A couple of times it looked like the route could be jumped on a short pass near the LOS, but nobody broke on the ball. On their WR screen, at least 2 times, the defender just took-on the blocker instead of trying to stop the receiver. The secondary was absolutely giving too much cushion. Better OL pressure would have helped, but the poor tackling was what stood out.

It definitely seemed we were out-sized by their receivers. So I thought by halftime we would be better prepared to tackle. But you're right, we weren't as physical as those winter workout videos led me to believe
