    Amazing what a difference a guy like AJ Green can have on a game. It's a different offense without him. He's that good, already!

    He can say that all he wants.... they are going to need to be +17 in the 4th just to tie it.

    That's not exactly insurmountable.

    No, but highly unlikely. Especially when its more than you put up in the first three.

    The Rays and the Cardinals say hello.

    Dalton is just a freak in 4th quarters. You cannot deny that.

    Great concentration by Gresham. Him tripping over himself may have allowed him to keep his second foot in bounds.

    That is still the worst rule in football. Unreal. You can catch it. Cross the goal line. Then its ruled not a catch because after you crossed the line you fell out of bounds then lost posession. That is like fumbling after you cross the goal line.

    Only a truly cursed franchise would have that TD overruled.

    If it takes that long to review it, the evidence must not be that conclusive to overrule.

    I'm tired of this team always seeming to be on the short end of the stick with EVERYTHING. Just sick of it.

    That's a bad rule but they called it right. We've benefited from another bad rule a couple of times this year, the tuck rule.

    Clearly not every team. The Mets, the Rockies, I could go on.

    And the thing is... coming back from 17 down to start the 4th quarter is probably not statistically as great as those examples (who were like 95-99%).

    Nonetheless, it's not +17 anymore. It's down to 7 points.

    No team has ever done what either the Carindals or Rays did this year, in the time frame in which they did it. So yeah, every other team in history says hello.

    But you are right, 17 back isn't the same. I am sure its been done more than twice.
