Another week, and another loss that makes it difficult to find the "winners" out of this bunch.

If that wasn't bad enough, the defense is looking out of place on some plays, but the good news is that should be corrected as players get more comfortable in this system.

Let's get to the winners and losers of this second eight-point loss in as many weeks.
