"Our 3rd quarters were our lowest, but there was also a dip in our opponent's 3rd quarter points as well. Perhaps we made defensive adjustments at halftime, but our adjustments weren't as good as our opponent's adjustments."
It could be the other team made adjustments to our offense ... also, how many times did we get the ball first in the 2nd half? That may be a factor. I think our 4th quarter defense is partlly due to us not have the "stallions" ... worn down, lack o Jimmies and Joes, etc.
