First the Falcons don't run down the game clock on their last drive, not even letting the play clock go under 10 seconds. Then Julio makes a ridiculous catch to put them in FG position and seal the game. Then they pass on second down in field goal position up by 8 with minutes left and that is the worst call ever in the history of football. They had the game won. A chip shot field goal put them up by 8 and it is over.

I just don't understand.

yeah right, Vince is going to be handing him the Goodell trophy


I meant Goodell.

It's the Lombardy for the team and the Rozelle for the mvp.

Wonder how he feels now?

Wow. What a game. I despise both teams but I'm so glad I didn't turn it off when Atlanta was up by 25. What a choke job.

Yep. Should've kicked that FG in the fourth...



When was that? On the series where they got the sack and then the penalty? It would have been 64 yards at that point. The end to that series changed the outcome of the game, no doubt.


Yep, that's the one.

I just don't understand.



They would have been up 11 with a fg there I think.

On that second down pass where Ryan got sacked he got slapped right in the face mask during the sack. As flag happy as the refs were in the second half, a penalty there makes it first and goal instead of 3rd and 23.

So the outcome might not have been great but it could have just as easily been the play that sealed the game in the other direction. Lots of folks didn't even notice it.

There were plenty of horrific decisions made in that 4th quarter, but this is really the one that killed them.

2-11-NE 23
(3:56) (Shotgun) 2-M.Ryan sacked at NE 35 for -12 yards (98-T.Flowers).


Taking a knee two times would have been a better coaching decision.

Very entertaining game. Doesn't mean anything now but I have two questions:

First, on that two point convert to tie the game, did the ball ever actually break the plain of the goal line? The receiver (Hamondola - not sure how to spell his name) appears to have gotten in but did the ball?

Second question, on the overtime touchdown, wasn't the running backs knee down before the ball crossed the goal line?

Here was the second worst decision:

3-1-ATL 36
(8:31) (Shotgun) 2-M.Ryan sacked at ATL 25 for -11 yards (54-D.Hightower). FUMBLES (54-D.Hightower) [54-D.Hightower], RECOVERED by NE-97-A.Branch at ATL 25. 97-A.Branch to ATL 25 for no gain (65-C.Chester).
