    Big test for the leagues best unit.

    Of all the matchups this week the o-line is the key. Jax plan will be to put as much pressure on Brady up the middle especially early. I just don't think they have the personel to drop 5 and 6 cover guys and still get pressure. They don't have the speed edge rushers but are powerful and get a tremendous push which then allows their LB's to hit the gaps untouched. If you have any of the Colts Jags games on DVR watch it and you will get a glimpse of the style in which they will play the pats.

    Also, what I noticed was from the Colts game was how key blitz pickup was by Colts RBs so I expect to see Faulk out there a good amount of the times.

    I surely hope that the Patriots use the hurry up, shotgun formation right from the opening drive. To try to establish the run is a waste of time, and it would be playing right into JAX plan to shorten the game. The Jags D is huge and I believe they will tire eventually. It also would be psychologically demoralizing to get burned by Brady/ Moss in quick strikes. Tha Jags are not a team that can make up a big deficit.

    My only concern is the Pats D tiring, but I am hoping the veterans are able to pace themselves.
