NFL Week 9: Gameday predictions

  • Updated: November 3, 2007 - 3:19 PM

MATCHUP OF THE WEEK: PATRIOTS QB TOM BRADY VS. COLTS QB PEYTON MANNING

Considering the Patriots average 41.4 points per game while the Colts average 32, whichever quarterback has the ball at the end of the game probably will win. Manning praised Brady this week for adjusting so quickly to three new receivers -- Randy Moss, Wes Welker and Donte' Stallworth. Brady, who has 30 TD passes and just two interceptions, returned the kudos, even dropping in a compliment about Manning's second career as a TV pitchman. "He does everything well," Brady said. "Um ... he's a great actor. He can do it all. Can I act? You guys tell me. Probably not." (Mark Craig)

HERO OF THE WEEK: DREW BREES, SAINTS QB

Brees has his confidence back and will be facing a Jacksonville defense that's 19th against the pass. And while the Jaguars rank eighth in sacks per pass play, Brees has avoided being sacked in four consecutive games. (MC)

GOAT OF THE WEEK: TY LAW, CHIEFS CB

Law has 51 career interceptions, but he's also 33 years old. That's not a good age to be when covering Green Bay's young receivers James Jones and Greg Jennings, who are catching pinpoint deep passes from Brett Favre. (MC)

FANTASY PICKS: GAME OF THE MILLENNIUM SPECIAL EDITION

Do not continue reading if you do not want to know how that much-discussed Patriots-Colts game winds up. Joseph Addai is the hero, getting a season high in carries as the Colts grind it to keep the Patriots' machine off the field. He scores twice, and Dallas Clark gets one. Randy Moss? Shut out. Tom Brady? Nice game, but nothing like his first eight weeks. The Colts win 24-20 in what is simply just a good game. (Chris Carr)
