In response to ccsjl's comment:
So the Pats D caused Bradys 16 INTs in those 12 games?
The pats D limited possessions and time you have to score.
When you are limited by possessions and time this tends to make you have to score quickly, pass more and press more.
When you have to score quickly you become one dimensional and alot of your options are also limited. Think 2 minute drill except for you are running 8 or 9 ,if you prefer, of them due to time. Also when the O is on the bench for 15-20 minutes real time, it's difficult to get in rythem.
Allowing a qb to score on 50% of their possessions, whether Fg's or Td's causes you to have to score on more than 50% of your possessions. Throw in the limited time and limited possessions, you are pretty much scr#wed.
So, in a nut shell, yes. It could very well caused turn overs because when you can take your time and not force things, you should be less prone to mistakes.
Good thing you didn't mention that a good offense will keep possession of the ball, moving it and controlling the clock, which keeps a bad defense on teh sidelines. Whether it's 5:50 for a TD, or 6:45 for a FG, it keeps that D on the sidelines, right? Better yet, it's BEST that you didn't include that a top ranked/world beating offense WILL do this. Especially is said top ranked/world beating QB is scoring TD's 50% of the time, right?
PHEW! Glad I could help out!
