BEST PLAYER MATCHUP OF THE WEEK

Brandon Marshall, Broncos WR, vs. Patriots secondary Normally, all eyes are on Patriots WR Randy Moss on Monday nights. But Marshall, the league's leading receiver and next great one if he stays out of trouble, faces a New England secondary that gave up pass plays of 48, 49 and 59 yards and committed a 32-yard pass interference penalty in the end zone in last week's loss to San Diego.

COACHING MATCHUP OF THE WEEK

Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron vs. Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano Cameron was head coach of the Dolphins for one season. One miserable 1-15 season in which the only thing between him and the league's first 0-16 mark was a win over the Ravens. That was a year ago. Sparano took over this season and has already doubled Cameron's win total.

HERO OF THE WEEK

Eli Manning, QB, Giants Monday's 35-14 loss in Cleveland marked the fifth time Manning has thrown three or more interceptions in a game. The previous four times it happened, Manning played better and won the following week. He faces double-digit underdog San Francisco at home today. 

FANTASY PICKS

Looking at longshots LenDale White might get a couple of shorties today against soft KC. ... The Jets rush defense, while highly rated, still gives up a short rushing TD or three (Week 4) nearly every game. Start your favorite Raiders RB and take advantage. ... Seattle's a mess. Stay away from whomever the Seahawks start in Tampa. ... We could see Brad Johnson throwing for 200 yards and two touchdowns today. ... And don't be tempted by Cedric Benson or Shaun Alexander.
