NEED TO KNOW

ROUGHNECKS

Big plays on both sides of the ball have carried the undefeated Roughnecks through the first two weeks. Venturing on the road for the first time is a new test for the West leaders. "To be a championship team, you have to win your games at home and you have to steal a couple on the road," head coach June Jones said.

QB P.J. Walker and WR Cam Phillips have earned the first two Star of the Week awards, respectively.

VIPERS

With only one touchdown in two games, the Vipers need an offensive boost. Maybe that'll come with the trade for WR S.J. Green, a longtime CFL standout.

Who will be throwing to Green and the rest of the receivers remains a question. QB Aaron Murray (foot) was out last week and has not practiced this week as of Wednesday. Backups Taylor Cornelius and Quinton Flowers have struggled.

RBs De'Veon Smith (125 yards) and Jacques Patrick (105) rank in the league's top five in rushing and should be busy again to help keep Houston's offense off the field.
