Yes. I'd stick to run-heavy play calling if down by 21 or less


We're just as likely to go 3-and-out passing the ball, or else 1-2 first downs and then punt, which doesn't wear down a defense or run the clock. If we're going to be a physical team, then we might as well win or lose being a physical team right now. That's also more likely to lead to an effective passing game in any case. Maybe we can get points off of sustained drives and then one or more quick scores off of play action rather than hoping to string together a half of short-yardage passing drives, which is what we usually seem to fall back to when we decide to play comeback with pocket passing.
