If you can’t stop them on D, what good is a field goal?The risk is not worth the reward. The model is overvaluing a TD and undervaluing the risk of being tied in an actual football game.
I enjoyed it.Nice garbage points for those of us with NYG-DEF in fantasy.
It changes the way this last bit plays out. Buffalo completely controls the game.If you can’t stop them on D, what good is a field goal?
They had given up 10 points in the 2nd half, why would you not bet on your D?If you can’t stop them on D, what good is a field goal?
If you can bet on your D, then you can hope to hold them from the 3 yard line in the event you don’t score.They had given up 10 points in the 2nd half, why would you not bet on your D?
Going for it was very stupid.
Or you hope to hold them from the 25 up 3 points.If you can bet on your D, then you can hope to hold them from the 3 yard line.
Its a terrible shame that John Harbaugh, who never publicly shades other coaches and organizations, is now going to be subject to a lot of unfair scrutiny for his in game coaching.What a shit show for Baltimore.
Even amongst de rigueur dickishness of football coaches, Harbaugh is a breed apart.Peters and Harbaugh jawing.
YikesSteelers are 1-3 and play Bills, Bucs, Dolphins and Eagles going into their bye.
I’m pretty sure last year or two years ago the Falcons blew a game when Todd Gurley accidentally scored when the defense was letting him. I think it was against the lionsHas anyone ever pulled off a Polish defense for a FG attempt?
2 rushing TDs though!3 INT debut for Pickett. One under thrown deep ball, one back breaking, killer INT, and one Hail Mary INT. That's gonna be a fun stat line to recover from.
At least they got the playcall in quickly, so they only wasted about 7 or 8 seconds but also had a chance at the end zone instead of a spike.SPIKE THE FUCKING BALL DETROIT.
10-15 extra seconds. Incompletion anyway. As usual.
My Falcons are right there with you!We, the Jets, may be the worst 2-2 team in the history of the NFL or professional football for that matter but damn it! We are 2-2!
It was more like 11 seconds. That spike should have happened at around 1:20. Instead, they ran a play that ended at 1:09.At least they got the playcall in quickly, so they only wasted about 7 or 8 seconds but also had a chance at the end zone instead of a spike.
Coincidentally, a total of 1,073 college games in the Big 12 have finished 48-45.
