As a neutral observer, I see this as the key matchup to the game. The most important player on the Broncos' running game against the most important player of the Pats' run defense. If the Pats can stop the Broncos running game and not have to overly commit to stopping it, they will likely win the game. Shanahan has basically tried to handcuff Plummer with his playcalling this year, so I don't see him being able to win the game without a strong running game. I am making this post because I'd like to see the breakdown of this matchup from the first time you guys played, and also get some insightful opinions of the matchup. I have been impressed with the breakdown Bocks O'Rocks (sp?) does of the Pats games. It should be a great matchup. The Pats' front seven has been dominant for the last few games, but this is definitely the best O-line they have faced. Thoughts?
