You can fall asleep with a 28-point lead and let a beaten opponent start to believe.
You can rack up all the dumbass penalties in the world, from popping guys five yards out of bounds to pulling facemasks on key stops to killing drives with offensive PIs.
You can make a Mid-American Conference backup quarterback look like an All-American starter by giving up big plays and key conversions through the air.
You can do all these things and still win on the road – so long as you have D.J. Pumphrey on your football squadron. Hell, you can even cover the spread.
