I'd rather have the offense close out the game like last night than have to come from behind to win it late. The last drive last night was a thing of beauty, between Ben converting thirds into firsts and Dwyer having his way running the rock. That drive is every bit as impressive as a come from behind drive; it won't get the publicity, because it didn't change the scoreboard in any fashion.
Give me that all day, every day over having to put together a 2 minute drill to win. This was a 4 minute drill that was as impressive as a comeback drive. Killing 4 minutes and keeping the defense on the sideline is a good thing.
My point is not that the D should not receive the blame, I just find it funny that Eli is receiving the accolades when all he did was toss a rainbow in the direction of a guy who was so far open, even after slowing down he wasn't even close to being touched by the D.
