I don't have the game on DVR but we had the ball at what should have been the end of the game. We took our sweet time - ran once, ran twice and then threw.
Here is my issue. If we had thrown downfield (like end of game) no issue. Instead we were slow running the ball, ran as we were running out the clock and then about 40 secs we try to suddenly pick up a first down and throw the ball instead of letting it basically run out........
I think it was poorly played. Run three times, be slow and let the clock run out or be in a hurry-up. To come up with an in-between on 3rd down just isn't smart in my mind.
Then it didn't help with the punt and we were lucky that NE didn't score (yes I credit the defense but we were still lucky)
