PLAY OF THE WEEK
Peyton Manning, Indianapolis at N.Y. Jets -- A tough Jacksonville defense limited Manning to 219 passing yards and one touchdown pass. Look for his numbers to go way up Sunday against the Jets, who rank 27th in the league in passing defense.
STARTING NOD -- Carson Palmer, Cincinnati vs. New England. Look for Palmer to build on last week's 193-yard, four-touchdown game at Pittsburgh.
OTHER SOLID OPTIONS -- Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia vs. Green Bay; Marc Bulger, St. Louis vs. Detroit; Jake Delhomme, Carolina vs. New Orleans.
STARTING NOD -- Brian Westbrook, Philadelphia vs. Green Bay. Westbrook has been one of the most productive backs with 420 total yards and a league-high five touchdowns.
OTHER SOLID OPTIONS -- Ronnie Brown, Miami at Houston; Warrick Dunn, Atlanta vs. Arizona; Larry Johnson, Kansas City vs. San Francisco.
TAKE A SEAT -- Ahman Green, Green Bay at Philadelphia; Corey Dillon, New England at Cincinnati; Thomas Jones, Chicago vs. Seattle.
STARTING NOD -- Jason Witten, Dallas at Tennessee. Going up against two solid defenses in the first two weeks, Witten combined for seven catches and 78 yards. Coming off a bye and playing a Titans defense that ranks 21st against the pass, he should have a breakout game.
TAKE A SEAT -- Chris Cooley, Washington vs. Jacksonville; Ben Troupe, Tennessee vs. Dallas; Jermaine Wiggins, Minnesota at Buffalo.
STARTING NOD -- Jeff Wilkins, St. Louis vs. Detroit. For the season, Wilkins has converted 11 of 13 field goals and is 2-for-2 on extra points.
STARTING NOD -- Philadelphia vs. Green Bay. Should the Eagles get off to another fast start, it could spell trouble for quarterback Brett Favre and the Packers' offense Monday night.
