Hey, let's answer my own question. What happened to the BC offense?

They are #106 in Rushing S&P+ ... which defies all commonly held beliefs about their OL and Dillon. I think he's been hobbled the last 6 games or so, but I also think most teams are taking away the run 1st and challenging Brown to beat them with the pass. He's good and they have some guys in the WR spots. But he's not good enough to carry them. (They are #45 in Passing S&P+.)

They are monumentally bad at 3rd down and long (#117). 3rd and med (#100) is not much better. But the crazy thing is their 3rd down and short ranking at #72. That's bad meathead offense. It also plays into our strengths - we love 3rd and med/long.

That 3rd down % leads to an inefficient offense. They thrive on big plays, mostly on early downs and play action. That will be a test for our secondary.
