I said the exact same thing at 2:03. I understand playing conservative with the lead. You don't want to make mistakes that give away the game. But by the same token, there are smart plays to run against a defense that loads up the box.
And it's not like JB needed to read the D and change the play. The Browns weren't disguising anything in the second half, they were just daring us to run on first down - and we did, just about every time.
Remember the screen that Doyle dropped? We know it's in the playbook. Play action pass to the TE. You can't get much more conservative and it's completed 99% of the time to run clock, even if it goes for no gain.
Again, I haven't re-watched the second half but it looked we were playing prevent D the entire second half too.
I would normally agree, but Wilson has not been his usual self this season and is struggling, with the possibility of Baldwin not playing (or being limited) with a groin issue he may struggle to score points.
Will have to watch his ground game though...
