1. The defense stepped up, especially on 1st down and in the 3rd quarter. Utah did have some success on 3rd downs, though.
2. The offense can only get better on passing downs, mainly because you can't get much worse.
3. The offensive line had a bad day in pass protection and in the running game. The line yards are way too low and the sack rate is way too high.
