Week 9 Injury Report

KeithyP's Favs of the Week
Fav QB Matchup - Aaron Rodgers vs Cowboys - Just take a look at the last few games the Cowboys have played.  Giants and Jaguars, yes the Jaguars killed the boys in the air.  Rodgers is set to blow up after being shut down by the Jets. 
27 completions for 289 yards and 3 TDs
Fav RB Matchup - LaDainian Tomlinson @ Lions - Detroit allows 5 yards a carry and 130 yards a game.  Perfect matchup for LT and the Jets.  The Jets got shut out and shut down last week, but DO NOT expect that to happen again this season. 
15 carries for 55 yards 6 catches for 47 yards
Fav WR Matchup - Roddy White vs Bucs - Tampa Bay is 3rd in the league against the pass, however, they have allowed 12 TDs, and Roddy White is yet to have under 69 yards and less than 5 catches a game.  Plus the Falcons are coming off a BYE.
4 receptions for 49 yards (left game during 1st qtr returned after half)
Fav TE Matchup - Jason Witten @ Packers - Witten had his best game of the season week 8 with Jon Kitna taking snaps(10 catches for 97 yards and a score) and had 95 yards on 9 receptions and a score week 7 when Kitna filled in for the injured Tony Romo.  The Packers have a great defense but the Cowboys will probably throw the ball 50 times this game.
3 recetions for 44 yardes
Fav DEF Matchup - Patriots @ Browns - The Patriots have done a good job containing the run allowing just over 100 yards a game on the ground.  The Browns have no passing attack and have a rookie QB, Colt McCoy, going up against a Bill Belichick defense.  Expect the Pats to blow out the Browns by confusing the young QB with different defensive schemes.
34 point allowed 1 fumble recovery 0 sack 0 INTs
KeithyP's Upset of the Week(3-5)
Chiefs @ Raiders

LiLbRo's Favs of the Week
Fav QB Matchup - Eli Manning @ Seahawks - Seattle gives up 260 yards per game through the air and only have 6 picks, but they rank in the top 10 against the run.  With that said, I still think Bradshaw and Jacobs will have success but it will only make it easier for Eli to hook up with his main guys Nicks, Smith and Manningham.  Seattle looked awful against the Raiders and it only gets tougher with Eli and company coming into town with a well balanced offense.
21 completions for 290 yards and 3 TDs
Fav RB Matchup - LaSean McCoy vs. Colts - Theres a lot of factors in favor of McCoy to be successful here against the Colts.  The Colts give up over 130 yards on the ground and if anyone saw Arian Foster run against them in two games this year they now how easy it is to run.  With Desean Jackson possible out again this week, and Vick coming back from injury as well as the Eagles wanting to keep Peyton off the field, means a lot of touches for McCoy.
16 carries for 95 yards
Fav WR Matchup - Greg Jennings vs. Cowboys - The Cowboys are a lost cause at this point in the season and the defense showed it last week.  David Garrard was nearly perfect throwing 4 tds, and the success that Mike Sims-Walker had should be encouraging for Jennings.  If the Dallas Defense fails to show up again then it could be a lot of passing (since GB doesnt run much to begin) and Jennings has the speed to catch a couple bombs here.
7 recpetions for 80 yards 1 TD
Fav TE Matchup - Antonio Gates @ Texans - Well I'm back on the Gates bandwagon. Averaging 82 yards per game which includes the 12 yard game where he got hurt, the 6-4 260lbs Gates has scored in 7 out of 8 games and has 2 multiple TD games.  Its clear teams cant cover him, and he now faces his easiest matchup of the year.  Houston is giving up a leagues worst 299 yards per game through the air and has allowed 16 TDs.  Another 6 catch 100+ yard 2TD game would not surprise me at all here.
Did not play
Fav DEF Matchup - Vikings vs. Cardinals - The Cards are -9 in turnovers this year with their 12 INTs and 11 fumbles.  Yes their offense came on last week against TB but they still managed to turn the ball over 4 times which led to 2 defensive TDs.  The Vikings are top 10 in defense so dont expect the Cards to score much especially if they find themselves turning the ball over in this one.
24 points allowed(1 kickoff return, 1 fumble recovery) 6 sacks
