Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.
In his first year with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, the gunslinging Matthew Stafford is having himself a bounce back campaign, ranking No. 1 with an 11.4-yard average depth of target (aDOT) and No. 5 with 8.9 adjusted yards per attempt.
And he has a strong collection of wide receivers.
Kenny Golladay has gone for 100-plus yards or scored a touchdown in five of seven games. Marvin Jones Jr. is less consistent than Golladay, but is tied for No. 12 with five end-zone targets, and only five wide receivers (including Golladay) have more touchdowns than Jones does with five. And Danny Amendola has been an unexpectedly important contributor in the slot.
As a unit, these receivers have great complementarity and cohesion. The cornerbacks they’re facing, not so much.
