We were 10th against the pass before playing Ryan Lindley, 4th afterwards. Which ranking do you think is more reflective of how our pass D has played this season? A good unit, but not 4th best in the league, not with that lack of pass rush. An anomaly week against a player who should not be starting at QB for even a high school team should not distort the reality of how the D has performed all year.
I hate to blow your mind but those stats are true.
New England could have blown us out? They did.
And just because you play the cardinals doesn't mean the stats don't count. Twelve other teams played them. Are you adjusting those team's ranking because they played the cards? In fact, four teams lost to the Cards and didn't have good games against them.
Im not saying the jets are good. Just saying theyre doing above average in those two areas.
