I like Washington this week if only for the reason that Romo is broken and we may well see the TO machine known as John Kitna.
Second I like Arizona against the Seahawks. Hell any Def against the seahawks is a good matchup.

Defensive Scoring--Points against, Turnovers & Sacks + Return TDs

Arizona @ Seattle. Seahawks have given up the most points to defenses through the first 2 weeks.
San Fran @ Cinn. Bengals are a young team but haven't turned the ball over yet this season but given up 6 sacks
Hou @ NO. 1st big test for Texans defense
Tenn vs Den. Titans D has been playing well these first 2 games
Wash @ Dal. Getting sacks & creating TOs. Cowboys have a lot of injuries going into this week
Clev vs Mia. Dolphins have given up 6 sacks and a couple of TOs



1. Cleveland Browns V. MIA
Bend but don't break struck week 2, expect more of the same as the Browns send Dolphins further into oblivion. They're going to give up some points, but they'll hold up in the red zone and will make a couple of big plays. Haden vs. Marshall is the matchup everyone will be talking about, but Reggie Bush is the Dolphins X factor. If they're going to keep pace in this game it will be because of Bush, the Browns don't have anyone to match up with him, they just have to make sure they keep him in front of them and force others to score touchdowns.

2. Tennessee Titans V. DEN
With Derrick Morgan back this defense could have a nice day.

3. San Francisco 49ers V. CIN
This defense is the bright spot on the team. Facing a rookie quarterback only makes them a better play in Week 3.

I'm going with Washington this week myself. The Dallas "O" is a mash unit. I don't see Romo going the distance if at all. They may start with no Romo, no Austin, and no Bryant. Good Luck!

They might have romo/bryant and kill. We don't know for sure yet.

Chalk me down for another vote for the Titans. As horrible as Seattle is, they play better at home and the 12th man will get into the heads of the Cards' D. That, and factor in that they've given up nearly 1,000 yards in just 2 weeks makes me lean towards the better D, the Titans.
