In Week 8 of the college football season, NFL Draft prospects are already off to a good start.
On Thursday night, North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron looked like a first-round pick against Miami, hauling in eight catches for 199 yards and a touchdown. Friday night featured a Louisville/Central Florida game that went down to the wire. Although UCF won, Teddy Bridgewater of the Cardinals Cheap Jerseys NHL had another standout game to further cement himself as next year’s top quarterback prospect.
Needless to say, today’s schedule of games has a lot to live up to. Look for a preview of Clemson/Florida State from Matthew Fairburn on the site a little later. For now, here are the games I’ll be keying on today:
With starting quarterback E.J. Manuel out until sometime around Thanksgiving, the Bills have turned to Thad Lewis, who was taking snaps on the practice squad a few weeks ago. Lewis was admirable last week in the loss to the Bengals, putting up 216 yards, two touchdowns and no picks. If he is to continue that success, he’ll need support from a running game — led by the two-headed attack of C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson — that ranks third in the league and will play an important role in keeping defenses honest.
The Bills defensive front has been as good as the Dolphins were supposed to be. Led by the duo of Mario Williams (eight sacks) and Marcell Dareus (four sacks), Buffalo ranks third in the NFL in getting to the quarterback. That pressure has led to the league’s highest interception total (10), though teams are still putting up a solid 271 yards per game through the air. The unit’s biggest Cheap Jerseys MLB With Free Shipping improvement needs to come in run defense — their 124 rushing yards allowed per game ranks 28th in the league.
