Two rookie quarterbacks are the headliners of a game that has all the makings of a shootout.Cleveland Browns (1-5): Brandon Weeden and the Cleveland Browns finally got the monkey off their back and got their first win of the season.Trent Richardson is dealing with a rib injury but is expected to play with a protective vest on. If he can not go, Montario Hardesty is the one who will get the bulk of the carries.Josh Gordon has become a reliable deep threat for Brandon Weeden and has scored three touchdowns in the last two games.Be careful with your expectations though as he still only has 12 receptions on the season with just 26 targets.Greg Little is suffering from a serious case of drop-itis.Good starts: Trent RichardsonMiddle of the road: Josh GordonBad starts: Greg Little, Brandon Weeden Indianapolis Colts (2-3): Andrew Luck has been anything but shy and has more than 40 passing attempts in every game but one this season. Luck also returns home where he is a completely different player.Luck at home has a 6:2 TD:INT ratio and a 1:5 ratio on the road. A very friendly match-up this week makes Luck a good start.Vick Ballard will get his second start in the place of injured Donald Brown against a soft run defense as the Browns give up 131 yards per game on the ground.Reggie Wayne is having a monster year and is the first person that Andrew Luck looks at when he drops back. A must start every week.Donnie Avery and T.Y. Hilton both see the field plenty and have been getting an almost equal amount of targets. At this point it is almost a pick and hope your right approach with them. My hunch is leaning toward Hilton this week.Coby Fleener hasn't been as productive as many hoped but is still a guy to keep your eye on for a few more weeks.Good starts: Andrew Luck, Reggie WayneMiddle of the road: Donnie Avery, T.Y. Hilton, Vick BallardBad starts: Coby Fleener
