When you give up 19 points on that few possessions from that kind of starting field position, that's terrible defense.
Oh, and the defense again failed to get a single turnover.
The defense shouldn't get all of the blame, but it should get its fair share. The defense was horrible.
I agree totally with this. The offense was bad, but it wasn't the reason the defense was woeful. IIRC, the offense didn't have many 3 and outs or did they turn the ball over putting the D in bad field position.
