FANTASY FOOTBALL IN-SEASON FEATURES
||No team has turned the ball over more than KC, and the Chiefs have also allowed the second-most sacks. It's a turn-back-the-clock game to when the Ravens defense was outscoring the offense... only now the offense is really good, too.
||What happens when the team that's allowed the second-most sacks hosts the team that has the second most sacks? We're about to find out.
||You saw what the Bears D can do when they get pressure on the quarterback. The Jags have allowed 50% more sacks than the Cowboys; this should be interesting.
||Even money on the Texans sacking and picking multiple quarterbacks in this game. Yep, we're calling for it: Tebow Time.
||You saw what Minnesota's return game can do last week; now it's the vastly improved defense's turn against a Titans team that has served up more defensive scores than anyone else.
||The Bills are a very giving team--as in, they've given the ball away 11 times, third-most in the league. They call him Ryan Pickspatrick for a reason
||Here's a shot at redemption for the much-maligned Giants secondary: the Browns have thrown the second-most interceptions in the NFL.
||It's a bit of an indictment of the Steelers defense that against the turnover-prone Eagles they aren't ranked higher. Maybe the returning James Harrison and Troy Polamalu will prove us wrong.
||Seattle's underrated defense isn't quite as formidable on the road, but they should still give Cam Newton fits.
||Andrew Luck, meet Clay Mathews. Lather, rinse, repeat. And please, Clay, use some cream rinse on that mop.
||Cameron Wake against a banged-up Cincy Line that's allowed a dozen sacks already this season; would that make this a Wake up call?
||The Saints will get their points, but apparently one of Sean Payton's jobs was making sure Drew Brees threw to the guys in the same color uniform as him.
||Peyton's been picked more than usual this season, and nobody schemes for Peyton like Bill Belichick. Bet he didn't sleep at all this week.
||The Falcons rank second in fumble recoveries and third in interceptions, and now they get a shot at a rookie quarterback.
||Gone are the days where Philly blitzed on every play. Kind of miss those days... especially in a week where they face a Steelers' o-line that's giving up three sacks a game.
||The Bengals have recorded six sacks in back-to-back games--and one of those games was against RG3. Ryan Tannehill is athletic, too, but if RG3 can't escape the Bengals' pass rush...
||Interesting to see how the Rams' aggressive corners handle Larry Fitzgerald--and how Kevin Kolb handles the aggressive Rams' corners.
||Tom Brady was harassed by the Arizona pass rush, so you have to think Von Miller and Elvis Dumerville can get after him as well.
||It's a bit surprising the Niners have allowed a dozen sacks already this season. Time for that billion dollar Bills defensive line to start earning some of that coin.
||The Browns are surpringly in the top five in sacks; that's a stat that, between the shaky Giants' o-line and Eli's penchant for turnovers, might make things interesting.
||In this corner, a Redskins defense that has the second-most defensive touchdowns; in the other corner, a Falcons team that has turned the ball over just twice all year. Something's gotta give.
||No team has allowed fewer turnovers than the Texans; even if Darrelle Revis were healthy this wouldn't be a favorable matchup for the Jets D.
||It's a science experiment: the resistable force of a Jaguars defense that has the fewest sacks in the NFL against the movable objec of a Chicago offensive line that's allowed the second-most sacks in the league. Make sure to wear your safety glasses.
||Part of it is a Carolina defense that's generated just three turnovers; the rest is the painfully conservative Seahawks offense.
||It's a battle of the return games; sadly, the Lions aren't around this week to provide a clinic in how not to cover kicks.
||The Packers have had a bit of a problem keeping Aaron Rodgers upright; maybe it's an opportunity for Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney to hop in the wayback machine and meet at the quarterback.
||Surely there must be some way to motivate this defense. If only there were some sort of incentive system...
||The Chiefs have generated the fewest turnovers in the league, which in turn affords them few if any opportunities to score defensive fantasy points.
