Have to Get Back on Track

Hurts (3,192 yards 19 TD 10 INT) ranks eighth in the league in QBR and while he has not been picked off in the last two games, he only has one TD. Swift (822 yards 4 TD) has only totaled 52 yards in the last two games and Brown has 17 catches in the last two games for 208 receiving yards but not TD.
