NFL Week 9 Winners and Losers

Aaron NaglerNFL National Lead WriterNovember 4, 2012

If you own the Chicago Bears defense on your fantasy team, you are no doubt rejoicing. This team continues to assault the record books with creating turnovers and putting points on the scoreboard. They are a huge Week 9 winner.

While you're at it, you may as well be doing the Dougie, as in Doug Martin. It's hard to imagine this rookie wasn't taken until the 31st overall pick. He is that good. Can you say 251 yards and four touchdowns for Martin? The Bucs offense is officially rolling, and they are huge Week 9 winners.

Speaking of winners, Andrew Luck is all that. He has more than exceeded expectations, as he set the record for most passing yards by a rookie (recently held by Cam Newton) against a tough Dolphins defense.

On the loser side, it could have been Andy Dalton's big day, as the Bengals hung tough with the Broncos for more than three quarters. But, Dalton couldn't match Peyton Manning, as he threw a critical interception to Champ Bailey midway through the fourth quarter to ice the game for the Broncos and send the Bengals a 3-5 record.

News flash, RGIII and the Redskins offense may have been figured out. It's been two weeks in a row it has been stopped. First by a tough Steelers D last week, and this week, the terrible Panthers D.
