And Mendy isn't a big time back? Shouldn't be anymore doubts (not that I think they were deserved in the first place) about Mendy, now... I hope.

I will admit, the first half was great, but the second half could have lost it for us, he was WAY too conservative and thus predictable with his play calling.

Ben's 1st INT was a deflection off of Mendenhall (I still think a separate INT stat should be kept that tracks tipped balls like that where the WR is more responsible for it than the QB), and his second INT was basically a punt (and a turn over better than Kapinos could deliver with an actual punt) on a broken play.

The safety was because of Legursky being nervous because he's not our Pro Bowl starting Center.

But 0 production in the 2nd half except the final drive to seal the deal with first downs is all because Arians essentially decided to run-run-run-punt and sit on the lead.

Game ball definitely goes to Mendy, I lost track of how many negative plays he turned into a significant gains because the Jets were in our backfield before he even got the ball.

Brown comes close, what with what was basically his second consecutive game winning catch. He also had that excellent kick return to set up that clock killing drive.

Mendenhall played well but I think I'm going to give it to Antonio Brown. This is the second time in 2 weeks that without his clutch hands on 3rd down we may have lost.

Many others were good.

Mendy and our O-line. They dominated the 1st half.

It was pretty glaring though when Pouncey went down. The 2nd half we couldn't do anything. I now know why Pouncey was a probowler.

I'm guessing Pouncey is done for the year. We'll need Ben's best game ever to win this thing.

his return was questionable, I think he'll be read to play in 2 weeks.
