New York Giants at Dallas: The Giants should be rested after a bye week, and the Cowboys appear to have fixed their issues in the defensive secondary, at least for the time being. After the Redskins and 49ers had success throwing deep against the Cowboys this season, Dallas limited Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb to 131 yards passing and no touchdowns in a 33-10 victory yesterday. The Giants enter the game as the league's top scoring offense, averaging 34 points per game.
Miami at Tampa Bay: The Buccaneers lost their first game of the season, 14-12, to the Jets and played without rookie running back sensation Carnell Williams. Williams missed the game with a sore hamstring but should be ready to face the Dolphins. The story line for Miami surrounds the return of running back Ricky Williams, who was suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
New England at Denver: The injury-plagued Patriots are coming off a 31-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in which place kicker Adam Vinatieri made a 29-yard field goal with 17 seconds to play. Quarterback Tom Brady marched New England from its 36 to the Atlanta 11 to set up the winning kick. The Broncos knocked the Redskins from the ranks of the undefeated with a 21-19 victory and have won four consecutive games.
