    A Couple Of Keys To Beating MIN

    - We have to control Peterson running the ball. So far we've done a good
    job against a couple of good running teams (BAL, MIA) but this will be our
    biggest test

    - We have to get "A Gap" pressure on Favre from Pryce, Harris & Scott.
    Favre has no mobility anymore, pressure up the middle will get us sacks
    and his reckless flings down the field which we can turn into INT's

    - Exotic edge blitzes against their tackles (Loadholt & Mckinnie) should be
    very effective. They are big & strong but extremely lacking in handling speed
    off the edges

    - MIN is a classic 4-3 cover two team which is very good against the run. If
    our O-line continues their excellent play Sanchez will be able to carve their
    back seven up because they are not good in coverage

    - We have to run at Jared Allen he is so intent on always getting sacks that
    he has a tendency to run himself out of position on misdirection running
    plays

    Agreed, especially the Allen part...

    Can't disagree with any of that. Great points.

    I look to see a lot of LT in the passing game

    Min's LB's, especially Henderson and Leber are much better defending the run then in pass coverage. I would like to see LT split out in space allowing him to run option routes depending on the coverage he sees.

    I see them shutting down Peterson, reeling them in with ground and pound and stretching the field with Edwards and Holmes, we can handle this secondary. Sprinkle in a little Keller. Oh, and beat the living $hit out of Favre, yeah I like like that last part alot.

    The Jets have to do 2 things and 2 things only and everything else will fall into place.

    Protect the football, do not give the football away - no INT's and no fumbles.

    Stop Adrian Peterson. I know Pettine and the defense have been stressing this all week long, gang tackling Peterson and making sure he gets brought down, as well as trying to knock the ball out when he gets stood up fighting for extra yardage.

    The Defense has been stressing this this week and I believe they will be up to the task.

    The rest will all fall into place. I expect the biggest game of the year (so far) for our defense to be tomorrow night against Favre and the Vikings.

    This is a match made in heaven for the Jets defense.

    a la Jerry Rice, love to see that, if Sanchez and Holmes have that timing down.

    Peterson's ball handling + Jets gang-tackling and stripping tactics = fumbles

    Minnesota's poor pass protection + Rex's blitzes + Favre = interceptions

    The only game-changing danger will come from Percy Harvin.

    I think everyone is forgetting to mention one big key.

    And that is pass protection for Mark Sanchez. I know the last 3 weeks we've been great at this and protected Mark Well. But look who we played. NE, Miami and Buffalo. 3 teams who are not putting a ton of pressure on the QB right now at all.

    Minnesota on the other hand can reck havoc and if we don't protect Mark it could be a long day. On the flip side if we do protect him, Mark will dice them up.

    I really feel this is the #1 key tonight. Protect the Sanchize and we win.
