We had some pretty good picks for our players to watch last week with Cam Newton coming through big in his first regular season start and Peyton Hillis dealing with the first signs of the Madden Curse. As far as Troy Palomalu and the Steeler defense in concerned, who knew?
Here are three players to watch this week.
With the Minnesota Vikings' defense already hurting, Adrian Peterson will be looking to compensate by moving the ball against Tampa Bay, especially after the Vikings were held to 39 yards in the air last week. Falling just shy of 100 rushing yards last week, Peterson should be closer to 130 yards this week.
Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions took apart the Buccaneers secondary last week, throwing for 305 yards on 24 completions out of 33 attempts. He will look to repeat that kind of performance against the Kansas City Chiefs at home.
Beanie Wells of the Arizona Cardinals was the first to score in the Cards win over the Panthers accumulating a total of 90 rushing yards. This week Wells could see some bigger numbers as Arizona takes on the Washington Redskins.
