U act like 11 possessions is a lot, & 2 of them with 40 seconds left in half
So really it was pretty much just 9 including 1 of the drives was a 6 second drive where Allgerier had a very uncharacteristic fumble.
The defense just could not get off the field and give the offense a chance to get into any type of rhythm. The defense greatly shortened the length of the game and the total possessions. I am betting that more possessions and the offense would had started to click. It is hard to travel across the US with such short notice, and an offense really needs to be in sync and clicking and get into a rhythm. Way more than a defense needs to.
