"Buffalo's defense has the league's best defense on runs around left end (0.8 yards per carry) but the league's worst defense on runs around right end (8.7 yards per carry). "

Uh....wow.

1: fortunately for buff, WAS' right side is where the OL injuries have hit worst. They'll likely have UDFA rookie Stephon Heyer starting at RT (although he's looked decent).

WAS offense is 22nd on runs off right end, 15th over RT, 10th up the gut, 4th over LT and 14th around LE.

Interesting matchup

"Good week to play Dave Rayner on your fantasy team?"

Didn't the Chiefs sign John Carney to replace Rayner?

"Of course, the odds of this game being late and close are pretty slim."

Nice.

Post 3:

Correct.

Rayner was cut.

Guess GB picked the right guy. (Rayner competed with Mason Crosby for the kicking job in training camp)

41 passes over the middle to Donald Driver? That's 41 chances to get decapitated if your QB floats one. Shows the kind of trust there is between Driver and Fav-rah.

Adam Archuleta has tackles this year? I'll be damned.
