At least this one was much closer than last week's 49-20 embarrassment to the Philadelphia Eagles. But no less frustrating.
"It was very winnable," said Pryor, 11 for 26 for 122 yards. "We're close. But we got a blocked punt and an interception they took down to the 4. You can't win like that. We've got to learn."
Allen said his team was focused and determined to win a game after last week's rout.
But they struggled at key times, especially settling for the 24-yard Sebastian Janikowski field goal and a 20-14 lead when they could have been up 10 points.
Rashad Jennings had an opening run on first-and-goal, but it closed quickly. Pryor threw an incompletion on the next two downs, the last one from the 6 after a procedure penalty against tackle Khalif Barnes.
