Often times, O.D. alone was enough.
The best an opponent can do against us was Lewis who had 3 catches for 40 yards and 2 TDs.
Graham beat him all by himself with 8 catches for 82 yards and 2 TDs.
O.D. & Casey added 9 for 77; the Jags had no other output from their TEs/FBs.
The only matchup we lost was to the Bears, when we attempted 7 fewer passes and O.D. didn't play. They had 2 more catches for 5 more yards.
What I was referring to was obvious holes in midfield that our D has a terrible time defending. Good TEs led by effective passers have taken routine advantage of this deficit.
