Air It Out

Ground and Pound

  • Ryan Mathews and Chris Ivory were the only Running Backs to rush for 100+ yards
  • 7 back rushed the ball at least 20 times, led by Ivory's 34
  • Matt Forte and Roy Helu rushed for 3 TDs each while Frank Gore got in the endzone twice
  • Jacquizz Rodgers led all RBs with 8 receptions

Is There A Doctor In the House?!

  • Jay Cutler left with a groin injury and will have an MRI done, so stay tuned.  Josh McCown did a decent job filling in going 14 for 20 for 204 and a TD.  The Chicago Bears are on a BYE Week 8 so there is plenty of time for this play out.  Cutler will miss at least 4 weeks
  • Sam Bradford tore his ACL and will be done for the season.  Kellen Clemens finished the game 2 of 4 for 19 yards.  St. Louis Rams should take NO part in yoru Week 8 fantasy football roster besides Zac StacyIs Tim Tebow a possible replacment?
  • Nick Foles left with a head injury and Matt Barkley looked awful going 11 for 20 with 3 INTs.  No Mike Vick or Foles Week 8 means do not play DeSean Jackson!
  • The Indianapolis Colts beat the Denver Broncos but lost Reggie Wayne to a right knee sprain.  BYE week coming for the Colts should give Wayne enough time to get healthy. Is Wayne's season over?!
  • The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost Doug Martin but X-Rays came back negative.  Tampa plays on Thursday Night Football Week 8 so Mike James is an option should Martin not suit up.  James rushed for 45 yards on 14 carries and caught 3 passes for 8 yards.  Martin could miss multiple weeks with a serious shoulder injury!
  • It is hard to imagine Jermichael Finley will play in Week 8 after being carted off the field
  • Arian Foster rushed the ball 4 times for 11 yards before he injured his hamstring.  Ben Tate carried the load the rest of the way gaining 50 yards on 15 carries.  Week 8 is a BYE week for the Texans so Foster should return.  Can't hurt to pick up Tate is available!
