These guys are pros, however almost all of them also have big time egos, and Jordan Gross has been listening to people talk about Peppers all year, especially this week. And I know Jordan has gotten off to a slow start (partially because his knee), but I really don't think Pep will get any sacks off Gross, maybe some close hits but no sacks. Let's not forget, Jordan is no slouch by any means, and he will be just as motivated as Pep this week.
But there is no doubt that Pep will be moving around if he is not getting by Gross, and he will probably find more success on the right side of the offense. With that said, dont expect much of Goodson on offense, I think Fox will have some big boys in the backfield helping on chips and blitz pickups.
One thing we must do, an absolute must is... running screen plays and draws on plays when we expect them to blitz, especially towards Pep because is going to be flying around, going deep in the back field to get a sack. One thing that is undeniable, and maybe not possible anymore, but when the Panther rushing attack was at its best, we were getting 1st downs on 3rd and longs on draw plays.
I think the team that has at least two big Defense/Special teams play and doesn't make retarded mistakes, wins.
We will win Sunday. 20-10
