Stats don't show you everything.
For example, Lechler had a punt blocked (right off the bat) so he had a punt for 2 yards. That dragged down his number.
Or he had the ball inside the 5, the coverage team was there, but somehow missed the ball that rolled into the endzone for a touch back.
And like I said, Jones saw minimum pressure and therefore had more time to do the job.
The snap is also important. If it's too high, or if it rolls on the ground.
Can you believe that?
I actually saw a couple of snaps by the Raiders that rolled on the ground.
