Was talking about hundley winning last week.

Same deal there then! Williams ran for 100+. Hell, even Hundley himself ran for over 60+ lol.

160 yds rushing and 90 yds passing will win you a football game 1 out of 100 times.

Staff threw for 120 and AA ran for 85 in the win vs the NYG. Pretty similar games.... Things get easier when defense and special teams play well and get scores....

That's one example. Hughes is right about that. If your QB ain't throwing for 100 and your ground game is doing the same, odds are your offense is doing jack shit. Only teams with high level defenses can get away with that week after week.

That was my point, if your def and special teams are rolling it really doesn't matter what your offense does...

All I'm saying is that life is easier when you can run the football. The pressure is off the QB some....

I don't think it's a sign your team is playing good anything. It's just a sign the other team blows.

Need a power back and Oline health. Abdullah can do it but the lack of run blocking and foot injury has messed him up
