The Raiders loss was all on the defense, which hadn't hit its stride yet and obviously improved into an elite (when healthy) unit soon after. The Browns loss was an anomaly because of all the ridiculous turnovers and Batch being rusty. The Ravens loss was on special teams and Ben being injured. The only loss I'd blame Tomlin for is the Titans loss where going for the ridiculous field goal was ill advised.
When they handcuff Ben for the first 58 minutes of a game, he won't be able to bail them out all the time. The problem isn't Ben not coming through at the end, the problem is this team plays scared football, then hopes Ben bails them out when they are losing.

Amazing how many people can't wrap their heads around that.
