Inside the numbers:

  • Dallas has no heart. After manhandling the Jets, the Packers will bring it to the Cowboys.
  • Charlie Whitehurst is starting for the Seahawks. The Giants are licking their chops.
  • Derek Anderson is starting for the Cardinals this week.  For the second straight week I think a defense will step up with their back against the wall. I was WRONG with Dallas this week, but I think the Vikings have more heart.
  • Last week seemed like an ideal time for Carolina to show something against the Rams. They didn’t, and that only leads me to believe the Saints will have their way with them this week.
  • Detroit isn’t the pushover they once were. They won’t play put up huge numbers against the Jets, but they won’t get shut down either. I also think their defense will do decent this week.
  • Who would have thought the Bills defense would actually be a borderline starter? The way Jay Cutler gets sacked and throws picks though, it has become a reality.
