Antonio Gates at Kansas City Chiefs
Gates returned to the field after the Chargers' bye week to post five receptions for 54 yards and a score against the Jets defense. While this was an encouraging performance, it was also a positive that Gates came out of the game with no ill-effects to his foot and will hopefully practice later in the week.
While the Chiefs defense did a great job against the Raiders last week with six interceptions, expect Philip Rivers to target Gates and Vincent Jackson for big days, as this secondary can be gashed.
Besides, it’s not like Kyle Boller and Carson Palmer in his current situation were going to look good against any defense last week.
Jason Witten vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The veteran tight end only posted 35 yards against the Rams, but he did find the end zone once again. Witten’s lack of yardage had more to do with the Cowboys building up an early lead, and the record-setting day by rookie running back DeMarco Murray.
Expect Witten to post more yardage against an Eagles defense that gave Redskins tight end Fred Davis plenty of space to worth within their last game.
