FANTASY FOOTBALL IN-SEASON FEATURES
||In the blue corner, Tony Romo--fresh off a five-pick game. In the red corner, Ed Reed--the best ballhawk of our generation. Who ya got?
||Only two teams have turned the ball over more than the Bills; only two teams have more sacks than the Cards. And when you put these two together... boom!
||The Lions have allowed twice as many return touchdowns as any other team. Think DJax is asking for a shot at punt returns?
||Here's hoping Aaron Rodgers is turning that State Farm paycheck right back into insurance, because J.J. Watt could destroy him this week.
||Sure, the Steelers are getting older--but it's not as if Matt Hasselbeck is exactly a spring chicken.
||Shockingly, no team has turned the ball over fewer times than the Raiders. A date in the Georgia Dome is bound to change that.
||The underrated Dolphins defense against a Rams' offense that just lost its best weapon; or, Cameron Wake against a St. Louis line serving up three sacks a game.
||Percy Harvin in the return game gets you in the top 10; if this is Kirk Cousins or Rex Grossman instead of RG3, Minny cracks the top 5.
||Andrew Luck doesn't play like a rookie, but that's still a questionable offensive line on the road against a pretty good defense.
||Michael Vick's inability to take care of the ball meets the disruptive force of Detroit's defensive line.
||Not that the Bucs are anything special defensively, but the Chiefs are averaging a shade under four turnovers a game.
||Cincy has given up 15 sacks and turned the ball over 10 times; the Browns, with 13 sacks and 10 forced turnovers, are poised to capitalize.
||San Fran still sports a great defense, and Eli Manning has been known to have a brain freeze or two. Plus, David Wilson is getting more touches; you know where that could lead.
||Rod Woodson and Clay Matthews have cause problems for plenty of talented offenses, so don't think the Texans will be completely immune.
||New England can bring the defensive pressure knowing they can score points while the Seattle offense is as dynamic as belly button lint.
||The Rams are playing like a Gregg Williams defense, sans Gregg Williams--and, we hope, the bounties.
||A Cincy defense that leads the league with 19 sacks; a Browns quarterback that leads the league with nine INTs. See where this is going?
||Peyton Manning has shaken off that early-season case of the picks, but San Diego's D could bring on a relapse.
||Alex Smith mixes bouts of competence with that deer-in-headlights look that, against the Giants' pressure, leads to defensive fantasy points.
||Philip Rivers can make some boneheaded plays from time to time--especially if Von Miller is breathing down his neck.
||The Colts still have Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney, and the Jets still have quarterback issues.
||Matchup to watch: Buffalo's billion-dollar defensive line against an Arizona defense that's been historically sieve-like of late and leads the NFL with 22 sacks allowed.
||Now that Christian Ponder has broken the interception seal, are more on the way?
||Sure, Seattle has the 12th Man, but really... is that going to bother Tom Brady?
||For a team that upgraded its secondary and supposedly has a fierce pass rush, nine sacks and one pick ain't gettin' it done.
||Maybe the Titans can get creative in the return game--and the way they're going, they'll have plenty of kick returns to get creative with.
||The Chiefs have generated four turnovers; the Bucs have turned the ball over five times. Yawn.
||No team has fewer sacks or fewer turnovers created than the Raiders. That doesn't bode well heading into the Georgia Dome.
