Troy Smith starts at quarterback for the Ravens. He may play as much as three quarters. “Head coach John Harbaugh knows that Kyle Boller is terrible. He will give Smith every chance to win the job,” says NFL betting guru Mike Godsey of GodsTips. Godsey seems to imply a lot of passing will be done by the normally ball control Ravens.

However Smith has been terrible so far completing just 8-of-17 for no touchdowns and one pick.  Rams star running back Steven Jackson is still a holdout. Though reports say that may end soon, it is extremely unlikely he would play Saturday.

Wide receiver Torry Holt is questionable because of a tight back. The Rams best OL Orlando Pace is slowed by a sore shoulder and will be limited.

New Orleans TE Jeremy Shockey is practicing and may get his first action of the preseason. The Bengals are without their top four receivers Chad Johnson, T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Andre Caldwell head the list.


Tavaris Jackson is questionable for Minnesota. The middling starting quarterback would likely see limited action anyway because of a knee injury. The Steelers are still without backup QB Charlie Batch.


Bucs starting quarterback Jeff Garcia will make his preseason debut. Jacksonville has won the last four preseason games.


Brett Favre will start for the Jets but head coach Eric Mangini has not specified how much he will play. WR Laveranues Coles is questionable for the Jets.


Browns starting quarterback Derek Anderson is out, so Brady Quinn gets the start for the Browns.  America‘s Greatest sports service, GodsTips has a season high four NFL Wise Guy plays. Wise Guy plays from Joe Duffy’s GodsTips are widely accepted by high rollers, bookmakers, linesmakers, and fellow handicappers as the biggest play in the handicapping abyss. This is just fact.  Watch the sweep clinch the fourth winning week in as many tries in football this year. Click now to purchase


Miami star running back Ronnie Brown is very doubtful.


Raiders coach Lane Kiffin is making it no secret that he will throw a lot tonight. The Raiders ground game is pretty proven, but the baby-faced coach wants to see what strong armed QB JaMarcus Russell has has.

Arizona starting QB Matt Leinart will play into the second quarter, then be replaced by Kurt Warner. Arizona is without FS Antrel Rolle and TE Ben Patrick.



The Bills will be without RB Willis McGahee. Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is out. Stevie Vincent Senior Analyst of says that Manning may now miss the start of the season, hence “We expect Jim Sorgi to air it out as there is a very good chance that he will get playing time this regular season.”

Buffalo starting QB Trent Edwards, who suffered a contusion on his quadriceps, is out. The Colts two best defensive players Bob Sanders and Dwight Freeney are both expected to play for the first time this preseason.  



Seattle starting quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is doubtful. They are also without their top two receivers Bobby Engram and Deion Branch and are adjusting to the departure or running back Shaun Alexander.

Backup Seneca Wallace has been limited, so third stringer Charlie Frye has been taking many of the snaps. Though Chargers TE Antonio Gates returned to practice, he is not expected to play.
