Answers for BUF/CHI & CLE/CAR

Buffalo at Chicago 1:00 p.m.

WR Lee Evans had a good fantasy game - 94 yards and a TD.  This was surprising as QB JP Losman had a game that I feared would occur - 3 INTS - and only completed 14 passes for 115 yards.

RB Willis McGahee did as well as anyone could have expected if he thought the Bears were a buzzsaw game for the Bills - 50 yards rushing and 15 yards receiving with no fumbles for 6 points.

The Bills shutdown the GRex attack by limiting it to 182 yards.  Despite that, Bomb Berrian caught a 62-yard pass amongst his four receptions and 97 yards with a TD.  He's a legit WR2 right now.

The glass was either half-full (109 yards) or half-empty (0 TDs with back-up Cedric Benson having two) for RB Thomas Jones.

The 15 points from yardage help salve some, and I say some, of the wounds from the TD split.  Benson ended with 14 carries and 48 yards.

The spectre of a RBBC has returned just in time for Halloween!


Cleveland at Carolina 1:00 p.m.

Reuben Droughns almost followed up last week's 100-yard effort with an acceptable one.  He got 68 yards (his 2nd best effort this season!), but without a TD, it wasn't good enough.

I wondered about the production of WR Braylon Edwards if QB Charlie Frye had fewer than 200 yards, and Frye answered with a 26 for 43 effort with 173 yards!

With just 27 yards, Edwards can't be considered that automatic WR2.  However, with 8 receptions, TE Kellen Winslow has solidfied his status as a Top TE.

Carolina Can.  Not. Be. Stopped when WR Steve Smith plays as the Panthers ran their record to 3-0 with him.

Jack Delhomme's game was pedestrian (20/29/170/1), but $20 million man DeShaun Foster went for 106 yards on 24 carries, and, pending the status of rookie RB D'Angelo Williams' ankle, could be a legit RB2 going forward.
