How bad we were on 3rd down was stunningwhen guys are looking in bad spots they end up reacting late. even on that long run the LB has to be leveraged better, but if his eyes were looking in the wrong place and the RB with that speed hits the hole he is in trouble.
Had the 3rd down D been better we get off the field 5-6 more times and its a whole better outcome.
Yep, it’s an old obvious cliche but there’s a lot more to defend on 3rd and 2 than 3rd and 8.It's because they were consistently losing 1st and 2nd down, at least in the first half.
