Default Re: After watching the games today...

Like I said, a lot of things need to go right to beat Brady.

1. On defense, rush 4 more, hoping to avoid the big plays.
Brady was still able to move the ball though .
But you hope he makes some errors. He did when he missed a wide open D. Branch in the end zone near the end of the half.
He also barely missed a few more throws downfield, Welker and Hernandez I think .
Then you need their receivers to drop a few balls; they did on a few critical 3rd down conversions.
Then you hope that their receivers don't have too many good plays, they didn't , they didn't make some great catches like the Ravens receivers and TEs did.

Then you hope your pressure can get close to him some when needed; it did .
They batted a pass at the line causing an INT; they got enough of a push not to allow Brady to step into his throw and was short on the second INT.

You stifled the run game enough, including that forced fumble by Pollard .

Overall, the Ravens D allowed a bunch of yards, but they sucked it up when they needed too .

The Texans didn't have any of the above and that's just on the defensive side .
