Don't Read too much into the 500 Yds Given Up


Here's a link to the Drive summaries from ESPN. http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/drivechart?gameId=301010006

As mentioned in my comments, you'll see that the Titans last 4 drives started in Dallas territory, and all of them were 3 plays or less and less than 1 minute. Thats 4 times the Cowboys get the ball against our D on short rest. Then, look at all of the TItans drives. The offense did not have any drives of more than 5 plays after halftime (Dallas only had 170 yds at halftime), and most of them were 3 plays or less (with 2 TD's to show for it). So, when you are giving a high powered offense like Dallas the ball against your D on 1 minute of rest (or 3 plays), and they're down, you can expect them to put up a whole bunch of yds. I agree the D could've played better, but they were the victims of spending way to much time on the field in the second half. Most of the catches and throws were in tight coverage with their receivers making plays. Those throws turned into interceptions at the end of th game.
