The thought did go through my mind but I find it hard to believe that the loss of 1 DB results in 378 passing yards. I was under the impression that there would not be a huge drop off from Moss to Roberts.
Our depth must really suck if 1 injury can cause that much damage to our defense.
We replace a 3 year starter with a situational backup (mostly dime packages) against a team that has historically carved up our pass defense, especially one player that Moss likely would have had primary responsibility for defending. I firmly believe their passing yards would have been somewhere around 25% less (284 yards or so) with a more experienced defender in a critical position against their best receiver.
Yeah, Roberts is talented but do you really think that all the experience doesn't matter?
And I also point out that our O-line was subpar leading to little running room and no pass protection.
