Spartans key to defeat crusaders is simple, keep the ball outside. They are the strongest n the middle. We all know their secondary is not really talented and their starting outside linebackers are horrible, they cant cover or tackle. They have a pretty solid hard hitting OLB in #20 but he doesn't play in most series. I dont understand why not, but if he is in run the other way to the outside. Depending on how Much #20 is in determines alot on which they actually have a chance on outside containment he is a relentless blitzer and they have the best MLB's Left in these playoffs. Thier defensive ends are also suspect, I sill wonder why their defense is ranked so high. Their offense is hardly a factor at all!
