In an effort to help you set the best lineup possible, NFL Network’s stats guru David Carabello and I have found a few trends you might want to consider for Week 2.
Jerricho Cotchery, WR, N.Y. Jets: Cotchery has recorded 6 receptions in four consecutive games against the Patriots.
Frank Gore, RB, San Francisco: Gore has a combined 616 scrimmage yards in his last four games against the Seahawks.
Larry Johnson, RB, Kansas City: Johnson has rushed for 100-plus yards in four consecutive games and five of his last seven against the Raiders.
Jamal Lewis, RB, Cleveland: Lewis rushed for a combined 70 yards and 0 touchdowns against the Steelers last season. He also has just one 100-yard performance in 14 career games against them.
Carson Palmer, QB, Cincinnati: Outside of Week 17 last season, Palmer has thrown for a combined 838 yards with 2 touchdowns and 5 interceptions in his last five games.
Tony Romo, QB, Dallas: Romo is 1-2 in his career as a starter vs. the Eagles. He’s thrown for 1 touchdown with 5 interceptions in those contests.
LaDainian Tomlinson, RB, San Diego: Tomlinson has rushed for 100-plus yards in three of his last four games with 7 scores against the Broncos.
Roddy White, WR, Atlanta: White has 11 catches for 98 yards in his last five games against the Buccaneers. He has never caught a touchdown against them, either.
