We are in week 4 of filling in our 2011 Panini NFL Sticker Collection Album and the football season. We’ve been on a roll with our weekly players to watch with last week’s players having some great games.
Here are the three players to watch this week
Matt Schaub of the Houston Texans has a tough matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, at least on paper. The Steel Curtain has put up some nice numbers on defense this year if you don’t count their first game of the season, against the Ravens. The Steelers were burned by Joe Flacco for 224 passing yards and 3 TDS. With the Texans run and gun offence, there is a good chance Schaub will meet or exceed those numbers.
Greg Olsen, who is now on the Carolina Panthers, will be returning to Chicago to take on his old team, the Bears. The Bears defensive weakness is in pass coverage of opposing Tight Ends. With Cam Newton on the other end of the ball, Olsen could see a lot of passes coming his way.
Hakeem Nicks of the New York Giants has an excellent matchup against the Arizona Cardinal defense, which is struggling to contain the pass. Nicks has not had a breakout game since week 1 against the Redskins and with the attention on Victor Cruz after the incredible game he had last week, Hicks could find himself in single coverage and blow the roof off of the University of Phoenix Stadium
