Griffin played well enough to win, but he also wasn't terribly accurate with a lot of his throws. Yes his recievers must catch all balls they can get their hands on, but a good amount of Griffin's throws were behind his recievers, and when your recievers aren't playing well a QB needs to be as accurate as possible to help the struggling recievers out.
You mean blueprint on how to beat any elite QB. Keep them off the field. Hardly groundbreaking or some master blueprint. And yes, Griffin wasn't as accurate as he could have been, doesn't even come close to excusing those recievers for letting the team down. Embarassing performance by the WR corp.
