Not sure if they continue to do that, but it's something that could happen.... so yes, our RBs, and our 3rd WR need to step up big.

Come on Tyrell.... no more dropped passes.... get back to your mid-year form... i still need you to fulfill my prophecy...
It's Tyrell's time to shine. He wants the money, this is the time he shows other teams that he is deserving of the price he seeks. Belichick will try to take away KA and MW. Benjamin too. He ran backwards on the punt return in last years game against NE. Time for him to redeem himself. Henry coming back is going to be huge. Because they'll have to account for the middle of the field which we haven't been too stellar at.

We could try to use the same gameplan that the Jets and Ravens used on New England but it won't be easy. Belichick will take note of the 7 DB formation and devise a plan for it. He's going to run the ball on us because that's what's been our weakness at times. So linebackers Emanuel and Pullard may need to be more involved.

Their best rusher is Trey Flowers.

That's what Xenos was saying, Spaniard.

Although Rex Ryan was saying that Gilmore will go ahead and take KA, rather than a double team. We shall see, I guess.

Thing is -- I think KA can beat a #1 db, based on his route running. And I also think that MW an beat a #1 db, based on his catching radius and his physicality.

Bottom line? I ain't skeered.

I feel like I am beating a dead horse here... but MDub is going to be the key moving forward from a WR perspective. He has flashed #1 WR capabilities when he is targeted. He is a mismatch and if they double Allen then I think MDub is going to make a giant impact on this game.... especially now that it looks like snow will not be a major factor:

I do not see that happening consistently enough to be the deciding factor. Rivers will make the correct move more often than not, same can be said of Brady. Should be fun.....
Oakland is the only NFL team with a weaker pass rush record than NE. Not to say they won't pick their shots & try but it's not a 2018 NE forte. BB is a master schemer so there will be something we haven't seen but I'd be proactive on O, see what they got. LAC does have a lot of offensive weapons. Put our talent in the game.
