While it may have been perceived as a "scratchy" performance against Australia last week, there were plenty of positives to be taken from the game.
Not only did England beat the -6 handicap given to them pre-match, they also dominated the forward battle and suppressed the Wallabies fire-power out wide.
It's a whole new proposition this week, however, as they face an Argentinian side who, it's fair to say, love to scrum.
With that in mind, Stuart Lancaster has named a whole new front row to tackle the physical proposition and come into the game as strong favourites.
They have a -14 handicap to contend with this week - something they have covered in both meetings between the two this year.
To cover this, the England backs will need to play with the flair we know they can - none more so than winger Chris Ashton.
The Saracens flyer keeps his place due to an injury to Christian Wade and is joint-favourite to open the scoring at 15/2.
Also gaining a place in the starting line-up due to injury is fellow winger Ben Foden - who comes in for Marland Yarde, who picked up a knock to the hip against Australia.
The Northampton Saints full-back impressed against Argentina in the summer and is a good price to score anytime at 11/8.
Point to prove
Argentina, on the other hand, will be hoping to improve on a poor series in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Pumas were defeated in each of their six games against Australia, New Zealand and South Africa a few months ago and, never once did they score over 20 points.
Therefore, the shortest try scorer price in the Argentina ranks is Horacio Agulla at 16/1.
The Bath winger or full-back has scored just four tries in 48 games - highlighting the lack of points threat the South American's pose.
They are also in search of their first win over England since June 2009.
That victory over Argentina was by a two-point margin - which is 10/1 in the Winning Margin market - and they will need to be on top form to defeat an English side looking to boost their International credentials with a strong performance on Saturday.
England -7 on the '1st Half Handicap: In the two meetings between these two sides this year, England have been winning by more than 12 points at half-time.
