As we head into the playoffs our team needs to keep this in mind: Create turnovers on defense and don't give away the ball on offense.
Skip Bayless sounds like a broken record because he says this almost everyday, the most important stat in all of football is turnover differential. Right now we are +10 which is 7th in the league(pretty good).
In our 10 wins we are +12 in our 5 losses we are -2. It's simple.. we must take care of the rock. Also it seems that in the games where we don't turn the ball over our team as a whole plays significantly better. (The defense plays with energy and our offense is a well oiled machine)

Absolutely right. Plus run, run, run the ball. Bernard Pierce's emergence is huge right now. With him and Ray churning out yards and breaking off the big gains, defenses gotta respect the run --- which in turn opens up everything for Joe. So long Cam, don't let the door hit ya on the way out.
