Default Re: Vikings' plan for J.J. Watt: 'Run the football right down his throat'

"We've seen every look -- eight-, nine-man fronts. Whatever they throw at us, we're going to be able to block it," said Fusco, who, along with backup Geoff Schwartz, will match up against Watt. "He's special. Probably the best we're going to see. But we're ready to get after him. It's a fun challenge for us. Go out there, be physical with him and do what we like to do best: run the football right down his throat, basically."

Peterson's 6.3-yard-per-carry average emboldens such confidence, as the Vikings have averaged 29 running plays per game. The Texans have seen that kind of ground commitment from opponents only twice this season.
But Houston's dynamic 3-4 defensive front is unlike any the Vikings have seen in terms of speed, pressure and mayhem.

Yeah?

I'd like to see that!
"Chomp, chomp. Swallow. Next?" signed JJ Watt.
