AFC Players on the Rise and Fall

AFC East: Rising

Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB Buffalo Bills

Fitzpatrick has played well since replacing Trent Edwards in Week 3. He has not led the Bills to a win, but his play has been encouraging. He now has seven touchdowns and only two interceptions.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB New England Patriots

The double named RB has provided the Patriots with a reliable ground game in their past two outings. Green-Ellis has scored one touchdown in each of the Patriots last two wins.

Falling

CJ Spiller, RB Buffalo Bills

What many hoped to be a breakout season for the rookie, Spiller has disappointed. He has scored zero touchdowns. It also doesn’t help that the Bills don’t trust him with the ball more.

Miami Dolphins defense

What looked so promising in Week 1 and 2 seemed like a fluke. After allowing only 10 points in each of the first two games, Miami’s defense gave up 31 and 41 in the past two weeks.

AFC North: Rising

Rashard Mendenhall, RB Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers were fine without Ben Roethlisberger and Mendenhall was the reason why. He has not turned the ball over and has scored a total of four touchdowns while averaging 102.8 yards a game.

Terrell Owens, WR Cincinnati Bengals

T.O. has been playing great. It’s a shame that Carson Palmer and Chad Ochocinco can’t keep up. Wasn’t Owens supposed to be the weak link in the trio?

Falling

Carson Palmer, QB Cincinnati Bengals

With the addition of Owens, Palmer was supposed to return to Pro Bowl form. Instead, the Bengals offense has struggled. He has seven touchdowns, but has thrown six interceptions.

Chad Ochocino, WR Cincinnati Bengals

Only one touchdown catch in five games. Drop him if he’s on your fantasy team. But be sure to follow him on Twitter.

AFC South: Rising

David Garrard, QB Jacksonville Jaguars

He was spectacular in the Jaguars past two wins. He has a total of six touchdowns (five passing, one rushing) and only one interception. When Garrard throws for two touchdowns or more the Jaguars win.

Chris Hope, S Tennessee Titans

As the last line of defense, Hope has been doing his best. His tackles have been rising ever since Week 1.

Chris Johnson, RB Tennessee Titans

Whenever he scores a touchdown and rushes for 100-plus yards, the Titans win.
That’s how important Johnson is to their success. Tennessee will go where
Johnson takes them.

Falling

Joseph Addai, RB Indianapolis Colts

How does playing with Peyton Manning make your stats even worse? Addai has not brought anything to the table this season.

AFC West: Rising

Kansas City D

The Chiefs D looks like the real deal. Its only lull came against the Colts, and even they didn’t make it to 20 points.

Kyle Orton, QB Denver Broncos

He’s having a career year and without him the Broncos would be nowhere.

Falling

Bruce Gradkowski, QB Oakland Raiders

He isn’t that better than Jason Campbell. For every one touchdown he throws, he commits one interception. So basically the touchdown is nil considering the Raiders defense.

Josh McDaniels, Head coach Denver Broncos

And he’s a defensive minded coach right?

Broncos Running Game

Denver is dead last in rushing with an average of 51.8 yards a game. All is left of the wonderful running game are the highlights of Terrell Davis breaking tackles 12 years ago.

Chargers Special Teams

They can’t prevent a touchdown to save Norv Turner’s job. Certainly the most horrible special teams in the league
