Interesting to see that the Jets and Cowboys both won yesterday with a similar formula: stifling team defense, a strong running game, and mistake free QB play. The Jets finished with the fewest PPG in the NFL, the Cowboys 2nd. The Cowboys had the 4th best run defense in the NFL, the Jets finished 8th. The Jets finished led the league in rushing at 172 YPG (which was almost their exact total against Cincinnati), the Cowboys finished 7th, and chewed up Philly for over 190 yards rushing. And both Romo and Sanchez, QB's known for making mistakes in big games, played conservatively with no major mistakes. Nice formula for the playoffs. And the Pats play the Ravens, who have the #4 rushing attack in the NFL, the #3 scoring defense, the #5 rushing defense, and a very capable QB in Flacco. Seems like a similar situation. Not making any predictions, mind you, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the Ravens try a similar approach. If the Ravens are able to run the ball effectively, stop the run effectively, and Flacco doesn't make major mistakes, it will be a difficult game. Meanwhile we have the #12 rushing attack in the NFL and the #13 run defense. That doesn't really inspire confidence. But we do have a QB who figures in any GOAT discussion.
