You just can't say enough about how much Hines means to this team regardless of how many catches he has in a game. Even when he's not getting all the passes he's down there throwing blocks or selling the play and clearing his man out which many times that's a double team.

Ben just has this thing with playing vs Ohio teams that always brings out the best in him and considering the division we play in that's a very good thing.
