I was thinking about this & went back to the play by play.
Giving up this TD wouldn't have been so bad, if our offense stepped up & answered with a TD. Instead, we went 3 & out.
Then our defense forced a 3 & out.
Then we threw that INT... & the Patriots drove 60 yards & scored. We're down by 18 at this point.
Still early in the game, if our offense scores here, we're ok.
Instead, we get down to a 4th & 1...... Walter picked up the first down, but we got a bad spot. So on 4th & 1, we decide to catch the Patriots off guard & go deep.
Well, didn't work out to well for us. We turn it over on downs, on our 33 yard line. One play later & we're down by 24.
So, in hindsight. I can see why the defense would get a pass & why our QB is getting a little heat.
