Would agree with this. Somewhat surprised that the Patriots haven't thrown it more to Lewis and White in the Playoffs, although they didn't really need to against the Steelers as their receivers were wide open all game.

Really don't see the Falcons having much joy running the ball, but Coleman and Freeman can both do damage out of the backfield. Atlanta need to do a better job of utilising Taylor Gabriel, as he can make a big play from nothing and the Patriots haven't really faced a WR like him.

How New England goes about covering Julio Jones is one of the things I'm most looking forward to in tonight's game...

Seeing a lot of 12 & 87 Jerseys outside the stadium on NFL Network!
Could be a Patriot house!

with Lewis is been about match-ups with the Texans been a man coverage team and he had some key plays but as you said the Steelers zone was ripped apart as we played 4 WR.guess the backs today will be key if Atlanta use the seahawk scheme,maybe Shane Vereen type stats if he gets open.Also James White played so well early on in the season he has earned his snaps.

with Jones after watching the NFC championship highlights if we bring pressure and try covering him 1 on 1 we will be in a world of trouble,think its alot of zones and watch for Hightower or another linebacker doing what they did against the steelers where he dropped about 5 yards deep and just hit anyone running crossing routes.

Already ate my pizza, but still got Doritos, popcorn, cheesy puffs and pringles to get through, so i reckon I'm ok.

Interestingly, just saw a tweet that said the average viewer of the superbowl tonite will consume around 2,500 calories Reckon' I'm half way there already!!!
