This was a great week to play against

Mike Vick, QB, Eagles – Got hammered on his way to the end zone and left the game after passing for just 49 yards and running for 17 more.

Beanie Wells and Tim Hightower, RBs, Cardinals – Just 49 combined yards on the day for the backfield committee.
Cedric Benson, RB, Bengals – Registered 60 yards on the ground, with no receptions.
Chris Johnson, RB, Titans – When he rushes for a mediocre 53 yards, catches 3 passes for 11 more, and coughs up a fumble, it’s a great week to face him.

Randy Moss, WR, Patriots – Held catchless by the Dolphins.
Mike Sims-Walker, WR, Jaguars – Blanked during his team’s upset victory over the Colts.

Legedu Naanee, WR, Chargers – Missed out on the fun with a 4-yard catch.
Louis Murphy, WR, Raiders – Managed a single 5-yard catch.
Lee Evans, WR, Bills – No Darrelle Revis? No problem for the Jets' secondary, as Evans produced one 6-yard catch.
Steve Smith, WR, Panthers – Left with a high ankle sprain after catching just 2 balls for 11 yards.
Jacoby Jones, WR, Texans – A calf injury contributed to his failure to soar in AJ’s absence, with one 12-yard reception.
Johnny Knox and Devin Hester, WRs, Bears – Suffered with their QBs, pulling in just 4 catches for 42 yards total.
Mike Wallace and Hines Ward, WRs, Steelers – Held to two catches apiece, with 24 and 14 yards, respectively.

Owen Daniels, TE, Texans – Upstaged by fellow TE Joel Dreesen, with 8 yards on a single reception.

Colts defense/special teams – Did absolutely nothing. No sacks, no turnovers and gave up 31 points to a team that scored 3 points last week. Yeah, I picked them up in one league just for this “primo” matchup…
