Absolutely no excuse for not throwing a challenge flag there. He might as well have just thrown in the towel.

I think I've heard Pats say that they virtually never move the spot up enough for a first down, which is what you need to win the challenge. I seriously doubt Ernie missed how bad the spot itself was
This. They also probably feel like risking a timeout at your 17 down two scores isn’t the best way to go.

Game v Miami last year was worse given the stakes, but taking out context you have to go back a looooong ways to find a pound for pound effort his bad.

The Chip Kelly shitshow where they collapsed on special teams against another mediocre team at home (2015) is 1B on the list, I think.

Baltimore playoff loss at home in ‘09, but obviously this Broncos team isn’t in that Ravens team’s league.

2006 vs the Jets they lost in a late season rainstorm at home, but, yet again, that Jets team was better than this Denver team.
Don't forget the Sharpe calling the President game.

actually I take it back, they could have ran off another minute w/o a timeout with that loophole unless it was closed
