I haven't been to impressed with their running game though. If we can bottle them up like we did last night, I don't think Shaub is good enough to beat us.
On offense, the key will be to run at Watt and get Iupati engaged on him. Watt is good against the run but he's deadly against the pass and in pursuit situations.
Whoa, hang on there now buddy. Hopkins is good but he and Johnson aren't anywhere near the level of Denver's receivers who are hands down, the best unit in the league.
I have Johnson on my fantasy team and IIRC, he's only made it through one full game and has yet to find the end zone. In fact, Houston didn't find the end zone at all last week against the Ravens. Peyton on the other hand, could have had the water boy out running routes and still would have made them look silly.
Doesn't mean anything come next week, just saying.
