The Ravens had a time out left.There was no need to decline the penalty. The Ravens had used their last timeout prior to the penalty. The clock was going to run from 240 down to the 2 minute warning. The Pats might as well take the free 5 yards. In this case, there was no advantage to declining the penalty. Could the college ref that occasionally pops in here please confirm but that is my understanding. I think they changed the rules after the Pats Titans playoff game last year.
My game balls: Meyers, Jackson, offensive line as a whole.
