Pats vs Pitt

SLEEPERS

QBs:
David Garrard - Great matchup - he's averaged 20 FPG against Texans in his last two games
Shaun Hill - no pass rush for the Bills and CBs match up poorly against Calvin
Ryan Fitzpatrick - continues to play well and matchup is very beatable

RBs:
Cedric Benson - Colts giving up 10th most FPG to RBs in their last four games
Thomas Jones - Very hard to sit him as Broncos giving up 39 FPG to RBs in their last four games
LaGarette Blount - Panthers can be run on and this looks like a game in which he could get a ton of carries

WRs:
Steve Johnson - Gets it done every week as his QB locks on him and this matchup is beatable
Mike Williams
Mario Manningham - Cowboy secondary struggling and he put up 14/200/2 against them in his last three games but most importantly could have to start for Smith who was hurt Thursday

TEs:
Jacob Tamme - He has 17 catches in his last two games
Marcedes Lewis - A very good matchup as Texans give up 8th most FPG to the TE in their last four games
Brandon Pettigrew - Bills have struggled against the TE all year and give up 2nd most FPG to the TE in their last four games

Zona vs Seattle
KC vs Denver
