    • This week more than ever, it's prudent to play the match-ups; at this point, the numbers aren't skewed since they've played almost the entire season, and at this point the numbers won't lie, that's how they've performed basically all year. Go on nfl.com and scroll over the "teams" option on the tool-bar. It will give you a list of the teams, and from there you can look up their statistics on offense and on defense for both passing and running. Using this tool, it becomes clear to use McNabb because he goes against the Saints defense that's ranked 30th against the pass, whereas the Raiders are ranked 7th against the pass. McNabb should have a field day against the 3rd-weakest secondary in the league, especially in a dome where wind and weather won't be an issue.
