As you said, worst case the punt is a touchback and it 's a 15 yard net, but at least you'd still have Pittsburgh backed up in a low scoring/field position type of game. Not getting it on 4th and 22 you give Pittsburgh pretty decent field position.
Oh I agree that you should punt there, just trying to think along with Marvin lol. The way the defenses were playing I think both coaches knew something crazy was going to win the game.
