Matchups with Matt

Now that we have taken an extensive look at the games, I figured I would share what I am watching for this week.

Detroit Lions at Buffalo Bills

Can Jahvid Best get going against the Bills 32nd ranked run defense? His turf toe issue is getting better and the Lions might want to lean on him a little more since QB Shaun Hill is back, but isn’t quite 100% over his broken forearm. I think he may have his first big game since he went off on the Eagles in Week Two. Also, with WR Roscoe Parrish out for the season, I’ll be interested to see if the Bills use their RBs more in the passing game, specifically rookie C.J. Spiller.

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears

If you’ve held on to Sidney Rice or picked him up off waivers, this could be the week you finally get to see him on the field.

I use the word “massive” a lot because it describes most of the articles we do. I really want to continue to try to scale back our word counts because I […]

  • Just missed it: Week 14 December 12, 2013
    I have been a little behind lately spending more time on more important things, and I missed two weeks ago also due to the holiday, but here are raw notes showing all if not most of Week 14’s “Just missed it” plays. If you’re looking for perfect grammar and punctuation, don’t read this. WR Mike Brown drops a TD pass on opening drive of game. Maurice Jones-Dr […]

  • Just missed it: Week Eleven November 21, 2013
    Here is another batch of just missed it type plays from Week 11. These are raw notes, so they were not edited for quality control. Brandon Pettigrew lets one of his fingertips for a potential TD over the middle, continues to have suspect hands Heath Miller dropped one in end zone going to ground Bell tackled inside the 1-yard line on pass from Big Ben Big Be […]
