Eagles AT Giants
Philly's playoff hopes don't just rest on the arm of Jeff Garcia. The QB seems
to have tabbed Brown as his man, finding him for two TDs in three games and 152
yards over the last two. Brown scored a touchdown against New York in Week 2
and leads the team with seven for the season.
Panthers VS. Steelers
Monitor Jake Delhomme. If he's a no-go, consider picking up Carter. Even with
Steve Smith and Keyshawn Johnson sharing reps, Carter was backup QB Chris
Weinke's favorite target on Sunday, despite a dropped deep ball. In that game
against the Giants, Carter logged eight catches and 144 yards, plus a TD.
Giants VS. Eagles
The volatile wideout has caught at least one TD in each of his last four games,
the longest streak of his career. He'll likely extend it against Philly, which
he riddled for 114 yards and a game-winning overtime TD in Week 2. In his only
previous home game against the Eagles, Plax was spectacular: 113 yards and a
Steelers AT Panthers
This has been the season of Miller Lite. Expected to have a breakout year,
2005's rookie revelation has produced just 356 yards and four TDs. But facing
the Carolina defense may be the perfect tonic. The Panthers could be without
three injured cornerbacks. Even when healthy, Carolina has allowed six TDs to
opposing tight ends this year.
Falcons VS. Cowboys
The old man needs just two points to become the NFL's alltime leading scorer
and only one field goal to set the record for most in league history. But
that's not why he's listed here. With running backs Warrick Dunn and Jerious
Norwood both nursing injuries, Andersen will get his kicks in the red zone.
The last time these teams met, San Francisco rolled up 416 yards, did not throw
an interception and permitted one sack. But this time the Niners travel to
noisy Qwest Field, where the Seahawks' D customarily toughens up: Seattle has
allowed nearly a touchdown less at home than on the road.
