Last year's game against the Taperiots.... a good game, yes?
They kept Brady on the sidelines.
Yes, obviously, the difference was that the offense scored TDs (everyone agrees with that), but keeping the ball for longer is not a bad thing.
7-7, 20th in scoring. Not winning football. .
6-3 before BB's injury.
Scoring offense ranked TWO places higher than Arians offense, even after BB missed three games.
