In response to ghostofjri37's comment:
He's been playing mostly on the Jet's right side in the 3-4. Solder and M,ankins will be dealing with him mostly.
They're trying to play 3-4, but it's not their base. Coples has been a bust, so they're trying to make it seem like he isn't a bust, which means he's starting at DE on the weak side in the 4-3.
Davis, Harris and whatever the other schlep's name is plays the other LB spot.
They over-commit to stop the run, but they haven't played a QB like this all year.
Yes, Matt Ryan is very good, but once we learned of White and Jones's injuries, it made their D look better and still they gave up 28 points to Atlanta.
The key to this game is for our O to establish some variation of a run to make it easier in the second half for the pass. They'll have chances early. Their LBs and secondary are god awful in coverage.
On D, take out their run. They may try to get cute early and throw quick passes, which will be slants or seams, but make no mistake, if they can't get the run going, Smith is compromised.
See last week's game vs Pitt. They've been lucky in every win this year in some way. BB gets a second sniff on a rookie QB in the divsion and it ain't pretty.
I can see Rexie dropping in a Cribb's/Brad Smith kind of trick play here or there designed to keep NE's D honest, but it's about their run game. Load up the box and stop it to get the ball back to the offense.
Do u think any chance of a double te passing game?
