Re: ESPN Insider: AFC North Holes
In both the Oakland and the Tennessee games, the offense had a chance to seal the game up by converting a short third down. In both instances, BB missed an open Heath Miller. If those two catches are made, the defense never sees the field (because, the offense kneels & kills the clock).
It is a perfect example of the offense AND defense both being culpable for a loss.
Bad teams point to the other unit (i.e. offense blames defense), but on this team, both sides took responsibility (which is what good teams do).
