... and prevent possible injuries.

So you are down 2 scores, minute to go, on your 28, no timeouts. You need to score fast.
You have 2 guys on the bench who can launch it 50+ yrds.
But instead, you keep your QB who cannot throw it deep anymore, call 3 short passes in the middle, and don't even kill the clock.

It is clear, you have conceded the game. If so, why not just take a knee, and prevent anyone from getting hurt? Either way, it is an embarrassment, but if you take knees, at least you prevent possible unnecessary injuries.

This is straying close to the "We should let Hill or Winston play between the 20s" territory.
