Missed FG, and if there were more than 3 seconds left when they had the ball at the 1 yard line, they likely score there too. 26-33 points is a more realistic reflection of their true offensive output. Newton was extremely good by every subjective and objective measure.
RE: your Edelman comment, he still looks like a walking corpse; he isn't significantly healthier/faster/quicker than he was last season.
Admittedly new to this, but was Edelmans “fuzziness” something that happens a lot? I kept thinking he needs to get checked out. Then the guy that played in the 1980s inside me was “nah, he’s good”. I didn’t realize just how tough he is.
