After re watching highlights, Holy cow did we get a break for once

Recommended Posts

We had some major things go our way in the end of that game. 

 

Starting with the 2 point conversion that got called back and sent the Colts back another 10 yards. I don't know about you guys, but I don't think we would've drove the field and scored with a minute left if the Colts didn't get that penalty 

 

Then Webb throws and interception and sets the Colts up for a field goal with 8 seconds left and vineteri misses by like a foot sending the game to overtime 

 

Then we do something ridiculous and punt on 4th and 1 for a net gain of like 15 yards. 

 

Anyways, you all know how it ended. It's nothing short of a miracle that we won this game. I can't remember any recent game in the last 10 or so years where so many things went our way and we won

Heart attack game. And yes they won, and yes I was in ecstasy, but that punt was such a gutless decision it leaves a weird bad taste now looking at McD. He played for the tie! Players decided otherwise.

they historically lose these types of games, defying all odds at times.  In fact, the Bills are losing at a factor of 3 over just standing at the 50 yard line and letting the coin toss decide who wins, rather than attempting to actually play the game.

With all the talk about our punt, the most idiotic move in that game was by Pagano.  How on earth do you sit on the ball after the interception and count on a 43 yard field goal in those conditions?

That bull **** call on the 2-point conversion was 10x the gift that the bull **** call on Von Miller in week 3 was.  I'll take the good bounces.  Bills need to take advantage now.

Isn't the rule, the WR must still attempt to run his pattern?  Once he made contact with Hyde, he just stood there.

 

They had a locker room interview with Hyde on the local news, his comment was he deserved an Oscar for his acting performance. Plus it was within one yard of the LOS.  The Bills got a badly needed xmas gift from the zebras.

You can't block a guy before the ball is thrown. I guess they were lucky the refs called it, but it was definitely a penalty and the only reason the guy was open. 

 

Colts were lucky they made the extra point...

Definitely thought the flag on the 2pt play was going to be for Unsportsmanlike Conduct on the fans throwing snowballs. It was a late flag, so I thought it was after the play and the announcers had just mentioned the fans doing such.

 

Anyone know why (if) the flag was so late? Or was it just not seen? I can imagine the ref throwing the flag on a play like that 5-10 seconds after the act occurred.

We've been *very* lucky this season compared to past seasons. It's nice to experience for once. 

it's strange to see bounces go this teams way.

That's what I thought the flag was for as well.  Don't know if it was that late or the TV people just didn't see it in all the snow.

It was possible that the flag was thrown during the play but even the other refs did not see at first.

i was wondering if the flag just wasn't seen by the crew.  if i remember correctly, so of the players on the field were reacting to the flag before we even knew there was one.

And a Tie is as bad as a loss, killing the season. My wife heard all new combinations of swear words spew from my mouth through the rage! Impressive, given our 37 year marriage. 

No longer on board with McDermott’s ‘Process’.

That is what happened. It was the correct call and no gift.

Now call that against the Patriots who do this all the time,before the ball is thrown.

Colts were very lucky.

Correct me if I'm wrong but does it matter if it's one yard of the LOS if he doesn't attempt to run a pattern at all?  Especially when the ball isn't out?
