I was thinking this game would be a 41-34 shoot-out kind of game. But I wouldn't be too surprised to see both teams play a little ball control, and try to limit each other's offensive opportunities.
We'll probably do more 3-4 today, without Haynesworth. It also provides more coverage for the short passing game, which Fitzpatrick likes so much.
I agree, 85 looked a little more comfortable last week. I'd love to see a breakout game for him.
I think we need a fast start. Even if it's a grind-it-out, 10 play drive. I don't think we can afford many 3-and-outs, or it could be a long afternoon...
