Matt Hasselbeck: Coming off a strong Week 8 performance, Hasselbeck and the “Hawks welcome the Lions to
Alex Smith: The former number one overall pick pilots his third game as “new” starting QB of the Niners, in Week 9 in
Pierre Thomas: Thomas was able to get back on track last Monday Night, in a win against division rival
Ryan Grant: After a very disappointing defeat at the hands of Brett Favre and the Vikings, Grant and his Packers fly down to

Hakeem Nicks: Nicks had a hiccup in Week 8 in
Greg Olsen: Olsen and the Bears took care of
Fred Davis: The season-ending injury to Chris Cooley opened the door for second year USC product Fred Davis.
