kolb failed his concussion test, Vick will start.
Vick was extremely impressive in his first start in over 2 years.  He didn't do much with his feet, as he only rushed 4 times for 40 yards but he was 21/34 passing for 284 yards and 2 TDs.  He connected with Desean Jackson for several deep bombs in this game.

Fav RB Matchup - Jamaal Charles @ Browns - 92 Yards on 11 Carries against Chargers Week1
Thomas Jones doubled Charles' carries.  Jones got 22 carries and Charles just like last week only had 11 carries, and racked up a total of 76 yards for the game.

Fav WR Matchup - Roddy White vs. Cardinals - 23 Targets last week, 13 Catches
Matt Ryan threw it 12 more times White's way and they connected for 7 catches 78 yards and a TD.

Fav TE Matchup - Jermaine Gresham vs Ravens - Swagger.
3 Catches (5 targets) for 15 yards - The rookie did not have a good matchup going up against the physical Ravens defense and he didn't get much done here only having 3 catches for 15 yards.

Fav DEF Matchup - Saints @ 49ers - If the Seahawks can shut them down, the Saints can.

KeithyP's Upset of the Week(0-1)
Rams over @ Raiders

LiLbRo's Favs of the week
Fav QB Matchup - Phillip Rivers vs. Jaguars - 22/39 298 yards, 2 TDs 0INTs in a loss to the Chiefs.
Rivers was very effective against the Jags defense.  He finished 22/29 for 334 yards with 3 TDs and 2 picks.  He led the Chargers to an easy 38-13 win and spread the ball around to 8 different receivers and connected twice with Gates for a TD.

Fav RB Matchup - Steven Jackson @ Raiders - Chris Johnson showed that the Raiders were still weak against the run and this is a great matchup for the physical Steven Jackson.
Jackson had over 100 total yards in the first quarter but was very quiet the rest of the way.  Jackson had 19 carries for 75 yards and 4 catches for 50 yards.

Fav WR Matchup - Andre Johnson @ Redskins - Was quiet in week 1, look for more production out of the pass game as the Redskins should somewhat hold Foster in check.
Johnson made up for his fantasy owners who have him against the Redskins.  Johnson had a monster game with 12 catches for 158 yards and a TD to tie the game late in the 4th to send the game into OT.

Fav TE Matchup - Visanthe Shiancoe vs. Dolphins - Looked sharp against the Saints and Favre found him for a TD.
6 catches (9 targets) 86 yards.  - Another rough week for the Vikings as they didn't get much done on offense but once again Favre was comfortable throwing to Shiancoe as he hauled in 6 catches.

Fav DEF Matchup - Green Bay Packers vs. Bills - Very aggressive defense against a extremley weak offense.
7 Pts Allowed, 2 INTs, 4 Sacks - Didn't let the Bills do much on offense as expected.  Sacked Trent Edwards 4 times, and forced two turnovers.  A very solid day for the defense.
