Last Week: 0 catches
After posting five touchdown catches in the past six games, Rudolph produced absolutely nothing last week vs. the Arizona Cardinals. The Vikings tight end will be going up against the 31st ranked pass defense in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and should be able to pick off where he left off from Weeks 2-6 and continue to have a great sophomore year.
RB Doug Martin, Buccaneers
Last Week: 16 carries, 85 yards, TD
Martin has been somewhat of a pleasant surprise thus far throughout the
2012 season. Averaging more than four yards per carry and 408 yards rushing in six games, the rookie running back out of Boise State looks to be among this year’s first-year running back steals, along the likes of Alfred Morris. The only criticism that could be warranted would be only having two touchdowns on the year, but that should change in no time.

From Super Bowl XLV and big-time college football games to Paul McCartney and U2, Cowboys Stadium has hosted some premier events since its opening in 2009.
One thing it hasn’t seen, though, is a Cowboys’ win over the Giants. Kicking off with a 33-31 victory in the first regular-season game played in the venue, the Giants are 3-0 in Arlington.
Head coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Tony Romo were asked if that will be on their minds when the NFC East rivals square off in Texas this Sunday. The two spoke Wednesday on a conference call with Giants beat reporters.
“Regardless of where we play them, we want to play well,” said Garrett, who was made interim head coach midway through 2010 before taking over permanently the next season. “Certainly you want to protect your home field advantage and certainly play well at home, but you want to play well on the road, you want to play well in the parking lot, you want to play well on the moon. Our players hear me say that a lot. It will be a great challenge for us at our place on Sunday against this football team.”
Despite the lopsided win column, the games have been close each time. In the three wins, the Giants have outscored the Cowboys 111-100, with the largest margin of victory being six points in 2010 (41-35).
“Well, I think you’re always trying to win games at home,” Romo said. “You’re trying to win every game, really. You know that the home games give you a great opportunity to play in an environment that gives you a few more things on your side. I think they’ve been a tough team, and the Giants have been a really good football team for a while now. This year is no different. It’s a great team, it’s going to be a great challenge. We know what we’re up against, and we have to play our best game.”
