NFL WEEK 10, Scratches, Coverages, Storylines For Your 1 PM Games

Jacksonville (3-5) at Detroit (0-8), 1 pm. Daunte Culpepper will be getting the start at Ford Field today, less than his week after signing with the Lions as an insurance policy for Dan Orlovsky's thumb injury. That policy is already being cashed in, and this time we can't blame Matt Millen. The big story in Jacksonville has been Mike Peterson, who was sent home from practice earlier in the week. Peterson made the trip to Detroit, but was not activated for the game today. Week 10 Byes. If you're rooting for Cincinnati, Dallas, Tampa Bay, or Washington, take a breather. Your team is off this week. Coverage Maps. CBS, 1 pm games.. CBS, 4 pm games. Fox. Scratches and Storylines. Buffalo (5-3) at New England (5-3) Buffalo WR Josh Reed is out, as is New England's QB Matt Gutierez. Seattle (2-6) at Miami (4-4) Most people don't realize that when the Seahawks had that rash of injuries at wideout, I went to Seattle and made the team, signing a two-year deal. But I failed the physical. St. Louis (2-6) at New York Jets (5-3) Jim Haslett had his interim squad on a roll, but then Steven Jackson got hurt, and they've since lost two straight. Jackson is listed as doubtful today, but he almost certainly won't play. Brett Favre is listed as doubtful, but for an entirely different and much more frightening reason. Coles and Cotchery are both listed as probable, and should play. Green Bay (4-4) at Minnesota (4-4) Aaron Rodgers still is listed as probable...just like Brett Favre! New Orleans (4-4) at Atlanta (5-3) Jeremy Shockey will play, so he should be good for his requisite 3-7 drops today. Baltimore (5-3) at Houston (3-5) Fire up the Sage Rosenfels bandwagon again, because Matt Schaub is out with a knee injury. Willis McGahee is probable, but should go today. Tennessee (8-0) at Chicago (5-3) Your Kyles update: Chicago's Orton will be the emergency quarterback; Tennessee's Van Den Bocsh is out. Rex Grossman will have his gunslingin' cut out for him today in the spaceship that landed at Soldier Field.
