Game of Adjustments | by Jay

From the Pitt Trib-Review:

The night got off to a promising start, as Lee hauled in a 39-yard TD toss from Tyler Palko on Pitt's opening drive.

"Looking back on that first drive, I thought the game would turn out a lot differently," said Lee, who made four catches for 63 yards. "But they changed their secondary, putting the corner up on me tighter and rolling the safety over."
Yep. After the touchdown, Lee had only three more catches for another 23 yards. If you graphed his production against the clock, it would look like this:

Nurse...? Nurse!

His final catch came earlier than last call in a London pub. Obviously, neutralizing an opponent's best receiver is bery, bery good.
