This game really is important.
Go back and look at all of our SB seasons - the defense was disruptive, sacking the QB and forcing TO's.
For the second straight year, we're on pace to average less than one TO per game and roughly 2 sacks per game.
That ain't going to cut it. Unless these guys really turn it up a notch, I don't see a big run out of this team. Even if you hold the other team from scoring, which they've done well, the offense can't get going if it's on 80+ yard fields the entire day.
