More fun if you actually watch the games. I guess if you just check the record at the end of the season though, not much difference.

Why is that in Lions news?


All Other Games seems appropriate.

Basic NFL playoff football tenets:

Run the ball well
Defend the run well
Win/Do not lose the turnover battle

They do NOT change

You will never get blown out with that formula. Might lose a lot of close ones, but you don't need a HOF caliber QB to not get blown out.
Oh and as Al Micheals said to wrap up the game, "Great defense and good running game but you still need your QB to make a few play to win the game, and Nick Foles made the plays to win this game."
