If keeping the defense off the field and letting them rest was a goal they were the best in the league at it. Phat Pat still got winded though. Need to pick up the INTs.

NFL.com has us at 19th against the pass with 218.4 yards.
Everything else seems to check out.
I am very worried about our secondary against the pass-happy teams alive in the NFC ... but all in all, the fact that we stay indoors and we could host two games, I am very confident.
