Moving the ball with an unlimited amount of free downs isn't difficult.
OK, the message that does not seem to be penetrating your skull.
Our total yards: 503
Our yards gained from penalties: 83 on 10 penalties
Your total yards: 396
Your yards gained from penalties: 135 on 14 penalties
Now let's do some math which I know will be very difficult for you.
So, without the refs, we gained 420 yards, you gained 261. Anyway you cut it, you got beat. You played the best game you could and you just came. up. short.
