Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable. Many of last season’s top performers appear on this list, but keep in mind there’s usually a major bust or two, likely due to the heavy workload of the position causing a hangover effect.
The Dallas Cowboys enter the 2014 NFL season with one of the worst defenses in the NFL. This means that they have to keep their opponents off the field to win, making DeMarco Murray the most important player on the team.
One team could get their season back on track but the Cowboys have some significant injuries to their offense and special teams. The Panthers are hurting too, but after week off they are focused and ready to go.
The Cowboys seemed to have found their running game against the defensive minded Ravens and against the Panthers this Sunday it could open new vistas in the passing game now that Tony Romo has found his favorite target. Dallas also has a solid defense and that could create problems for a Carolina team in desperate need of a victory.
The Panthers season comes down to this: They have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel and the only way to get back on solid footing is to beat the Cowboys on Sunday. But Dallas is on notice from their owner to shape up or ship out and they need a win just to get back to the .500 mark.
The NFL season is in full swing as we finish up week 12 and head into week 13. Fantasy football’s regular season, however, is coming to an end. With week 13 being the end of the regular season in most fantasy leagues, I wanted to go over the fantasy all-star team for 2011. Let’s take a look at who has been an absolute beast this year as we all get ready for the fantasy playoffs.
Sunday’s Panther loss has been the worst of the season. They looked bad on offense, defense and special teams. In fact, they looked bad in pretty much every aspect of the game. With all of this coming off their bye week, it was more than disappointing.
