ARI - Beanie Wells thinks he can handle full load soon
Arizona Cardinals RB Beanie Wells (toe) said he does not think it will take him long before he can handle a full workload even though he missed seven game with a toe injury. 'I think I’m capable of a full workload. The thing is, I always look at it like I’ve been playing football since I was six years old and that’s one thing I don’t forget how to do. I just take it for what it is. I’ve been practicing for two weeks, I’m feeling good and getting a lot of reps,' Wells said.
Atl vs TB Great weather and passing shouldbe just fine
WEATHER: Forecasts are calling for temperatures in the mid-60s with sunny skies. Winds will blow out of the NW at 6 mph.
ABOUT THE FALCONS (9-1): Atlanta became the first team to win when its quarterback throws five interceptions and no touchdowns since Green Bay accomplished the feat in 1967 with Bart Starr under center. Ryan has been superb over his last seven road games as he has thrown 19 touchdown passes and just three interceptions. The Falcons have struggled against the run, ranking 30th in the league with an average of 5.0 yards allowed per carry. Tony Gonzalez needs 12 receiving yards to become the eighth player - and first tight end - in NFL history to reach the 14,000-yard plateau.
ABOUT THE BUCCANEERS (6-4): Tampa Bay has scored a league-high 205 points over its last six games. Freeman has lost four of his last five games against Atlanta, throwing 10 interceptions and only six touchdown passes. In his last six overall contests, he is 5-1 with 16 TDs and only three picks. The Buccaneers own the league's best run defense with an average of 81.8 yards allowed. However, the team has surrendered an NFL-worst 312.6 passing yards.
CHI - WR Brandon Marshall to work with Alshon Jeffery
Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall plans to work with WR Alshon Jeffery this offseason to help Jeffery build up his strength. Marshall has shown a lot of interest in Jeffery's development.
Jeffery has incredible upside, but needs to stay healthy if he wants to play up to his potential. We like him paired up with QB Jay Cutler because of his size/speed combination and ability to make difficult catches seem routine.
