2. CeeDee Lamb, WR
With a chance to get to 1,000+ yards this season, CeeDee Lamb didn’t deliver. For Lamb, catching the ball in Week 15 wasn’t as easy as A, B, CeeDee. (Sorry, had to.) The receiver had three passes dropped that should have been easy catches. One specific play was a potential highlight moment for Prescott. The quarterback threw a beautiful ball through two defenders that literally hit Lamb in the hands, and he dropped it.
Sure, the sun may have played a factor in some of the drops. But you can’t be a top receiver and have three dropped passes in a game. Lamb only had 50 yards in Sunday’s contest.
In the month of December, he’s gone 14 for 23. And on the season as a whole, he has caught just 64% of his total targets. We know that Lamb has the potential to make momentum-changing plays. But, in this game, he seemed to be stopping the momentum in a lot of instances. Lamb’s eight drops on the season are the most by a receiver in the entire NFC.
And, he knows it, too…
While we wish he played better, we do have respect for players who can admit their faults. We know Lamb is a great player, but dropped passes won’t be forgiven in the playoffs.
