Well, of course, the talk will be about Mathews, but the talk about him should be quite a bit different from how it was last week. Two thirds of the passes he threw were complete ones, three of them were for TDs, and he had zero INTs this time. If you wanted to see improvement from him, if you wanted to see him avoid mistakes, there you go.
It may be mentioned that he was up against the league's worst defence, but I did have to like the way that he didn't let pressure get to him. There were a few times that he had Riders in his face, but was able to throw complete passes to receivers who impressed. Sinkfield keeps impressing, Underwood also had over 100 rec. yards with some great catches. And it was appropriate that Tasker, Mathews' former teammate at Cornell, caught the first TD pass Mathews threw in this league. The Cornell Connection should be one to watch.
Aside from when the game was out of reach and that Dressler TD, the defence got it gone. They allowed short gains, but got the job done.
And on special teams, Medlock was perfect on FGs and converts. And that punt block by Gainey may have been the turning point in this one:
I guess you could say that Early... wasn't early enough. 8)
