    Burkhead is the anti-Kevin Faulk when it comes to making clutch third downs.

    Didn’t lead with the head, so no ejection.

    Hit too high. I think the problem there is it is called so inconsistently, but if they get you...they get you

    Clock should be reset to 22, given the trickle down was post catch, so to speak

    Such a stupid fucking rule. Harmon has to judge his gravitational fall to time the hit. 1 sec earlier it is a clear hit. Silly

    I was surprised Watson didn’t try to get closer to the LOS, but it didn’t matter — he can’t theow it 60 yards in the air, evidently.

    Dirty? You have to be kidding. It is a penalty. But he didn't spear him or anything dirty. He was coming in on a player who had jumped vertical. He aimed for his mid section but as Hopkins fell his shoulder head entered the target zone not the mid section. You are allowed to hit WR in the air, he just hit the wrong area.

    Wins that give BB plenty to talk about on Monday are the best.

    Ugly second half; hurts to lose Hill who looked good but it's still a W.

    Get a grip---it's fine to defend the penalty call (I did the same) but it is hardly 'dirty' by any knowledgeable description either.

    I guess its a penalty under the confusing new rules, but no, not even a little dirty.

    Relieved they won...

    Romo and Nantz were incredibly annoying. Muted it with about 3 mins to go.

    He deliberately went high at a receiver who was already in the air when he launched. It’s not Jack Tatum or Chuck Cecil level, in the sense he didn’t purposely hit the guy in the head with the crown of the helmet, but by 2018 standards, that’s a dirty play.

    Three fluke/unlikely turnovers kept the game close - very good effort on the defense and felt good about the offense, especially given how good the Houston defense was last year.

    That's just not what happened, as others have alluded to...and I seriously doubt many (if any) will have the take you do on it.

    Only real surprises were how horrible Watson was, and poor special team play (muff and kick off coverage / strategy)

    Solid win by the Pats. Opening day, bunch of new guys, tough opponent. Plenty of mistakes and things to shore up, but a nice start to the season, the Hill injury notwithstanding.

    It's a penalty. Not close to dirty. Many other penalties have been uncalled all day. What sucks is we have this being the only call for the new rule and it's at a pivotal end of game moment.

    That’s not a new rule — they didn’t call targeting. Hit to the head of a defenseless receiver has been 15 yards for several years.
