Start: Week 8


First, here’s last week’s results (5-5 last week, 35-29 for the season):


Jeff Garcia –W-316 yds, 2 TDs, 10 rush yds, 2 FumL

Eli Manning –L-146 yds, 2 TDs, 1 INT

Running Backs:

Kevin Jones –W-76 yds, 34 rec yds, 1 TD

Marshawn Lynch –W-84 yds, 14 rec yds, 1 TD

Wide Receivers:

Reggie Brown –L-44 yds, 12 rush yds

Marty Booker –L-28 yds

Amani Toomer –W-36 yds, 1 TD

Tight Ends:

Marcedes Lewis –L-13 yds


Seattle – W-6 pts, 7 sacks, 2 FumR, 3 INTs


Jay Feeley –L-4 pts

On to Week 7:


Brian Griese – He had three costly INTs in his first meeting with the Lions, but he’s since performed well against better defenses than the Lions have. He’ll redeem himself in the grudge match.

Brett Favre – Favre has a history of coming up big on Monday, plus the Broncos have been giving up a lot of points (granted, they’ve played a bunch of good offenses).

Running Backs:

Earnest Graham – The Jags are really going to struggle without David Garrard, so Tampa Bay should have lots of good starting field position.
Maurice Jones-Drew – With David Garrard out, the Jags will have to rely even more on the running game.

Wide Receivers:

Lee Evans – Don’t give up on the guy quite yet; he had a decent game the last time he played against the Jets, and two of his three last games have been solid.

Donald Driver – Driver hasn’t produced much lately, but that’s partly because Brett Favre has been off his game. Expect better from both on Monday.

Ike Hilliard – What does a guy have to do to get noticed? Over the last four games, Hilliard has had 28 catches for 323 yards.

Tight Ends:

Vernon Davis – It will be his second game back from injury, and QB Alex Smith is expected to return as the starter.


Cleveland – The Browns hardly have a mighty D, but they face a Rams team that has scored seven points or fewer in four of the last five games.


Shaun Suisham – The Redskins have generally been in close, low-scoring games. The FG opportunities should be there.
