Penalties rarely actually matter in determining a winner, and I therefore don't pay them any mind here. But ... in creating an 18-point difference between what this box score projected and what the game actually produced, I would say that penalties played a pretty big role. That said...
...only one team was able to a) pass and b) finish drives. That probably played an even bigger role.
Still, that's a hell of a difference considering there weren't any special teams touchdowns. Strange game. Strange, unwatchable game.
