Today's TV games

October 21, 2007|By CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Cardinals (3-3) @ Redskins (3-2)

Time, TV -- 1 p.m., chs. 45, 5

Fantasy factor -- Cardinals RB Edgerrin James, averaging 4.0 yards per carry, has four rushing TDs. Redskins QB Jason Campbell has completed 66.7 percent of his passes with three TDs and one interception in his past two games.

The buzz -- Unless Kurt Warner's left elbow heals quickly, the Cardinals are expected to go with Tim Rattay at quarterback. That's not enough firepower to win on the road against Washington.

Bears (2-4) @ Eagles (2-3)

Time, TV -- 4:15 p.m., Ch. 45

Fantasy factor -- Bears QB Brian Griese has seven TD passes vs. six interceptions. Eagles RB Brian Westbrook has accounted for 670 yards from scrimmage and three TDs, figures that should grow considering how the Bears are playing defense.

The buzz -- A trip to Philadelphia is no way for the Bears to recover from a tough home loss to Minnesota, and you've got to wonder about Chicago's emotional and physical energy. In their last home game, the Eagles blasted the Lions, 56-21.

Steelers (4-1) @ Broncos (2-3)

Time, TV -- 8:15 p.m., chs. 11, 4

Fantasy factor -- Steelers RB Willie Parker is averaging 4.2 yards per carry but has just one rushing TD. It's a similar story with Broncos RB Travis Henry (4.9 yards, one TD).

The buzz -- Both teams come in rested, and the Broncos need to get things straight after three consecutive losses. The Steelers are having a solid season.
