Jekyll and Hyde, that defense
i tell ya
we tackle poorly all game, but then Jenkins lays a textbook tackle on CJ to keep him from getting the first down
then we get our second 4th-and-inches stop of the year at/near the end of the game
and our CBs can be lockdown - Greer is perhaps the most underrated CB in the league. Robinson is young, but promising. Porter - risk taker but certainly a strong 3rd CB. Jenkins is a good player.
And yet watching them get torched on wide open plays in prevent defense is just unnerving.
Nice coverage on the slant on the second to last play.
And outstanding coverage everywhere on the last play.
I thought throwing that pass on 3rd down was going to come back and bite us in the ass
