If our offense is clicking, and our defense just plays up to itself, we can hang with any AFC team.
This is the main problem. Other than Watt, our defense has shown to take SEVERAL steps back over the past 6 games.
I think if the defense steps up and starts playing lights out like they once were then that will be the cog in our machine. Key third down stops, sacks, defended passes, QB knockdowns, RB stuffs, and increased 3 and outs then equates to a loud crowd and then the "Big Mo". I truely believe that the defense is the key to our success...(i.e. the arrival of Wade Phillips = two back to back playoff appearances)
