Statistically, Nebraska is still quite iffy. They are poor in terms of passing downs offense and questionable in terms of standard downs defense. That defensive tackle Jared Crick is lost for the season only complicates matters further. It isn't too late for the Huskers to pull it together and make a run to win their division, but a) their performance to date doesn't suggest that is likely, and b) if that happens, I'll have a hard time believing it was because they overcame a big deficit once the other team's starting quarterback got hurt. I've been wrong before, however.
