LOL, you have to use the fucking timeout there. That's just idiotic.
You really think so? The game would be over if they got tackled inbounds, even with 18 seconds on the clock.

99% of the time, I save my last timeout for when I need it for the guaranteed chance at a field goal.

would have also probably been over if they played press instead of gift the saints field goal range by playing useless deep safeties with 6 seconds left

Yeah, you can't take the clock down from 20 to 6 seconds when you aren't in field goal range yet. An incomplete pass there and the game is over, because you're only hope is a Hail Mary at that point with 2 seconds or whatever. If you use the timeout with 20 seconds left, you get 2-3 shots at a sideline route to get those yards. They got lucky because Houston was playing for a deep pass when there was no chance the Saints were going longer than 10 yards with 6 seconds on the clock. There shouldn't have been a defender more than 10 yards off the LOS.
