duncja Posted September 28, 2009 Share Posted September 28, 2009 Props to the defense for keeping us in the game as long as they did.The bend don't break isn't pretty, and as actually quite frustrating to watch, but up until late in the 4th quarter, the Patriots had been held to 16 points, including forcing 4 red zone trips into field goals.This defense is not going to dominate the highlight reel. This isn't going to be a top 5 defense with big plays week in and week out... but this defense is enough to win. Our defense was on the field for almost 40 minutes. Our offense is loaded with weapons, yet we were 2/9 on 3rd down. If you do not convert 3rd downs, you can't move the ball. Plain and simple. This entire game, defense carried this team.
