    IMO it will come down to the play of the lineman.

    Good o-line play will offset bad weather.
    Good D-line play will offset Alexander.

    I went with the weather.


    I think it could impact the game plans, and you also have to consider the fact that the Hawks have a WR corps known for dropping passes and a RB who has had fumbling problems (5 fumbles, 3 lost, this year). If it snows, those issues could loom large.

    I think its none of the above but maybe the much improved play of the D Line is a major X factor...

    the special teams...

    if the rams continue to allow opposing teams to start at their 40+ yd line then i don't think our defense is stout enough to hold them less than 21 pts...

    I think that Steven Jackson is the X-Factor in this game.If Martz will cool his passing ego a bit and utilize Jackson and Faulk properly we will win.Not meaning to go off -topic here,but Jackson and Julius Jones of the Cowboys are the NFC running back stars of the future.
