8 in the box


Recommended Posts

Everyone has seen this by now....but take the time and go back and notice how many Lions are committed toward stopping the run.

On most of these runs...I am counting 8 Lions in the box with a 9th guy cheating up on some runs. I counted only 1 run with 7 in the box.

Keep in mind that Detroit knew they were facing a rookie qb. There gameplan hinged on stopping the run and making the Falcons throw it. TB is going to try to do the same thing.

The Lions defense was gashed even with 8 in the box and they knew the run was coming.

Yes...TB's defense is better than Detroits but Turner will still achieve some success.

Falcons will defeat Tampa 20-17 as Turner rushes for 130 yds.
