Giants at home getting the Browns

Cardinals on the road against the Rams

The Giants are finally getting their CB's back but the Browns have perhaps more weapons than the Rams? However, the Rams don't have a rookie QB but do have a banged up offensive line that could allow the Cardinals to get some sacks. Would sure like to see Dockett play this Thursday.

Depends a bit on how your league scores. How big of a scorring opportunity is holding the other team down to little or no points?

I think the Rams will score on the Cards. It should not be a 30-30 type game, but I could easily see a 20-17 game with the cards sqeaking by.

The Giants have a better chance of holding the browns to a really low score.

Other than the points scored issue I like the Cardinals D.

Good point: Pretty much every item is (1) pt...forced fumbles, interceptions, etc.

Here is the scoring for limiting points scored:

0 - 1 PA = 10 points
2 - 3 PA = 8 points
4 - 10 PA = 5 points
11 - 13 PA = 3 points
14 - 15 PA = 2 points
