A 50 plus yard FG isn't something you want to rely on to win a game, especially when you're away and had the lead the whole game.

We had great field position after the Rams missed their long attempt in OT, but our offense didn't do much with it and left a lot to be desired with our last possession leading to the missed FG by Akers. Could the offense have helped put him in a better position to succeed? Hell yeah, unfortunately they failed.
Yea I guess the O did fail, but the play calling got REAL conservative, so maybe if you AREN'T going to execute, at least call a play that has a chance, cuz you MIGHT get lucky. If you call conservative crap and miss the FG, the blame goes 50% to the coaches. (How far do you expect a QB draw to go? Or Gore up the middle in the last 3 min when the run game was shut down all day? SMH)
You played it safe and got screwed.
