The flip side of that is they're hanging tough with the good teams too.
They're in every game though (except for that Green Bay game, that was a 2012 season aberration if ever there was one.) and I think they can win Thursday. They may not. This was a bad time to play 5 tough quarters against a lousy opponent but they've responded well to wake up calls so maybe this works out for the best.
Don't worry, the defense should be well rested, they only played about 2 quarters.
