If Bolden waits half a beat and does not jump he catches that in stride. No defender was around him.

I know he cannot run it back, but he would have had a clean recovery.
I’m guessing there aren’t many versions of that play where you’d expect to have that half a beat to wait.

Glad they showed a little bit of fight at the end. Come home, get healthy, and start the playoff run.
I actually think the last two drives were huge for this team moving forward. I would like to think they needed some confidence and they actually executed well there. Yes prevent defense but that’s ok. They needed some positivity on the offense and they got it.

And they would have pulled it out of Bolden somehow reels that in.

448 total yards
29 first downs

I think the offense will begin to get it going next week. This last bit of this game was enormous for this team.

Prevent or not, going from 28-9 with like 5 minutes left to an onside kick away from having a chance at the win isn’t nothing.

Cant advance it. If Houston possesses then fumbles you could score a td but not a straight onside recovery, afaik
Where's the fairness, receiving team can advance the ball but kicking team cannot. I was thinking of a play years ago where kicking team scored a TD, but that was when kick returner just left ball in end zone.
So you’re saying that when Brady’s not running for his life he’s ... elite?
He's pretty darn good at least.

Brady after the game on the two point conversion: Didn't like the look.
OK, but it's still worth trying to draw the D offsides. If offense commits a false start penalty (e.g., Brady head bob), it's the same 5 yards back as delay of game.
