QUARTERBACK

MATT SCHAUB
Texans AT Browns
How much does Andre Johnson, who returned on Sunday from a knee sprain, mean tohis QB? This year he's caught four of Schaub's seven TD passes, even though hehas played in only three games. The Browns have given up a league-high 23passing TDs.

ELI MANNING
Giants VS. Vikings
Manning has TD passes in six straight home games, and the Vikings' defense hasallowed 300 passing yards in six of 10 games this year.

MATTHASSELBECK
Seahawks AT Rams
He has thrown for multiple TDs in five straight games, and the Rams haveallowed two or more passing TDs in three of the last four games.

RUNNING BACK

MAURICEMORRIS
Seahawks AT Rams
The backup did a good imitation of Shaun Alexander on Sunday, with 87 yards anda touchdown against Chicago. The likeness should carry over to this divisiongame against the Rams, who once again have a bottom-third run defense.

PRIESTHOLMES
Chiefs VS. Raiders
At the goal line Oakland's defense is a revolving door that even the likes ofTatum Bell and Cecil Sapp have passed through.

RON DAYNE
Texans AT Browns
Ahman Green's sub will have his second 100-yard day of '07 against a Clevelanddefense that has allowed eight.

CEDRICBENSON
Bears VS. Broncos
He earned a second (or third) chance by breaking a long TD at Seattle. He'llthrive against Denver's leaky line.

KICKER

NATE KAEDING
Chargers VS. Ravens
Opponents have crossed the Ravens' 30-yard line 12 times in the last two weeksand had to settle for field goals 10 times.

SEBASTIANJANIKOWSKI
Raiders AT Chiefs
His 12 attempts since Week 8 are the most in any four-game stretch since hisrookie season.

DEFENSE / SPECIALTEAMS

GIANTS VS.Vikings
With Minnesota's green QB, Tarvaris Jackson, facing New York's blitzes, expectsacks and interceptions aplenty.

CHARGERS VS.Ravens
Kyle Boller's two interceptions and a fumble in his start for Steve McNairsuggests that Baltimore's turnover problems will continue.

WIDE RECEIVER

D.J. HACKETT
Seahawks AT Rams
He has caught a touchdown in all three games since his return in Week 9from a high ankle sprain. He'll keep the streak going in what should be ahigh-scoring contest in St. Louis's dome.

CHRIS HENRY
Bengals VS. Titans
The Titans have an excellent defense, but no one has the depth to handleCincy's third receiver. Henry, who has 180 yards in two games since hisreturn from suspension, would start on at least 25 other teams.

DREW CARTER
Panthers VS. Saints
He follows up a season-high 132 yards against Green Bay by facing cornerbackJason David, who has been torched for a league-worst nine TDs this season.

TIGHT END

GREG OLSEN
Bears VS. Broncos
Rex Grossman's TE of choice had seven grabs, to Desmond Clark's one, againstSeattle.

ERIC JOHNSON
Saints AT Panthers
He has been thrown to 17 times (with 11 catches) in his last two games againstCarolina.

HE'S A GREAT PLANB . . .

Chester Taylor

THE VIKINGS neverthought they'd miss Adrian Peterson so little. Taylor, his replacement, had 164yards and three TDs against Oakland. P.S.: Think Minnesota's line is anygood?
