I’m with you. The wind was strong, but was at their back if they were to kick it. I understand the choice to go for it on the 4th and goal from the 1 prior to that, down 21-20, ideally making it 28-21 with a score and 2 pt conversion.. 4 mins left.
To be fair, it was roughly 3rd and 8 from the 25… not the 15, after they got ball back after a strip sack… 2 mins left… run up the middle all day. They’ve got a solid kicker, with a strong wind at their back. Slant was picked off on a diving play by the safety… amazing play. Jeff fumbled the game away at the end of the day. Would have been a 40-45 yard field goal on 4th with no gain.
They couldn’t get anything going in the 2nd half, after completely dominating the first half on the ground. Props to Carroll for adjusting after the first half, and props to Jeff for being in a game no one gave them a chance in.
The gap in the north is slimmer than we thought.
