The original post of this topic shows that Cush got frustrated, and why would he? at least he tries....so what if the D don't force the Turn over? it's not their job to score the last time I check. The Ravens scored Like 13 points when the game mattered....get with the program, dude!!
Baltimore's first possession after the half, they drove 80 yards for touchdown. Why was the defense so tired?
What was an 8 point game (17-9) now becomes a 15 point game. That's the kind of pressure that changes your whole offensive game plan. Makes some teams one dimensional.
The offense then burns 3 minutes off the clock, no score. The defense allows the Ravens 3 minutes, then punt, The Texans offense burns another 4 minutes then punts. Third Qtr is over.
The Ravens take the ball at their 30 yard line, burn 6 minutes off the clock, travel fifty-some yards & kicks a field goal. It's now an 18 point game with 9 minutes in the 4th Qtr.
At this point, neither the offense or the defense has done anything to get the Texans closer to winning this game.
We take the ball at the 20, burn 4 minutes to travel 30 yards, then turns it over on downs at the 50. It's now a 3 possesion game with 5 minutes remaining.
25 yards & 4 minutes later, the defense allows another field goal. It is now a 21 point game. We need three TDs with a minute left.
When it counted, the defense did not help us win.
When it counted, the offense did not help us win.
