Our defense continues to play extremely well. Jumping out to early leads is causing opposing teams to become pass-centric. The amount of pressure that we are generating from our front four is generating errant QBs throws and decisions. Add those two factors together, and our DBs are having a field day.
Despite losing our #2 rookie WR to injury, our offense is looking great. Brandon Marshall is on pace for 112 receptions and 1,587 yards. The current single-season records for those categories are held by Marty Booker (100 receptions - 2001) and Marcus Robinson (1400 yards - 1999).
That's it for this week. Sound off in the comments to tell us what popped out to you.
