Mike Williams, who has not started a game since 2005 until last week, steps in at right tackle and Stephon Heyer moves to the left side. Their defense is ranked fifth overall with a third ranked pass defense and a 22nd ranked rush defense. When RB Clinton Portis rushes for 100-plus yards, his teams are 33-10 .
