Oh, boy. Looks like you had some insight. Kaep sparked the offense but the damn defense took a dip when it mattered most. The last 3 years, it seems, we cannot get both sides of the ball clicking at the same time.
There is a lot of truth to this as well. And, a lack of offense can also, in turn, put additional pressure on the D to play a perfect game. Plus teams we play in the playoffs know how to exploit our weaknesses esp. in the secondary (cough, Wilson deep to Baldwin/Kearse, cough, Flacco to everybody, cough).
