Hollow victories when you allow almost 900 yards of offense in two games.
Their offensive line looks not as good as last year as well.

Nah. All victories count the same. No one expected them to be as dominant as last year, yet they still win. Their O line looked pretty good in the second half with three long drives, especially the game winning one when it counted most. They picked up several blitzes very well, including on the TD to Schoen. That matters less than the fact that they are almost impossible to score against in the second half. Nine points allowed in the second half in two games. 29 in total, just one point more than last year’s 13.5 per game.
