Scale 'em back
QB Russell Wilson. As much as I like Russell Wilson, I'm a bit concerned after last week's performance against the Arizona Cardinals. The mystique of playing in Seattle against Wilson, who was undefeated at his home stadium until last week, is no longer there. Meanwhile, the St. Louis Rams are getting better week after week and are aiming to finish .500. Don't look at the schedule and see StL and think "piece of cake." It wont' be.
QB Andy Dalton. He's been spectacular as of late, and while the Bengals technically have an outside shot at getting a first-round bye with a victory - and would probably love to eliminate the Super Bowl Champion Ravens from the playoffs (where, if they lost, they'd likely face them again next week) - I just don't trust Dalton in a clutch situation. This is a playoff game for Baltimore, and they'll bring their best effort.
RB Knowshon Moreno. You're going to start him if you have him, and you should. It's a great match-up against the Raiders and he's having a career year, plus the Broncos are still playing for homefield advantage. But even in meaningful games in recent weeks, it's seemed like his workload is shrinking. If this turns into a blow-out - and it could - Moreno could end up ceding carries to Monte Ball so Moreno is fresh for the playoffs.
WR Dwayne Bowe. He's hurt. His team isn't playing for anything. And if for some reason they leave him in there, he'll be catching passes from whoever Alex Smith's back-up is (I'm not even going to look it up, because if he can't beat out Alex Smith, it's not worth knowing his name.)
WR Emmanuel Sander. Scoring in 4 of his past 5 games, Sanders is dealing with a knee injury and, while he's been useful because of his touchdowns, he's been held to under 53 yards receiving in 6 of his past 7.
TE Andrew Quarless. He had consecutive games of 6 catches for 66 yards and a score before a 1-for-19 outing last week with Matt Flynn at the helm. But who knows what kind of chemistry he'll have with Aaron Rodgers?
