Some fans & sports writers have said AD hasn't made any plays since the ankle injury, but when I rewatched the Redskins game I made a point to watch where AD lined up pre snap, where he moved to post snap, and finally where he was in relation to the plays outcome. I came to a simple realization....the Redskins were staying away from him. Washington used hardly any underneath passing infront of AD. When he dropped into coverage it caused Campbell to look off AD's assignment, and his drops were very nice (when the camera captured them). Now, I also noticed the Redskins O-line give AD a hard time when he tried to blitz up the gut, but he was rarely up on the line during that game. So, while he wasn't a key factor where stats are concerned, he was a factor in coverage, as the Redskins rarely went his direction, and NE basically used him as a coverage backer for most of that game.
