Sorry this is very late. Computer/internet problems..
I am lost for words in describing how I feel about this game. On one hand, I am proud of the way the defense played. They played aggressively, hit hard and they did not miss any tackles, and they only gave up one touchdown. On the other hand, something has to be done about the play calling on offense. You can’t run the ball all game, so what does the offensive coordinator want to do with 4 minutes left to go in the game, run the ball. It’s not like your surprising the Baltimore Ravens, of for that matter, even your fans in the stands you were able to figure it out. You scored your point by using the pass. How about trying that.
Does it seem that Bortles has reverted back to his rookie season throwing form? Or is he just trying not to make mistakes and in the end he makes them?
Offense the good:
Offense the bad:
Bortles picked off 3 times (6 for the season).
No rushing game
Defense the good:
3 sacks. All after the Chargers took a 21-0 lead.
Defense the bad:
Special Teams the Good:
49 yard field goal.
Special Teams the Bad:
Blocked 52 yard field goal.
Mistake the cost the game:
Blocked 52 yard field goal with 3:06 left in the game. This led to the game winning field goal by the Ravens.
Missing two golden opportunities inside the 31 yard line without scoring did not help the cause either.
Five Star Players:
57 yards and two touchdowns (the end zone TD was a thing of beauty).
1 interception, 10 tackles.
1 sack, 1 forced fumble. Another solid game from the rooking.
Field goals of 43, 42, 37 and a 54 yarder game winner with 1:07 left in the game.
Next game is against the Indianapolis Colts in London. Hopefully this is the game where the offense and defense, together, play a great game.
On a side note:
LSU coach Les Miles, who was 114-34 (.770 winning percentage) in 12 seasons with the team was fired after the college team started out 2-2 this season. Now you are all saying what does this got to do with the NFL. Nothing really. But, I’ll leaving you with this:
Winners Win, and Losers Lose.
