We are in week 8 of filling in our 2011 Panini NFL Sticker Collection Album and the football season. Our weekly players last week delivered as we thought with Tim Tebow struggling at first but coming through big at the end for the win, Carson Palmer providing the train wreck with 3 interceptions in his Raiders debut and Tony Gonzalez had 5 receptions, moving him to number two on the all-time career leader list behind Jerry Rice.
Here are the three players to watch this week
Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans, who has been struggling this season, finds himself up against an Indianapolis Colts defense that has had just as many problems. Sunday will provide Johnson one of the best opportunities to bounce back, perhaps earning some of that monster holdout contract money he is receiving.
A.J. Green is one of two Rookies that has fast tracked on the Cincinnati Bengals. Receiving passes from the other Rookie, Andy Dalton, in a weaken Seattle Seahawks secondary, Green could be in for a big day.
Vernon Davis and his team, the San Francisco 49ers, are going up against a Cleveland Browns defense that can be stingy at times. While the Browns have been good at containing Wide Receivers, they have had problems with shutting down Tight Ends.
