vjax only caught 2 passes when norman was covering him and that was for 22 yards. jackson caught one when beason had him (for 4 yards) and another when nakumara was covering him (21 yards).
Norman was getting abused by V. Jax most of the 1st half, it was almost painful to watch. But im not too worried since he is a rookie. V Jax had 46 yards, yes, i understand. But everytime I watched the matchup Jax was open a good majority of the time. 2nd half he looked better as he settled in. PI was bull. that is all.
i wouldn't consider that getting abused. in fact norman wasn't targeted very much at all regardless of who he was covering and didn't do bad at all when he was targeted.
