Questions for WAS/NYG

Washington at N.Y. Giants 1:00 p.m.

The Redskins are coming off consecutive 30+ points weeks.  Is it realistic to expect that to continue?

QB Mark Brunnell has had two good games in a row, but his season-to-date stats are entirely reliant on last week's three completions to WR Santana Moss.  Those comprise 75% of Brunnell's 2006 TD passes.  If the Giants focus on Moss, can Brunnell adjust or will he revert to the form he showed in Weeks One & Two?

WR Santana Moss broke into the Top 10 in receiving yards and lept to the top of TD receptions with his big week.  Will he have another good receiving week against a Giants pass defesne that had allowed 281 ypg in its three games prior to their bye?

RB Clinton Portis is back to Top 5 status with 4 TDs in his first two games.  His shoulder injury still lurks in the back of mind.

The Giants were embarrassed in Week Three.  Does their defense rebound to the Top 10 status it had prior to the actual games being played?

Pre-season Top 5 pick, RB Tiki Barber, has yet to score a TD.  Along with Green Bay's Vernand Morency and Indy's Top 10 WRs, Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne, I'd bet Barber gets one score this week.

With 23 touches per game, he's got to cross the goal line.  Doesn't he?  Is one TD in four games too much to ask of a Top 5 selection?
