Let’s start with that Packer game, which aged me about a month in the final quarter.

Eddie Lacy didn’t get it going (14 carries, 40 yards), while Starks saw 10 touches (42 yards). See a 65/35 or 60/40 split going forward.

Davante Adams played 78% of the snaps as the Packers’ WR3. Posted 6-77 (8) and had more targets than Randall Cobb. Near TD was tipped away.

Andrew Quarless played 68% of the snaps and caught the game-winner. No sign of Brandon Bostick so far. Richard Rodgers playing part-time.

Lamar Miller out-touched Knowshon Moreno 17 to 7. Dolphins probably easing Moreno back in, but Miller has played well.

Brandon Gibson was out, which allowed Jarvis Landry to play a season high 78% of the snaps. He reminds me of Anquan Boldin. 6-75-1 (8)

#FreeSankey happened, sort of. He turned 19 touches into a paltry 68 yards and Jackie Battle got the TD plunge. Sigh.
