...because your link disproves this statement. Up by 19 in the 3rd Schaub starts the 80 yd TD drive (i.e. on 1st down) with a pass, follows it up on a 2nd and 12 with a 35 yd pass and gets 65 of 80 yds through the air.
Or we can look at the 1st Titans game 3rd qtr up 21-7: 75 yds 4 passes 3 runs including a 28 yd TD pass on 3rd and 5 inside FG range.
Or there is the Denver game 3rd qtr up 24-11 on our 28. 72 passing yds for a TD - 1 rush for no gain.
