One of the key questions in the NFC title game: Can the 49ers secondary contain New York’s talented three wide receivers?
Greg Cosell of NFL Films joined me on PFT Live Friday. He expects Carlos Rogers to be on Victor Cruz in the slot, with Mario Manningham and Hakeem Nicks taking on Tarrell Brown and Chris Culliver on the outside.
Rogers and Cruz had a great battle the first time the teams played, with both players winning their share of battles.
Cosell thinks the battle outside will be the key to the game. For his view on Alex Smith’s growth, the Ravens receivers, and the improved Patriots defense, watch his full interview below.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
