We are in week 6 of filling in our 2011 Panini NFL Sticker Collection Album and the football season. Our weekly players last week put in respectable performances.
Here are the three players to watch this week
Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets has been seeing a lot of turf lately. With an offensive line that sorely missed Nick Mangold under center, defensive teams have been finding it easy to reach Sanchez. This week the Jets face off against the Miami Dolphins who have has their share of problems on defense. With a little less pressure, Sanchez should have enough time to find his talented group of receivers.
Steve Smith of the Carolina Panthers has averaged over 100 yards a game this season. Last week his production was slightly down against the New Orleans Saints, but look for him to rebound against the porous pass defense of the Atlanta Falcons.
Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys has not had the best start this season and you certainly would not think to pick him as someone to watch on a week when the Cowboys are in Foxboro to take on the Patriots. But you have to remember two things. 1 – While Tom Brady puts up monster numbers every week, the Patriots pass defense is the lowest ranking team in the NFL this year, giving up over 325 yards per game on average. 2 –One of the Cowboys star wide receivers, Miles Austin, returns back to action this week, so Romo should have enough targets to keep his numbers up.
