Every game that Champ and Manning plays without reinjuring their lower leg injuries again will be immense for our playoff run. Outside of the first-quarter champ was incredibly sharp. Most of us don't even remember him being in the game and that's a very good thing for cornerback.
Our defense can get on a scary level if both champ and DRC our back and healthy for the playoffs. There is no way in hell NE would be able to pull off any type of comeback. It would allow us to leave man coverage on the wide receivers and bracket gronk for the entire game.
