Answers for TEN/MIA, WAS/HOU & BAL/CLE

Tennessee at Miami 1:00 p.m.

Tennessee looked much better against Miami than it did against the Chargers or the Jets.  QB Kerry Collins had a good game, but he is not a good start in any game as he is always on the cusp of giving way to Vince Young, who didn't play this week after making appearences in each of the first two games.

The Dolphins trio of Culpepper/Chambers/Brown, or should I say Huge Disappointment, Not Quite As Huge Disappointment and Disappointment?

The Dolphins do not look capable of being a double-digit favorite again.


Washington at Houston 1:00 p.m.

The Redskins got healthy versus the Mario Williams-led Texans defense.  Mark Brunnell completed 24 of 27 passes for 261 yards and a TD, and RB Clinton Portis has all the owners who saw him slide into the 2nd and 3rd believing they got the bargain of their draft.

Unfortunately, the good game by Brunnell did not translate into a good fantasy performance by any of his receivers - not including Portis who had a 74-yd reception.

QB David Carr had a 2 TD game and that is all anyone could ask if they were forced into starting him during the bye week.  

He only three for 208 yards on 19 completions, but he did send 11 of them to Andre Johnson for 152 yards.  Unfortunately, the TDs went to  the 100% unowned Mark Bruner and Owen Daniels.

RB Ron Dayne led the RBBC with 14/58.  Sam Gado got one carry and Wali Lundy got none and went whee, whee, whee all the way home!

If that distribution holds, then Ron Dayne will see himslef on select fantasy rosters throughout the bye week stretch.


Baltimore at Cleveland 4:05 p.m.

Todd Heap was active, and unlike Matt Jones, he caught five passes for a measly 36 yards, but there was a TD grab in there.  This is the typical "good" TE performance - fewer than 10 points even with a TD.

The Baltimore defense shut down the Cleveland rushing attack.  Reuben Droughns was inactive and his replacement,Jason Wright, was an ineffective 15/31.  However, the defense couldn't stop QB Charlie Frye who three for 298 yards and scored on a one-yard run.

RB Jamal Lewis had 86 yards rushing but did not score a touchdown.  2003 feels like it never occurred.  And, if not for that season, Lewis would have no expectations at all.  

For the Browns, WR Braylon Edwards had his second consectutive 100+ yards receiving game.  He is a must-grab.

TE Kellen Winslow caught seven passes for 92 yards - 9 points!
