* Peyton Manning and Garrard could both be busy in what should be a shootout.
* Seattle is a tough place to play and I can see the Seahawks focusing most of their defensive energy on stopping Michael Turner – leaving Ryan free to chuck it to Jenkins, White and Gonzalez all day.
* The Giants “contained” Vick somewhat in their last meeting but he still got stats.
* Jon Kitna could be huge Sunday. Wash is so bad anymore and even though they’ll be up for this rivalry game, Dallas should have their way with the Wash defense.
* Brady would be higher because he’s been on fire, but the Packers give up the fewest points per game in the NFL – and they have a defense that is just unpredictable enough to make this game more interesting that most would think.
* I took a flier on Kerry Collins a couple weeks ago and it backfired. I’ve got him back in there now because Kenny Britt is back and healthy and I can see Tenn playing tough out of respect for their coach, whom I don’t think will be around after the season ends.
* It’s interesting – for all the talk about Buffalo and their lousy QB situation earlier in the year, Ryan Fitzpatrick has done OK (21 TDs, 11 ints, 85 QB rating). Though his sub-60 completion percentage needs some help.
* If Shaun Hill does play, he could be a quiet sleeper this week in TB. Detroit has a tiny swagger suddenly after taking down the Packers and crushing their playoff hopes.
* I considered putting Matt Flynn higher. He looked a little overwhelmed last week because the situation may have surprised him some. But he’s a guy who in preseason, can usually step in and run the offense with surprising command.
