So, here we are again. If past is prologue, we're heading for the Super Bowl. But why doesn't it feel that way...again?
If it's true we are at our best when our backs are against the wall, we are in for a fantastic game this evening. If we were any closer to the wall, we'd be primer.
While it's true certain stars could align even if we lose today that would allow us yet another breath of life next week, but that's not very likely to happen.
We need Bradshaw to play, sharing the load with Wilson and Lumpkin. As for Tuck, I think he needs the rest and Tracy needs a chance to get some serious defensive snaps heading in to the playoffs.
With Amukamara Back will we be able to take advantage of the 3 safety scheme with Phillips inactive?
Will we get the three safety scheme on track and make some defensive noise via turnovers? Jacquian Williams played last week so hopefully any rust he accumulated during his absence was left in Atlanta.
Our biggest challenge is Rice running through us as though we weren't there. If we can contain him, forcing Flacco to air it out, our secondary should pick him off.
Will we finally put up a pass rush to at least make Flacco hear footsteps?
Finally, will Kicker Lawrence Tynes return to his near perfect form? Special Teams, overall, have been the most consistent unit this season. The coverage team has done a very good job as has Steve Weatherford.
The time for talking is over. Are we going to go to 9 - 6 or are we going to the showers?
