This is going to be a close game. Both teams are angry and coming off two losses. Both teams undoubtedly want to get back on the winning track. But it all comes down to discipline. The team that sticks to its game plan and avoids stupid penalties/ turnovers will win.
I'm going to go with the Als by a slim margin only because we're playing at home.
Theoretically, there is nothing wrong with our front 7 on defense. It's essentially the same group from last year (minus Megna). As the Don said, if players cover their gaps and stick to their defensive assignments, everything should be fine. On the other hand, if K.J. starts freelancing again, or if Strickland falls down in man coverage on a blitz, it could get ugly for us in a hurry. Kenton Keith is to my mind the most talented running back in the league and Nealon Greene is no slouch at running either. If we contain those two on the ground, we should win.
