First, here’s last week’s results (6-3 last week, 32-23 for the season):
Derek Anderson –W-364 yds, 1 INT, 21 rush yds
Jon Kitna –L-252 yds, 2 TDs, 5 rush yds
Edgerrin James –W-15 yds, 1 TD
Ryan Grant –W-55 yds, 37 rec yds
Steve Smith (Panthers) –W-15 yds
Chris Chambers –W-59 yds
Eric Johnson –W-27 yds
Detroit Lions –L-7 pts, 5 sacks, 2 FumR, 1 INT, 1 TD
Phil Dawson –L-7 pts
On to week 10:
Donovan McNabb – This could be the game that pulls apart the Eagles for the rest of the season.
Derek Anderson – Anderson had a career-high 364 yards last week, but he had no TDs and one INT to go with it. It will only get worse against that tough Pittsburgh D.
Steven Jackson – The Rams plan to limit his touches in week 10. The Saints will probably help out that plan by jumping on them early and basically taking away their running game anyway.
Maurice Jones-Drew – It’s going to be hard for Mojo to find any of his against that Titans D.
Roy Williams – He hasn’t scored a TD in the last 5 games. Neither he nor any one of the other Detroit WRs has been stepping up as a clear #1 lately.
Chris Chambers – I’ll keep listing him until people stop starting him.
Dallas Clark – Clark is expected to play after his concussion, but his numbers have been flat lately.
Buffalo – It may be tempting to play any defense against an 0-8 team, but the Dolphins actually rank better than the Bills in both passing and rushing yardage. The same is true for their defense, as well.
Sebastian Janikowski – 10/15 FGs sounds bad, but he only has those poor numbers because he’s missed four from 50-plus yards. The problem is that those are about the only chances he’s getting.Sports With Issa Asad
