Not enough run defense?
On the other side of the ball, there’s a gap that gets exploited time and time again. This week, the exploitation came courtesy of Mr. Guice Mr. Peterson. The same plays that McCaffrey was trying to make up the middle were being made by the Redskins.
One could argue that it was because there were two running backs carrying the workload for the Redskins rather than one, but the same argument could be made for offensive line protection. After all, Allen did get sacked seven times on Sunday, so it’s evident that the offensive line still doesn’t have it together. Then again, the Panthers run defense did let a Redskins rookie have the best day of his career.
