Just my 2 cents.

that's what I thought the flag was gonna be. s**t is fixed.

Did you notice the Ryan fumble? Arm and ball went forward. Refs didn't bother to even review it.

NFL is rigged.

Woke up with a smile, thankful I'm not a Falcons fan.

So if he called a run, with no effect, the FG missed, everyone would complain that it was to conervative.

Yep. Remember when we ran the ball against the Giants in the NFC championship game many, many moons ago? Yeah, the Roger Craig fumble? Unfortunately, anything can happen.

Honestly, when halftime approached and they had similar lead when they played against the 49ers a few years ago, I had this funny feeling, history was going to repeat itself once again.

Nothing is ever 100%. The theory is tho if u run it then kick a fg, sure a fumble or missed fg can happen, but it's less likely of an outcome than passing it and getting sacked to the point where that fg is in the 50/50 range.

What, no Brady Rule? Oh wait, that only applies for Tom.

check the tape. he moved forward at the exact time the center started to snap the ball.


He was offsides.

He was offsides, but not as bad as the Ravens vs 49ers in the bowl. As my uncle says "The guy was in the backfield shaking Kaps hand before the ball was snapped" lol.

if you go to the replay, Freeney doesn't move forward until the ball starts moving. Unless they called neutral zone, it shouldn't have been a flag.

Even if you want to go by that they scored, they were screwed out of a blocked extra point earlier in the game. That play was as borderline as it comes.

I gotta agree with Chaz it was a good jump on the ball. But I could see how the refs would get that wrong, it was almost simultaneous.
Lack of leadership by Matt Ryan also a factor
BTW something I haven't seen talked about is Quinn losing the final timeout via challenge on the Edelman play. Falcons with the ball and about a minute left with a timeout is a huge difference compared to 50 something seconds and no timeouts.

The thing is...

About 40 things had to go perfectly RIGHT for the Patriots to win and perfectly WRONG for the Falcons to lose.

And those things ALL happened.
