OR being such a good shut down corner, you are forcing the team to throw to the INT machine. Lets not pretend Howard had a zero passer rating. They work well opposite of each other. Jones blankets his WR so that makes the QB look Howards way. Howard has this great ability to run in stride with the WR, back off half a step so the WR and QB think the WR has his seperation, then when the ball is thrown, Howard starts tracking it. So as the WR is starting to play the ball, Howard knows exactly where it is and turns it on just as the WR lifts a touch. Therefore Howard gets himself in perfect position.Agree
Shutting down receivers is great but INTs are game changers
Its MUCH easier when Jones has great coverage on his guy.
