KEYS TO THE GAME:

Get After Patrick Mahomes -- He's playing. I'd bet anything. So we need to make him uncomfortable in the pocket, get him off his spots, and limit down field throws.

LIMIT TURNOVERS -- Seems obvious, right? That's because it's extremely important against an underdog with a powerful offense. The fewer chances we give them (and give away to them), the better our defense will be. We can't afford short fields against a team designed to move the ball like Tech does.

COVER JAKEEM GRANT -- Seriously.

RUN THE BALL -- I say this every week and probably will for the foreseeable future.
