Okay, boys and girls, we're going up against the only undefeated team in the league. What are the keys to this game? What do our Als have to do to win?
On offense, we need to get Cobourne involved early so play action becomes effective. Calvillo needs to be protected.
On defense, PASS RUSH. We have to get in Durant's cage early and rattle him with some big hits. We also have to play the screen effectively as the Riders love to throw screen passes to Cates to blunt aggressive pass rushes. I don't want to see Cates picking up first downs on second and 10 with screens.
On special teams, we need to execute better and scheme better when covering and returning. Armstead can do some damage if we give him the lanes.
