I until they Arrington and welcome to our week eleven NFL preview brought you back Miller's 64 season last wet and Beers. I'm pleased to be joined by fox we're stuck come NFL analyst Curtis Conway a remake visit Detroit to the pack are coming off a bye week. Well Mike McCarthy have his team focused on heading into the game. I think he already had their focus and to stay focused and less picked up where we left off you know affordable I would think blindsided by. On a four game winning streak they were planned well maybe even go back to the Seattle game face it when the game so this football team has been playing well I think you keep them all pull our. She -- where you play and I think the one -- if I had to pick out one. Protect Aaron Rodgers a little more you know dig into -- a little too more is -- sacked nine times. You know we got to have that guy on the field so any thing protect the quarterback but this team has been playing great -- The Lions have been characterized by slow starts this season. What do you think they can do to get off to better starts in games. Well. They run the football at the beginning of the game a little more with the sure you know. Passed the ball at the beginning of the game a little more difficult to learn again run could you not expect him to give big play to try to get three. Four yards a pop in the passing game Saturday read them to get a rhythm going exactly especially in that offense you know is not one of those -- school's office where he didn't slant is quick passes as you're going. Got guys going down field trying to complete -- on low percentage passes. It's a little difficult so you find yourself mentally and I'll start slow and as the game progresses you start to pick up you start to get a little rhythm store to get warm so. I would say try to run the ball. I noticed that -- DNA he but I believe -- -- -- right correct prediction time do you think when -- a -- -- I'm going green -- I think the Packers and their own -- hopefully they start the game faster and all started slow cause you know -- had the bye we can sometimes beckoned her to more than anything especially. When you've been on a four game -- -- all of them go green but. -- -- Living on outs rather resurgent Saints traveled Oakland. And when Darren Sproles went down a lot of people thought this would really hurt that team in it would be a -- effective running the ball actually they'd been better. How do you think they've been doing it right. Well I think they've been focusing on running the ball -- you that they Sproles is more of a receiver out of backfield vs you know Mark Ingram. Or Chris Ivory date they -- more of the in between the tackles pound it type of on the game and that's taken the ball out Drew Brees hands a little more. Reopened -- the last couple games is on -- ball like 32 to 35 times a game. These guys are one -- between the tackles keeping defenses off balance with Sproles back there you know he's not putting him between the tackles so you can. You know how to predict. You know pre pre snap that they're gonna go to ball so with you know Ingram and every in the backfield you have to think about the while which keeps the defense off balance. Little bit off balance well Oakland 31 in the league in defense he Drew Brees is gonna carved them up. I think so -- here's why you know is not that the secondary is bad but also. Has a history of playing man to man coverage you saw last week against Joseph Flacco who welcomes a good quarterback. I'm talking about one of the league's quarterbacks who stole the ball all over the field you got Todd is going to -- you've got receivers on the outside. And Drew Brees of the beautiful boy and now that you got their running game going they have to worry about those -- in the backfield which means what it. They may have the safety up and leave those guys out there one -- one -- -- their safeties one on one with the tightness that's not a good recipe for the race. Well I know what Saints fans think they're excited about this on how do you think it plays out. I think the signs are. Playing good football right now and the defense is playing well. They'd be you know how the running game -- have been dealt with the blessing in disguise it a warning when you get her but I think the running game has on defense is into more of now yes would keep them off balance and wants. It's gathered back to the old think a lot of that are finally the Chargers travel to Denver. -- sane Diego loses this game is Norv Turner done. I don't know if there will be this gang but I think that eventually he will -- It's hard for me to just point the finger at Norman -- a lot of people don't want him. Out of San Diego but here's the thing -- -- few years you lose LaDainian Tomlinson you give Matthew he hasn't played a full season and since then. You go to guy Antonio Gates hasn't played a force in didn't you let Vincent Jackson go. Norv Turner is offensive coach who likes the ball down field. When you -- Vincent Jackson. Antonio Gates has been banged up -- but they know how I figured there's ten guys got to go to and they had had a bad the last three years so you know. I think -- was probably worn out his welcome but I can't point the finger totally -- And we're not gonna -- on this one game -- -- the Broncos the defense is still coming together under coordinator Jack Del Rio. Still I have to pieces to be in only. Of the book but don't godless you know when you have bookends like their second question the concerned about the the quarterback. You can build around those guys and that's what they've done you look at Tracy Porter experienced Champ Bailey playing at a high level. They got Rahim Moore as the young safety he's come around then you know. When you have those type of pieces. You can do a lot of things get them to actually play well the difference was the reason why they've made it to the players understand everybody was Tebow mania but the defense. Kept the game closely Tebow can do his magic with two minutes left to go when games are always -- his defense even from last year. At this is a strong defense and over talk and strong. Video like this game should I even ask oh of course not -- Atlanta or you. Don't -- Payton and of course he's playing at a high level good to see him back on the feels good for football and like you said the defense they're playing well also. Right that's gonna do it for our week eleven NFL preview brought -- -- LS 64. Too -- sweat and tears for Curtis Conway and -- -- then we'll see you next time.
