3. Dallas Clark vs. Kansas City

4. Tony Gonzalez at Cleveland

5. Jermichael Finley at Washington

6. Chris Cooley vs. Green Bay

7. Brent Celek at San Francisco

8. Jason Witten vs.  Tennessee

Inside the numbers

  • Antonio Gates has six TDs already and has scored in every game this year.
  • Dustin Keller has five TDs in his last three games.
  • Dallas Clark is averaging seven receptions per game.
  • Kevin Kolb struggled to get the ball to his WRs against Washington. He has a good rapport with Brent Celek and will use him as a safety net.
  • Brandon Pettigrew is averaging seven catches per game since Week 2.
  • Benjamin Watson has 11 catches for 107 yards and a score over the past two weeks.
