Other News And Notes

* The Green Bay Packers will be without Aaron Rodgers again this week, and you should bench any Packers players outside of WR Jordy Nelson and RB Eddie Lacy.

* Bengals WR A.J. Green is averaging  121 yards and one TD vs. NFC North teams. The Minnesota Vikings have the worst pas defense of any team from that division.

* The Redskins placed TE Jordan Reed on IR, and backup Fred Davis caught a 23-yard TD in his place last week. He’s a desperation play vs. the Cowboys this week.

* Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (1,343 rushing yard) faces the NFL’s worst run defense in the Chicago Bears.

* The Giants placed WR Victor Cruz on IR, which is even more reason to not play QB Eli Manning this week, even against a bad Lions secondary. Hakeem Nicks is an emergency WR play this week.

* The Bills will be without QB E.J. Manuel and WR Stevie Johnson, which actually makes WR Robert Woods a sneaky start this week.

* 49ers TE Vernon Davis has notched a touchdown in five straight games

* The New Orleans Saints are averaging 25.6 points per game this year, but that number drops to 18.4 in games played on the road.

* The Panthers defense is allowing just 14.9 points per contest. They’ve also allowed just 14 passing touchdowns this year.

* The Colts have allowed 201 QB pressures, the fourth-most of any team, an NFL-leading 51 QB hits and are going against a Chiefs defense third in the league with 43 sacks.
