To me this will be the biggest key to our success on Sunday. If you notice, the game vs. Cincy, once AJ caught the long ball for a TD, it allowed Arian to start going crazy. If AJ comes up with the earlier stab at the endzone this game is over before halftime.
Does anyone remember when AJ started going bananas against Bmore when we forced overtime? We began to run even better and then in the 4th quarter the Ravens got tired.
But really the importance of Yates and AJ connecting early is because we have to keep Yates out of 3rd and long. He's not good at converting 3rd downs. He really only had that miracle run but nothing significant after that.
