Run Defense
The past two weeks we have gone against argueably the two best Running backs in the NFL, both of them playing at a very high level

I don't know how, but our D has responded to this by playing awesome in run D, look at the last two weeks stats

Week 14 - Chris Johnson - 11 carries for 23 yards

Week 15 - Adrian Peterson 11 carries for 60 yards, one run of 39 yards got the majority of his yards

I've been impressed with how we are stopping running backs lately, couple more interceptions and I'll be even happier

Could it be the acquisitions of Rogers & Franklin finally paying off?!

They came around and they have started to dig in and it's showing. This is a good line even when they got eaten alive at times, they are now showing us what they are and have been capable of doing. Dig in deep we still have a long way to go and they can get us there.

I just hope this is the start of something BIG!!!

Ok Dizzle. I have to disagree with part of what you said.

Both RB's are absolutely NOT playing at a high level, certainly nowhere near what they're capable of.

Good news:

We'll find out just how good we are vs Turner and then the Three-headed rushing monster of Carolina.

Franklin and Rogers are just now getting into shape. They're not exactly spring chickens.
