RENO — It was a familiar theme for the Warrios: too many mistakes, too many missed opportunities. The 14-0 lead was written in smoke, especially with the Colin Kaepernick-led running attack.
There were short punts. Fumbled punt returns. A touchdown nullified by a penalty. A touchback nullified by a penalty. Good field position nullified by a penalty.
And when the Warriors needed to make a defensive stand, they could not prevent a 6-minute drive that culminated in an insurance-padding field goal.
