Cincy and Baltimore both lose, that helps
But if we play like this again it wont matter. Still in the hunt tho. Hopefully we get our act together.

We have become dependent, can't make it on our own, like we're on football welfare. Not impressive at this point.
The team has been decimated by injuries and we came out stale on offense and the defense couldn't get them off the field. It was a bad game, they happen. The offense got the momentum the team needed to close out the game and as the thread title points out both the Bengals and the Ravens lost. We beat cincy and get some consistency and it's "back in business". Hopefully DeCastro is ready to rock soon. Just one of those games today.

Yeah, I'm hopeful too. Just not impressed right now. I expected a W today vs a 4 and 8 team who had a decimated OL.

Forget Baltimore and Cincinnati. Realistically this team needs to win out. They've lost 3 of their last 4 and played like dogs today. Start with Dallas next week and go from there.
You can't say "forget Baltimore and Cincy" because they both lost. It's like today's loss never happened because those two teams lost, more importantly the Bengals so no you can't say "forget" because those two losing was huge. No excuse for today but things couldn't have gone any better with the other teams in our division.

No excuse for today but this "elite team" was without it's franchise QB for 3 and a half games and a slew of other players. It's a bit of a miracle that we're 7-6 and still in the hunt. I'm tired of reading the above. If this team stayed healthy all year we're in a much better position right now. It's just the nature of the game.

Enough with the excuses allready.
Does it make me happy to criticize this average penalty induced heartless sack of a team?
No, I'm crying in side but I refuse to make excuses.
The Chargers had 3 new OL starting and they played like they were together for years.
This isn't 1 bad game, this is a bad game every other week.
When we lose, we lose bad.
When we win, it's barely.
If players cant step in when starters are injured who's to blame?
