Washington-redskins
Rex Grossman (credits below) Start ‘EmRex Grossman (Washington Redskins, Week 16: Minnesota Vikings) If it’s a good matchup, Grossman has shown he can take advantage of it.  And Minnesota is about as good as matchups get for quarterbacks.  The Vikings have allowed at least two touchdown passes in all but one week since week five and 25 total touchdown passes over that nine game span. LeGarrette Blount (Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Week 16: @ Carolina Panthers) The key to Blount having a good fantasy day is simply having his team stay in the game.  Blount’s four worst games of the season have been those where Tampa lost by two touchdowns or more with Blount getting about ten carries.  Any time his carry totals have gotten deeper into the double digits, he’s been just fine.  Although Carolina blew Tampa out the last time they played, Carolina’s defense is bad enough that the Bucs should be able to put up points with Josh Freeman at QB as opposed to Josh Johnson.  And if Raheem Morris ...

Losing Luck Is Best For Colts

This is what a ‘sellout’ looks like on Christmas Eve in D.C.

Officially, the Washington Redskins sold out their 368th consecutive home game on Sunday, extending an NFL record. More officially, the NFL's sellout streaks are a bunch of nonsense. FedEx Field has capacity for 82,000 fans. Announced attendance on Sunday was 68,370, with actual attendance far lower still. Look at that picture. It was taken midway through the first quarter...

First Quarter Impressions

AP Image Much like last week, the Redskins turned the ball over early, but not because of aggressive play call down the field.  Instead, it came via a breakdown in protection that led to a sack-fumble.  The defense had a stellar stand, yielding two yard, but the Vikings were already in field goal range. Vikings kicker Ryan Longwell doesn’t miss those: 3-0. Running back Evan Royster...
