KeithyP's Favs of the Week

Fav QB Matchup - Eli Manning @ Texans - Houston secondary is statistically the worst in the league allowing 337 yards a game through the air.  They have given up 8 TDs with only 2 interceptions.  If the Giants receivers can actually hold on to the ball, instead of popping it up in the air for the defense to grab, Eli should have a nice day.
27 of 42 for 297 Yards with 3 TDs and 2 INTs

Fav RB Matchup - Thomas Jones/Jamaal Charles @ Colts- Indy allows 150 yards a game on the ground and the Chiefs running game this year has been great, gaining 160 yards on average in their first 3 contests.  Jones will wear down this speedy Colts team, and Charles will bust out for big runs in the change of pace.
Thomas Jones - 8 Carries for 19 Yards / Jamaal Charles - 16 Carries for 87 Yards, 3 Catches for 14 Yards.

Fav WR Matchup - Donald Driver vs Redskins - Washington's pass defense is terrible and with only 8 sacks in 4 games, Aaron Rodgers should sit comfortable in the pocket.  The 35 year old Driver should have time to run his routes and gain good yardage.  The Packers will score points and Driver should see lots of targets.
4 Catches for 58 Yards.

Fav TE Matchup - Zach Miller vs Chargers - San Diego has been great against the pass this year, and have 15 sacks.  But Gradkowski found Miller 11 times in week 4 for 122 yards and a score against the Texans.  I see lots of targets headed Miller's way.
6 Catches for 62 Yards and a TD.

Fav DEF Matchup - Jets vs Vikings - New York looked like Superbowl contenders against the Bills in week 4 and the run defense is living up to the hype.  Favre has not found any real rhythm with Minnesota's offense since Sidney Rice has been on the sidelines and AP has been taking a lot of carries.  The Vikings are at the bottom in passing yards and near the top in rushing, and that is not a good matchup against a Jets Defense who is tops at stopping the run and just average at stopping the pass.
4 Sack, 1 INT for a TD, 20 points allowed

KeithyP's Upset of the Week(1-3)
Giants @ Texans

LiLbRo's Favs of the Week

Fav QB Matchup - Drew Brees @ Cardinals - The Cards don't cover the pass very well, and Drew Brees has yet to get it going this year.  2 out of 4 games this year Brees has only 1 TD and the Saints have scored less than 20 points in both those games, with their season high only 25.  I think this is the week Brees and the Saints offense will explode for a huge game, as they should have the ball a lot as the Cards offense shouldn't do much with Max Hall most likely starting at QB.  Also the Cards have given up 41 points twice this season.
24 of 39 for 294 Yards with 2 TDs and 3 INTs.

Fav RB Matchup -Maurice Jones-Drew @ Bills - The Bills in 4 games have given up a leagues worst 696 yards on the ground and 7 TDs.  Both LT (133yards, 2 TDs) and Shonn Greene (117yards) rushed for over 1000 yards last week.  Jones-Drew finally came alive last week against the Colts and should continue to roll right through this Bills defense.
19 Carries for 84 Yards, 2 Catches for 9 Yards.

Fav WR Matchup -Hakeem Nicks @ Texans - Houston is dead last in pass defense, and Nicks is a beast.  Houston cant defend the pass and Nicks should be unstoppable and Eli will take advantage of that.  This one could be a shoot out which means a lot of passing and Nicks catches just about everything thrown his way.
12 Catches for 130 Yards and 2 TDs.

Fav TE Matchup - Antonio Gates @ Raiders - Gates was my Fav TE last week and he came through with 2 TDs.  He has gotten it done every week so far and I don't see him slowing down against the Raiders in week 5.  The Raiders have given up TDs to TE's the past two weeks, and Gates should find the end zone for a 5th straight week as he and Phillip Rivers have been a deadly connection this year.  Gates will continue to be my Fav of the week until he proves me wrong.
5 Catches for 92 Yards and a TD.
Fav DEF Matchup - Ravens vs. Broncos - The Ravens have only allowed 4 TDs through 4 games this year and only 1 have come on the ground.  If Moreno is out again this week then it might be a long day for Orton and the Broncos offense Sunday.  The Broncos squeaked out a win against the Titans in week 4 despite only rushing for 19 yards.  Orton completed 35 of 50 passes but if he has to throw the ball 50 times against the Ravens he wont have much success.  They only have 7 sacks but they will have a field day rushing Orton and forcing turnovers.
17 Points Allowed, 1 Fumble Recovery and 1 Sack.
