For whatever reason Rodgers, Newton, Romo, and now Brady just seem to have off days when they played us. Typical huh?
As I was pondering that, I thought of something and if it has been brought up I appologize.
Of course this game featured the #1 D vs the #1 O. Much has been said about Sherm/Brady, Welker, TE's, Clock management, blah blah blah.
I prefer to bring the scope of the game down to the final 3 minutes, with the winner and loser still undecided.
With 3 minutes left in regulation looking at 4th and 3 deep in Seattle territory, Pete elects to trust his defense and punt the ball away. Highly risky, but the best call.
The #1 O in the NFL really needed just 1 First Down to close out the game. 1 lousy First down. Our D hadn't forced one 3 and out yet and New England was known for only having (3) 3 and outs so far this season.
We all know New England failed to get the 1st down, the 1st 3 and out of the game for us.
We score, kick it off again, and then New England went 4 and out, turning the ball over on downs.
Back to back, no 1st down allowed. Victory fair and square to Seattle as when it was money time, we rose to the top as our opponent was unable to move the ball.
Let no one disrespect this win. The Seahawks are for real and I predict a Seattle victory Thursday.
