5.4 freeze plugs

My 2001 5.4 Triton 1/2 ton 4X4 froze.
I replaced the two outside freeze plugs. When I add water, the water goes straight to the oil Pan. Am I missing some plugs somewhere?

freeze plugs

Thanks so much!
I removed the timing cover to find 2 freeze plugs popped out. I have replaced them and all is well.
I had two mechanic shops tell me the motor was shot after they replaced the freeze plugs behind the motor mounts.
