to be honest, if you think we have the ability to get into a shootout with these guys, you are in for a RUDE AWAKENING.
They are the #1 Pass Defense in the NFL for a reason and we just don't have the speed to stretch the field on them.
I think a big key to winning the game, as much as I do not want to say it, is running the ball and controlling the clock. Our defense has shown up quite a few times against ELITE QB's and with Gates not having a RIDICULOUS mismatch against Man-law like he does against the rest of the NFL, I still think keeping them off the field is our only bet.
We have to run the ball as it as shown that because of their run defense and ST's, they have lost some games to teams they shouldnt have lost to (SEA, STL, OAK twice).
Dixon and Westbrook will be key and the offensive line needs to open up holes. they have been playing better in the past 4 games but for some reason, our running attack is HORRENDOUS against poor run defense teams
We need to come out there, convert and keep the chains moving, sustaining long drives against these guys. Wow, I sound like Mike Singletary right now
