This is the issue for Week 12 previews and Week 11 game coverage.

Filling the Bill

When the Bills made Willis McGahee a first-round draft pick, there were many skeptics. Considering the knee injury he was attempting to overcome, there were no promises he would regain top form. Less than two years later, McGahee is emerging as Buffalo’s top offensive weapon.

Depending on the defense

One of the few things that Redskins fans can smile about these days is Gregg Williams’ aggressive defense, which has been ranked near the top of the NFL for much of 2004.

Real or fraudulent?

A few teams appear to be locks for the playoffs. But what about that second tier of potential playoff teams? Are they contenders? Or are they pretenders?

Scouting the WR prospects

PFW personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki breaks down the top pass catchers expected to make an impact in the NFL next year.
