Even on 4th you could spike it.
This is an amazing strategy. Up by 9 points they burn the time all the way to zero then just let them score on the free play game over you win by 3-2-1 it doesn't matter you win.
I did not watch the SB or any highlights. If this strategy was employed the NFL will have that fixed real quick. First the play never happened so no time is taken off, then maybe making it a stricter penalty inside of 2 mins or 4 mins.
