Seattle at New York Giants, Week 5

With the Seahawks still welcoming back their fleet of injured wide receivers, and the Giants playing without their malcontent army of one, one would expect a rather straight-ahead ground attack from both teams on Sunday. Seattle likely will see the...

Indianapolis at Houston, Week 5

San Diego at Miami, Week 5

Don't expect the Chargers to be at all surprised by the Dolphins' "Wildcat" offense, which so befuddled the Patriots on Sept. 21 in Miami's first win. San Diego spent all of last week preparing to face the Raiders, who also...

New England at San Francisco, Week 5

The Patriots may have a hard time winning nine games, much less a number that ends in "teen," if they don't find a way to apply more consistent pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Key Stat No. 1: Opposition quarterbacks have completed...
