that means our offense had long field too many time and if our #1 ranked defense could have gotten a few 3 and outs our offense would have started in better shape to score.
that is why being a #1 ranked defense based on yards allowed is such a bogus, deceiving ranking.
According to you, stopping a drive and forcing the opponent to punt, even if it pins us back in our own territory, means nothing. 3 and outs are great, but this is the NFL not Alabama vs. Savannah State.
I'm glad you aren't the coach of the Steelers.
