Hey guys,

I'm up against one of our league's top scoring players this week, so every point counts. Who would you start between:

Giants Defense
Titans Defense

Most weeks I would go with the Giants D hands down. This week, however, I'm a bit nervious. They are playing the Cowboys in their home opener in their brand new stadium in front of 100k+ fans. Meanwhile the Titans are up against a shaky Texans team.

Who would you go with?

What's the scoring system for your defenses?

Do you get bonus points for punts off the scoreboard? ;)

Thanks Seatown, I'm leaning towards TN this week as well. It just seems to be a safer pick.

Who would you choose between Aaron Rodgers and Tony Romo? Here's how we score passing:

TD Pass 6
Every 50 passing yards 1
50+ yard TD pass bonus 1
400+ yard passing game 5
2pt Passing Conversion 2
Interceptions Thrown -2

Again, I'm torn. Romo vs. a great Giants D...it's hard to see who comes out on top here. That being said, Rodgers is expected to put up big numbers this year and he's playing a not-so-great Bengals D.

Your defense is probably going to be a wash. That said, I would go with Rodgers this week, simply because he's at home against a weaker team.
