In case you missed it, the 2013 NFL season is in full swing. The Denver Broncos, led by Peyton Manning's seven touchdown performance, won the opening game of the season against the defending Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens. If you watched this game, you can't help but get excited about the season. Folks love to see offense, and this game delivered plenty of it. The teams combined for 932 total yards and 10 touchdowns. I know right?!
Jamal Collier over at BR does a good job of discussing the game plan for the Rams, who host the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday. The game plan seems pretty simple to me:
1. Get the ball to Givens early and often
2. Use Jared Cook's big body in red zone situations and take advantage of mismatches.
3. Get Tavon Austin the ball in space.
4. Pound the rock.
5. Get to Carson Palmer. Intense pressure = Larry Fitzgerald's impact being minimized.
6. Minimize penalties.
