Huge game. 3-3 and tied for first with the schedule getting better is so much more palatable than 2-4 and two games back from SD who also has a pretty manageable schedule.
The 3rd down defense has to get better. We had NE in so many 3rd and long situations, right where you want them only to have them convert. Rivers is capable of converting those as well. Also need to score TD's in the first quarter. To many mental errors that lead to missed points.
