Rest the starters
 
We are already in the playoffs, we can't win at home with all these injuries. Get the team healthy and try a run on the road, thats our best bet.

Baltimore won't lose another game this regular season, this was our chance to do it and we didn't get it done.

This team doesn't belong in the playoffs. We couldn't run the ball with 10 guys on the line and the defense has shown how porous it is against a quality team. This is Pathetic

We lost because BEN isn't ready to play. To be honest I thought the team wasn't playing bad minus farrior and Ben. He isn't the same with that bum ankle, he needs to sit. If he can't get healthy come playoff time the season is over

Ben has nothing to do with the defense

What's wrong with the D? They've really only given up 13 points, if that, the offense has continually put them in horrible positions with 3 turnovers. They held that last drive if not for a horrible call on Timmons on that field goal. At worst it should be 16-3.

I think ben shouldn't have played, not that Dixon on anyone else would have allowed us to score more, i just think it's more important for us to have him healthy for the playoffs.

Having an offense that is constantly stalling did nothing to help the D, they hung tough for a while, the offense still needs to do their part. All I'm saying is winning out won't improve our playoff seeding, but I still like our chances if making a run if we can get healthy, mostly ben's ankle

Rest all the key starters. Ben especially. Get him out of there. He's playing terrible ball right now.

I can see one and done as well. It's the offense. It stinks. It has stunk for some time now. Injury or no injury to Ben, it stinks. The offense struggles mightily to put up 2 TDs - 3 TDs is extraordinary for them. The offense has a pattern of looking good early and then stalling like a jalopy throughout the rest of the game. It has been a year-long problem. The look promising but don't deliver. I don't blame the D. The D has carried this team for years. It's time the high-priced talent deliver on offense. Also Ben has got to stop turning the ball over. It will end up killing this team.

I don't see one and done unless our first game is Baltimore or NE, those are the only teams I'm worried about
