A three & out in the second half would have been great.... I don't know that the offense would have scored. I'm thinking they wouldn't have the way they looked. But the point remains. Time & the score was against us in the second half & the defense didn't help.
They gave up 13 points in a half. That can't be considered good football. We can't expect our team to give up 26 points a game & win many games.
They played their a55 off in the first half. Not so much in the second half. The exact opposite of what they did vs San Diego & Tennessee.
Ok, so if the offense scores 50 points... Defense gives up 51 through 3 quarters...
4th quarter comes. Offense can't score. Defense pitches a shut out "when we need it".
You're telling me, you're going to say it's an issue that the offense didn't score in that last quarter?
