It’s the tale of the season so far: We get so close and we start the week off with so much confidence and, for whatever reason when the game’s on the line, whether it’s defensively or offensively, we can’t seem to make that play. For a while, in the first half, it got out of our hands defensively, but we were able to settle down, make some corrections and adjustments, and were able to play solid second-half football. When the game was on the line and they needed to make a play, [the Baltimore Ravens] made it. It’s that simple. We just couldn’t stop them and they were able to score and win the ballgame.
