Whenever you have this many turnovers, that's just undisciplined football, period, and that's on the coaching.
Could also add the Titans and Raiders game, or the squeaker against KC. Or the 'unleash hell' season where we were supposedly going to run wild on the NFL because we had an 'easy' schedule. I'm less worried when going up against the good teams because it seems like they are good at rising to the challenge in those instances. however, whenever we seem to be large favorites, I'm bracing for a major letdown or loss.
One major reason why we have lost this year is a brand new offense that doesn't produce many points. To date, we play more of a TOP, (keep the ball away from the other team), game and its tough in today's game. Most of the teams with winning records score a lot of points and can do it quickly.
Not making any excuses, but we are also in an adjustment year, that resembles a MASH unit.
