    Here is my preview of the game and keys to the game for both teams.

    Keys to victory for my Packers.
    1. We need to get our running game going like last week against the Vikings. Lacy needs to keep grounding and pounding.
    2. We need to not get ourselves in 3rd and long all the time. We need to keep it at 3rd and 3 or less.
    3. We need to win the field position battle and start out at a short field.
    4. Need to keep Wake and Starks away from Rodgers.
    5. Rodgers needs to have a 300 yard passing day with at least 4 tds and no turnovers.
    6. We cant get ourselves into long drives in the South Florida heat.

    Keys to a Dolphins victory.
    1. If your running game gets going on our defense that will be huge for you guys.
    2. Win the TOP battle and keep Rodgers off the field.
    3. Tannehill has a huge day In the air passing for over 300 yards and at least 4 tds.
    4. Gotta get 7 points in the red zone and not 3 every time the Phins are down there.
    5. Pressure Rodgers and force him into a couple turnovers. If the Phins sack him 3 times or more that will be huge.
    6. Grind out Long drives to tire our defense out.

    Man I tell ya, the packers really have the respect of Bill lazor, says he doesn't look at the stats, he watches and believe what his eyes tell him and that is a very well coached defense, and one that plays very hard..

    They have that look right now like they might be a player for the ring, def the cream of that division, we're going to have to play a very good game.

    Who the hell knows, just come out like some crazed dogs, Rush the passer, play some man on man, keep sh@& in front of you and Gang tackle.

    I'm about at the point where I think the Dolphins' fortunes ride almost entirely on whether they can keep Ryan Tannehill out of low-percentage passing situations, i.e., second and long, third and long. I don't think he can function well enough in those situations to do what he needs to do against the likes of Aaron Rodgers.

    Whether they stay out of those situations with the running game or the passing game doesn't matter. The point is that they need to stay out of those situations.

    BTW, this was done originally off of memory, but here are the data:

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/splits/_/id/14876/ryan-tannehill

    Putting Ryan Tannehill in obvious passing situations isn't a good thing.

    A big key for Miami will be limiting turnovers. Tannehill has only thrown three picks, but more importantly, he has yet to fumble. Landry, Wallace, and Miller have all put the ball on the ground too damn much, costing both points and field position. What's crazy is Miami has a turnover differential of 0 right now, which means they're producing turnovers too. Green Bay generates similar amounts of turnovers (they have 10 in 5 games, Miami has 9 in 4) but they turn the ball over much less, which is why they are +6 in turnover differential.

    Based on those stats, letting him get sacked 4 times a game is worse. But that would infer somebody else needs to also do their job.

    I thought you said we don't need anything but stats? Why are you linking film?

    And my eyes must have deceived me because I thought I'd see some 2014 examples...since that's what the stats were.

    - Running game continuing at current clip.
    - Solid O-line protection, RT being efficient, very minimal or NO drops.
    - Good coverage packages and discipline, if they do a single-high safety I'll throw something at the TV.
    - Pressure/hits on Rodgers, within or near the pocket...can't let him run around.

    - FUNDAMENTALS!

    Yeah, if we keep putting the ball on the ground we are going nowhere; not good enough to overcome TO's.

    Sometimes I just get tired of analysis when the team doesn't allow us to depend on some consistency, so, screw all that stuff, come out like a bunch of dogs and play football, best team win..

    Biggest matchup for me when it comes Down to whether we will win, is if Grimey shuts down Nelson..I think he's got enough game to do it.

    The last 100 times this has happened for a quarterback on either team, that quarterback's team won the game 85% of the time:

    http://www.pro-football-reference.c...al=&c4stat=&c4comp=gt&c4val=&order_by=pass_td

    Of course this (at least 300 yards passing and 4 TD passes) happened only 11 times in the over 500 regular season and playoff games in 2013. Don't expect to see this by either team on Sunday, and especially not by the Dolphins. Ryan Tannehill has thrown 4 TD passes exactly zero times in his 36 pro starts. He's thrown 3 TD passes only three times, and 3 TD passes with at least 300 yards only once.

    I'm surrounding myself with soft toys for the inevitable throwing things at TV incident.

    We need to stop Lacy with 7 in the box if we want any chance of limiting Rodgers.

    Yes. It won't guarantee success, but NOT doing it is highly likely to guarantee failure.

    Also, it wouldn't hurt if the Packers lack a little bit of focus, coming off a blowout division win. They're probably too good for that, though.

    Agreed. If either QB throws 4 TD their team will win.

    Lmeister's Keys To The Game:


    Offense:

    Use the running game to set up play action.
    Use the pass to stretch the defense and push the ball down field.
    Score in the redzone. Don't settle for field goals. Keep Rodgers on the bench.


    Defense:

    Stop the run. If you can't stop Lacy you won't stop Rodgers.
    Don't give up chunk yardage in the air.
    Give up field goals but not 6.
    First down sets the tone for three-and-outs.


    Show me the money.

    That is not possible. Grimes will cover him probably less than 25% of the time. Better have good safety play.
