    Last week we were one of only two teams to win despite having more turnovers than our opponent, and the only team to win despite a -2 in turnovers.

    Today, we were -2 (-3 if you count the blocked field goal) until the final play of the game, which was essentially unnecessary since an incomplete pass there ends the game pretty much anyway.

    It will be interesting to see how many teams won this week despite having more give-aways. It's never that many in any given week, and it's rare to lose the turnover battle on the road and win.

    Speaking of turnovers:

    It looks like O'Callaghan was playing to block someone on the outside shoulder, and didn't block down, allowing the defender to penetrate between Hochstein and O'Callaghan, where Hoch was blocking down to keep the middle clear. Not knowing who necessarily should block which defender, rule of thumb is you block from the inside out - I'll hang this one on the rookie OT.
