Geno Atkins is probably the best 4-3 tackle in the league right now. He has 10.5 sacks and is a leader in pressures, tackles, and QB hits. He is the RT [or under tackle], similar to Warren Sapp in the Tampa 2. That means that the DE plays over the tackle (King Dunlap) and it makes it difficult to double team him.

Evan Mathis has been playing at a Pro Bowl level--but trying to block Geno Atkins one-on-one will be a HUGE challenge. This will be a major key to the game. [Our tackles on their defensive ends will be a chalenge too.]

Bengals are no slouches - Dalton has turned into a pretty good QB and he has a top 5 receiver to throw to - will Aso or DRC be on him?

#18 AJ Green dropped an easy TD pass against the Cowboys. He's a great receiver though. He usually lines up on the right side, so DRC would take hm. But he lines up on the left quite often too- and consdering the trouble Namdi is having with speed receivers, that could be a matchup they look to exploit. Also, Dalton has confidence in Green to just go up for it and steal the ball from a defender or even two defenders. When they get in the Red Zone, one of their favorite plays is to line him up on he left and he does a quick out to about two yards behind the pylon. Dalton throws it high and Green skies. Dalton is becoming a bigtime QB.

Or you use Peyton Manning's favorite play: two receivers on one side run square ins--one in front of the defender and on behind him. On the backside you run the back out on a flat swing pass. You are talking five yards and ten yards. If the defender takes the deep receiver you throw to the front guy for an easy five yards. If he moves up and there's no help, you throw to the guy in back for ten. If both are covered you go to the back on the backside. Peyton has run this play a shocking amount of the time and it keeps working.
