Coming into Sunday’s game between the New England Patriots and Las Vegas Raiders, wide receiver Darren Waller was expected to pose the biggest threat to the Pats’ defense with Henry Ruggs inactive. However, New England’s secondary locked him down. Until the fourth quarter, Waller had zero catches and was covered by nearly every cornerback and safety on the Patriots at some point. The Raiders WR finished the game with just two receptions for nine yards on four targets.
Sierra Goodwill and Evan Lazar discuss the effort displayed by New England’s defense and where there’s still room for improvement.
