Inside the numbers:

  • The Packers are the latest team to try to survive the Lester’s Top-ranked Defense Curse. It’s where teams with seemingly good match-ups go sour. Without Frank Gore, the Niners should be vulnerable on the road.
  • The Seahawks, on paper, have one of the more favorable match-ups as they’re taking on Carolina at home.
  • The Rams aren’t playing at home, but Arizona is struggling to put points on the board.
  • The Bears have one of the league’s top defenses. Calvin Johnson worries me a little though. Detroit basically won the first game so there could be extra motivation there.
  • The Saints’ defense is right up there with their offense.
  • Big Ben is expected to play against the Ravens, but if they can knock him out of the game, the Steelers will be in trouble.
