Re: 43 and 42...
I think part of our defensive problems is that we are seemingly never playing defense with a lead. Our defense is better when we are ahead. Our offense has been really good on 3rd down conversions in the past and now is just awful.
I'm not letting the defense off the hook, the offense brought us back to 17-13 and then the defense gives up a TD on the first drive after the half. Still, the offense doesn't 3 and out as much and we are in better shape defensively.
