November is just right around the corner and all eyes will be on the showdown against the New Orleans Saints down at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Before we even circle this game as the game for next month, there are two other teams that are playing great ball as of late that they may pose a problem for us and give us that "L".
The Carolina Panthers look like they have found their rhythm as they have notched impressive victories against the Vikings and Rams. Cam Newton is one physical specimen and has an arm that can get to their receivers (Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell). They also have a stingy defense that may cause problems.
In all indications, RG3 has regained his mobile form back before his knee surgery and has the arm to make plays. He is mobile so he can run as it looks like they run the read option. He has also found himself a new target in Jordan Reed. The Skins have a formidable defense as well. Of course it is a Monday Night game so this will be an interesting one between the two. It will be read option vs. read option.
We are expecting weapons in Crabtree and Manningham back on our offense, and Aldon Smith is coming back earlier than most expected. The offense should open up some more for Kaep as it won't be two or three targets anymore. The issue will be are those two receivers be at 100%.
Next month will be an interesting one indeed, but we should not overlook the Panthers and Redskins because of what is ahead and after the matchup. A trap game could exist so need to continue to stay focus and take one game at a time.
Pick which team concerns you the most (and may get us a "L"), or select that we will beat both of them.
