A team red-zone period really highlighted how dangerous the Ducks are due to the number and versatility of their offensive weapons. Given the dual-threat abilities of Marcus Mariota, De'Anthony Thomas, Byron Marshall, Colt Lyerla, Josh Huff and others, the Ducks have the ability to put the pressure on a defense, forcing them to process an endless variety of options in a split-second. ... Marshall continues to show a real propensity for catching the ball out of the backfield. Coaches have said he has the ability to do some of the all-purpose things Thomas can, and Marshall proved that at times today. ... Torrodney Prevot continues to learn the nuances of pass coverage, to complement his pass-rush abilities at SAM linebacker. He had a pass breakup today, for the second day in a row.
