To "validate" a loss, one needs only to check the score and see if it still says you lost. Maybe OP meant does it "explain" or "illustrate" why we lost. In any case, I don't think so. I watched the game twice, and IMO we lost because we had to settle for field goals, couldn't covert 3rd downs (3-11), couldn't run the ball, couldn't stop the run in the 4th quarter, and were -2 in turnovers. A little improvement in one or two of those areas and we win the game.
