"The campaign is really starting to take off. Flowers (+2.5) has made himself a candidate for defensive player of the year through the first six weeks of the season. This was his trickiest task to date, facing up against the physically imposing (and generally excellent) Andre Johnson (+3.8). Neither man disappointed. Five times the ball was thrown to Johnson with Flowers the primary man in coverage, with the result 46 yards for Johnson and two pass deflections for Flowers. Sometimes both men play so well that the contest doesn’t have a loser, and this was one of those times."
