 Well, you know therest. The more thingsstay the same.
With leaves changing daily during the Autumn months, it’seasy to think about this time of  year and changes. But, as thetrade of Randy Moss this week proved,change cansometimes only restore orderand restore what we know tobeultimately true. Randy Moss is a Viking and always will be. Alabama isthe top dog in college footballas it’s been since the outset of the 2009 season. LSU headcoach Les Miles can bungle theend of a close game more thananyone I’ve ever seen. Thosethings don’t change and willnever change.But, as the calendar flips over toanother weekend, the intriguein the Parity League

October 10, 2010 - Fox 12 PM CST Vegas Says: Houston -3/47.5
 When the Giants have the ball 
...
 The Giants are a running team no matter what their passing statslooked like last year. This year, the Giants have only been average running the ball until last week whenthey had a strong performance on the ground against the Bears. The Giants have a terrific deep threat in
Hakeem Nicks
and another in
Mario Manningham 
and
Steve Smith 
can handle the short tointermediate routes. While the Giants have offensive balance and the ability to move the ball, they haveturned it over 13 times in four games including atleast 3 times in each of their games.
Eli Manning
  goes into this game knowing that Nicks is a threat vs. the Texans secondary so watch for some long balls.
 When the Texans have the ball 
...
 The Texansare the best running team in the league and theGiants have given up 160 yards rushing to both theColts and Titans this year. While the Giants aren’tterrible against the run, they can be run on. Thekey for the Texans is going to be running thefootball and getting up on the Giants early becauseif the Texans try to throw it around too much, they are going to put their offensive line in a tough spotagainst the pass rush of the Giants. I
Andre Johnson 
doesn’t play, look for the Giants to crowd the lineof scrimmage and refuse to let
Arian Foster
beat them since the Giants secondary has allowed 148 yardspassing or less in 3 of their 4 games.
Prediction 
:
 
 The Texans will be a better team with
Brian Cushing
 back and one of the things that he will help with is the ability to rushthe passer. If the Texans get after
Eli Manning
effectively, the Giants won’t be able to score with the Texans over the course of the game.
Last Meeting: NY Giants - 14 vs. Houston - 10 (11/5/2006)
Fantasy Scoop
 
If you are still starting 
Owen Daniels
, I can’thelp you.
Andre Johnson 
is a gametimedecision, but if he goes, you almost have tostart him.
Arian Foster
is obviously a go, butI would give a very average rating for
AhmadBradshaw 
.
Hakeem Nicks
and
SteveSmith 
are starts, but not
Kevin Walter
or
 Jacoby Jones
.

 When the Titans have the ball 
...
 The Titans are realizing slowly but surely that things are going to goquite as easily for
Chris Johnson 
this year as last. Headed into the game, CJ is averaging less than 4 ypc while
 Javon Ringer
is averaging over 7 ypc. If the Titans don’t run the ball successfully against theCowboys, they have to depend on
Vince Young
to move it through the air and I don’t see that happening against the Cowboys 3
-
4 front. We could see the old VY who scrambles out of the pocket and tries tomake things happen with his feet and that might be a good thing for the Titans since DEs
Anthony Spencer
and
DeMarcus Ware
will heat thepocket up.
 When the Cowboys have the ball 
...
 The Titans defensive front is better this year than last,but they are still reliant upon their LBs to have good games in order to pick the defense up. TheCowboys are coming off of their best offensiveperformance of the year vs. the Texans and if they are finally turning the corner with their offense,then the Titans will be in trouble. The Titansdefense broke down last year because they couldn’trush the passer and if they don’t pressure
Tony Romo
, he will light the Titans up with
Miles Austin 
and
Dez Bryant
doing most of the damage. We will see if the bye week has the Cowboys ready to build on what we saw from them in week 3.
Prediction 
:
 
If Dallas doesn’t come in with a strong first quarter oreven first half, then I don’t know what they did in the bye week becausethey had the additional time to figure out what they were doing wrong as well as how to exploit the Titans. Cowboys’ recovery is under way.
Fantasy Scoop
 
I know you hate doing it, but you have to give
Marion Barber
a look as an average RB3option but
Felix Jones
is also going to be getting more carries so beware.
Tony Romo
  gets the start here and I actually think that
VY 
might be a decent option this week if youare very week at QB. Sit
Kenny Britt
this week.
