The Skins led the NFL in rushing. They don't do that with an average O-line. Time to give that crew the credit it deserves.
Cleveland not adjusting at all to the playaction pass was another reason, they literally made no adjustment to the playaction pass and we had a field day. The oline was otherwise overpowered versus the run considering the opposing D didn't have to deal with the threat of the option.

The Skins had a QB that allowed them to run a misdirection offense which kept defense guessing and off-balance. No way they amass those numbers running a traditional offense. The read option masked the deficiencies on the oline.
