Not sure I'd use the timeout there. They would have had to run another play before the 2:00 warning. If you stop them there, run it down to 2 minutes, and save all 3 of your timeouts for after the 2 minute if you stop them on third down or if you don't.

Now you end up with the 1st and 10, with one timeout left at the warning.

Would have had 3rd and 4 at the warning with 3 timeouts left.

Won't matter either way, but that's how I would have played.

Edit: They used the third timeout before the warning. So at best, it'll be third down after the warning and they'll get it back with a little over a minute left, so in the end, I'm wrong

But I'm not wrong about this game being over and my bet not going over.

Wow, Mayfield got that to the end zone. And no one touched it. And Godwin had a shot at it.
The replay basically showed that every single receiver was getting held or interfered with.. but apparently non of that was worth a call.

I’m ok with the no-call, but we also thought there was a lot of contact even by HM standards. It might have kept Godwin from catching that ball.

That was a surprisingly entertaining game.

I'm sort of ok with it.. but there's also a reason the ball fell to the ground without getting touched.. every DB was basically holding their receiver in place... it was either defensive holding or illegal contact. Shouldn't matter that it's a hail mary.

It shouldn't but it does. If Godwin turns a second earlier, he makes that catch even with the defender pulling on him.

Why are NFL pregame shows so melodramatic?

Watching a Kirk Cousins interview and it’s produced like a Hallmark holiday movie. Forced smiles, forced cringe jokes, cliche after cliche, with sappy music playing over the interview.

It’s football. These are football games. The way the NFL over-produces the coverage around it is so vomit-inducing.

Yeah I usually don’t watch them either, so maybe that’s why it stood out to me so much today. I haven’t watched a pregame show in years, at least that I can remember.

I’ve been kicking around the house with the rain today so I tuned in early and it really stood out to me just how embarrassing and over-polished the production is. Less Hallmark and more breaking down plays and educating viewers about the game, please.

They aren’t produced for hardcore football fans, which is ironic since hardcore football fans are the ones most likely to want to watch a multi-hour pregame show.

It’s still nuts that we have THREE HOUR pregame shows for regular season games.

Rams hosed on 3rd down with a baby shit soft flag when Dak was sacked. Because when you can alter a game in the first minute, you do it.

And now Dallas has a TD after the Rams got screwed on a 3rd down play. Tough one.

The Rams are getting hosed in the last couple of weeks.

The networks televising the early games (Fox and CBS) just have a one hour pregame show. The three hour pregame is on NFL Network, so, what else do they have to do on a gameday Sunday?

Jets-Giants is a Giants home game. Weather sucks. Lots of empty seats, but it doesn't look like the Giants fans gave up their seats to their Jets buddies, lol.

Breece Hall catches a 3 yard pass out of the backfield and turns it into a 50 yard TD. 7-3 Jets.

Yeah, in fairness I totally get the target demo/casual viewer argument. It’d just be nice - if that’s the case - to see them educate casual fans more about the game. Explain different coverages and how different teams play them, offensive playcalling, etc and how it changes week to week and matchup to matchup.

Instead they’re like “Kirk lmao look at these hilarious photos of you in gold chains!” while cheap elevator music plays in the background.

They ruled that a fumble against Stafford. The refs really have no interest in letting the Rams breathe.

The ball SHOT forward. How do you think that happened refs?
