He tried to be cunning and throw it, thinking that everyone would expect a run due to his comments on feeding Lynch.
Ironically, this could be very good for Lynch's ROS prospects. Gruden is burning out fast here, showing the void between his armchair commentary and real in-game coaching. The boos will run down endlessly if he does this again, so I see a lot of Lynch touchdown plunges going forward.
Lynch remains an RB2 and a hold. This is the first real letdown week, but the touchdown dependence is real.
