On the one hand this is one of those lose-lose situations. If we happen to find a way to lose this game then that is an absolute disaster. If we win but win close then it is almost as bad as losing. And if we win? Well, we were supposed to win so big deal.
On the other hand this is a valuable game for this team that has kinks to work out. The Offense needs to continue to dominate the line of scrimmage and get some rhythm in the passing game. Defensively we need to work a lot on our coverage, tackling and just plain game experience.
Ultimately this game comes at exactly the right time. We'll see how this one plays out.
