Just sort of comparing the 2 situations.
I too was surprised Denver decided to take a knee instead of throwing a couple passes. I guess they just didn't want to risk a turnover in that situation. Atlanta had all three timeouts remaining. Did Denver have any? The obvious difference is Denver had the luxury of knowing they were, at worst, going into OT, while Atlanta had to get in FG range to avoid losing.
