Pennsbury ran for 558 yards last week and had the same intention for Friday's District 1 Class AAAA quarterfinal against Garnet Valley. "The game plan was to run the ball," Falcons coach Galen Snyder said. "Just keep running the ball. " It took some time, but the plan panned out. Pennsbury scored 31 unanswered points in the second half, including 28 in the fourth quarter, en route to a 45-14 home win. "We just hung with the game plan," Snyder said. "We wore them down a little bit. " Rutgers recruit Charles Snorweah, who had rushed for 427 yards and seven touchdowns last week, scored on runs of 56 and 60 yards.

At the most exciting, important time of the football season, the best team in South Jersey will play one game in a span of 28 days. That's a crime. St. Joseph improved to 9-0 with a 49-0 victory over Ocean City on Saturday. The Wildcats, the No. 1 team in The Inquirer's South Jersey rankings, will sit home with a playoff bye this weekend. St. Joseph will play again in the Non-Public 1 semifinals on Nov. 22. And barring a monumental upset at the hands of the Mater Dei vs. Morristown-Beard winner - if there was a line, it would be 431/2 - the Wildcats will finish the season in the state final, likely Dec. 6 at Kean University.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 11 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Robert Griffin III, QB, Redskins vs. Buccaneers. Coming off his bye and a solid return in Week 9 against the Vikings, Griffin should be well-prepared for the vulnerable secondary heading to FedEx Field. Given the playmaking receivers at his disposal and a good running game to keep the Bucs guessing, RG3's ceiling is high. Frank Gore, RB, 49ers at Giants. This has been a frustrating year for Gore and his owners, but he turned in a solid performance in New Orleans last week.
