Thanks for pulling these. He did play gimpy in the TB game but I think the bigger issue is we don’t have any pass rush and no corner can cover when you don’t. We had a good rush last year and as a result we didn’t give up any long, over the top TDs as a team if I recall.He gave up touchdowns in Buffalo (stopped trying when Diggs fell down) and against the Raiders, as well as multiple against Tampa. It varies depending on what site you look at, but his passer rating against generally is over 100. Completion % is higher than normal. Separation (on the few sites that measure it) is also below average for a starter (which means he is allowing more separation than most). QBs are also throwing at him more than many starters around the league. They are doing that because they know he isn't playing well right now.
This site seems to be missing some things (they only credit him with 1 td against for instance, which is blatantly wrong, as are several of their other stats for him), but it's one of the only ones that has advanced stats that doesn't require a membership.

PFF has him at a 59 for the year, which is average at best. It's showing him with 32 targets and 20 receptions against. I'm not able to see touchdowns.

Last year PFF had him at a 87, and in 2018 at a 77. 2019 was a 56, but he didn't play much that year due to his injury, so it's hard to judge that.
The other thing I worry about - whenever a team realizes it’s season is over - is the guys start dogging it - I don’t think that’s happened yet to the defense but we really need a couple of wins right now.
