We all know the track record, we all know the frustration, we all know the ramifications of this game. To add to all that, Seattle is banged up and they have been fairly inconsistent, and have won a lot of close games. We of course are beat up on out D line and have been fairly inconsistent ourselves.
I have no idea how this game goes, but what we REALLY need to be aware of is misdirection plays, rollouts, and screens. Starting with Lamar Jackson, we have been getting burned relentlessly by our DEs not setting the edge and staying in their assigned lanes. They crash the middle on fakes and leave the edges wide open for rollouts, scrambles, and screens. I mean, fuck, Matt Ryan and Jared Goff faked us out on plays like that.
Russell Wilson will eat us alive if we don’t stay at home. This is my biggest worry tonight. If we don’t defend well, we can’t win. Not up there. Again, this game will be won by protecting Jimmy and pressuring RW.
