With ends Johnson and Hardy fighting knee injuries (and probably out), the formidable Front 4 of the Panthers will be slightly less imposing. Their strength, their Defensive Line is our our weakness - our offensive line.
If they were healthy, we would have no chance to move the ball on that defense. We were simply out-matched, yet these injuries bring us closer to competitive.
If we game plan correctly, if we start faster than we have lately, if Tannehill can hit Wallace deep at least once, and if our defense can contain the scrambling Cam Newton we might be able to keep this close.
For the first time this year, I am saying that the chance of us winning is less than 1 in 4, a 25% chance of winning. The injuries make it maybe a 35% chance to win.
This is about game planning, play calling, execution and general coaching. Hopefully, we pull a Buffalo and upset them...
