They didn't run the ball the whole 4th quarter, but then they decide to run it with 3:38 and only one timeout? Come on!
Yeah, quite a different tune than when you posted this after the first half

Meanwhile, when I've been complaining that they didn't run the ball enough, now you agree with me. Forget about not running it the 4th quarter, they didn't run it enough the entire game. 6 rushes for westbrook in the first half is unacceptable, especially in 25 mph winds, with 2 of your top wide outs hurt, and when the skins are using a quarters coverage the majority of the game. The 2 runs before the half were BS, a draw out of the shot gun to run out the clock. ... Run the damn ball. When your passing game isn't working ..... try running the ball with your best player. Despite what joe and cowboys fan say, running the ball with Westbrook would have been a better game plan than what they threw out there today. You don't need to be sustaining 15 play drives to run the ball, when you're only down 3-0 then 10-3, it's OK to run the ball more than 12 times with your best player. The previous 3 weeks(Ari, Nyg, Cle) are evidence of what this team is capable of if they commit to the run.
