Twitter was buzzing this past NFL weekend with many close calls and exciting finishes. There was significant chatter surrounding the referees and there is sure to be more this coming weekend with the regular referees back on the field. Last week’s poll question also came down to a narrow result of which quarterback would throw for more passing yards, Tom Brady or Matthew Stafford. Each of them tossed one touchdown pass, but it was Brady coming out on top in passing yards as he threw for 335 yards vs. the Baltimore Ravens. Stafford, threw for 278 yards against the Tennessee Titans before leaving the game with a leg injury. Had he not been injured, Stafford would have likely surpassed Brady’s total and could have lead his Lions to a victory.

In this week's edition of The Extra Point Poll presented by XFINITY, we will take a look at two top running backs in the NFL: Houston's Arian Foster (@ArianFoster) and Jacksonville's Maurice Jones-Drew (@Jones_Drew32). Foster has rushed for 294 yards and scored 3 rushing touchdowns along with one through the air thus far in 2012. He will be at home facing the Tennessee Titans defense that is 29th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed. On the other hand, Maurice Jones-Drew has shook off any rust from the contract holdout by rushing for 314 yards with one rushing and one receiving touchdown in 2012. Jones-Drew will also be at home facing a Cincinnati Bengals defense that is 31st in the league against the run. Both matchups are sure to provide opportunities for high fantasy totals so hopefully they are not matched up against your fantasy team this week.

The question this week is which running back will have more rushing yards in Week 4: Arian Foster or Maurice Jones-Drew? Vote now in the poll below and let your fantasy voice be heard! Remember to tweet me all week long @XFINITYSports as I will help prepare you in setting the ultimate fantasy week 4 lineup.

Good luck!
