NFL Thread: Thoughts on the game south of the 49th

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

No probably about it.


Certainly the luckiest! But then to tell the truth would be deflating.

Luck had nothing to do with Brady's performance. It had a lot to do with Edelmann's catch off a Falcon leg, but that was impressive focus nonetheless. In the end, it's a "game of inches": Matt Ryan's arm was just about to move forward on the fumble play, and the last 2-pt conversion made it across the plane by about 10cm. Close, but no cigar, Atlanta.

I wonder if they fall like this year's Carolina next season?

The Patriot's "luck" was in a few of the bounces, and decisions made by Atlanta.

Edelmann's catch was brilliant. There was luck in the bounce that kept it out of the dirt.

The Falcons had the Pats on the ropes. Brady was getting hammered. Then they backed off and went into a prevent setup. All it did was prevent them from winning. Brady suddenly had time and literally picked them apart, which he will do every time given that opportunity. The pass interference to end it all was just a terrible break for the Falcons, a legit call, but just bad timing for that decision by the safety.
