The offense did some good things early on, but they were unable to stay consistent and a lack of play makers really hurt them.
Also, penalties by the offensive line absolutely killed drives.
Fourth Quarter: C-
Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead were able to come to life in the final quarter and provide the run game with a spark, but it was in garbage time.
On the negative side, wide receiver Brian Quick stood by idly and watched a pass get picked off. He made no effort to catch the ball or break up the pass. He has been a disappointing second-round pick so far.
However, Quick did have a nice 39-yard catch on a pass thrown by backup Kellen Clemens, but it was during garbage time with backup defenders in the game.
Third Quarter: C-
How is it possible that the quarterback is playing well and is receiving adequate protection from the line, yet the team has only seven points?
It’s a combination of bad penalties and a lack of play makers.
Penalties have pushed them back and stalled drives, while the receivers are unable to gain yards after the catch.
Second Quarter: B-
The receivers have to do a better job of getting open downfield. These three-yard routes are really getting old, and they aren’t allowing the team to maintain drives.
The offensive line is still doing a solid job providing protection from Vince Wilfork and the New England pass rush.
The offense has done some good things, but it hasn't paid dividends.
First Quarter: A
Chris Givens was able to get open downfield and test the secondary, but it looks like someone else will have to step up since Givens was seen heading to the locker room for an apparent foot injury.
The offensive line is providing solid protection. They allowed heavy pressure on a third-down situation on the second drive, but overall they’re been getting it done.
