Questions for MIN/BUF & NO/CAR

Minnesota at Buffalo 1:00 p.m.

Coming into the season, the Bills were considered the worst team the Vikings would face in their first four games.  Will this be the game RB Chester Taylor breaks out?  He gets almost all of the carries - 75 for him and 11 for the other three RBs!

The Bills lost a game last week that, statistically, they should have won.  Can JP Losman have another 300 yard game against a very good Vikings defense?

Can Roscoe Parrish follow-up last week's game with a similar one and find that Week Three performance backdated a "breakout"?

New Orleans at Carolina 1:00 p.m.

Does the pecking order of Colsten, Bush, and Horn hold in the receptions game?

After three games, Deuce McAllister is beginning to pull away, statistically, from Reggie Bush the RB - 53 carries to 34, 218 yds to 125 and 2 TD to none.  Does this continue?  Or does the opposing team adjust?

WR Steve Smith returned last week, and everything seemed brighter.  Was that an illusion based on playing a team that can't run and whose QB played with a broken spleen?

Which RB in the RBBC gets the carries this week?  Will the performance be good enough for fantasy teams to forget that this situation needs to be avoided until an injury occurs to one of the backs?

Update [2006-9-29 9:42:41 by Eric Hz]: From today's Star Tribune:

....coaching staffs prefer to grind it out with their starters rather than mix and match...Taylor has occasionally given way to Mewelde Moore, Artose Pinner and Ciatrick Fason, but he has carried the ball 87 percent of the time.
After Fake Teams pointed out the workload RB Chester Taylor has, the Strib writes something about it the next day. Coincidence?
