The Houston Texans are obviously without the services of receiver Andre Johnson again, but the big offensive absence could come in Tampa Bay, where running back LeGarrette Blount is out of the picture. Bad news for the Buccaneers, who face the New Orleans Saints a week after getting their clocks cleaned by the San Francisco 49ers. The New England Patriots wil have to deal with the Dallas Cowboys without stud linebacker Jerod Mayo; not the best thing for one of the worst defenses in the NFL.
Once again, our thanks to Brian McIntyre of Mac's Football Blog for the names!
