Conversely we will look to shut down the run again this week. Essentially bringing this game down to Schaub vs Cutler. So who has a better game? If I am Kubiak I target AJ all night long.
Totally disagree. This game depends on our front 5. We have to be able to impose our will, where they have to commit an 8 & 9th man to stopping the run. Same thing on defense, we have to stop the run with our front 7, & if Cody doesn't play, I think we'll be in trouble.
Their offense is much like ours, in that it's balanced with the ability to make big plays in the running game, the passing game, & the screen game.
So this game will be decided by what happens in the trenches & who blinks first.
