Then the defense responded and mike Adams knocked Flaccos desperate 4th down pass to the ground with minimal time to go. Those 2 scenarios in itself shows me they took control of the destiny of the game. A recipe for overcoming a bad game and winning it. Those overcoming moments were lost on one play. Where you see a team flailing all game i see a team putting it together when it meant the most and overcoming adversity. I guess were just going to have to disagree on it.
But we didnt lose the game on that play - just as you said in your point earlier - we just lost the lead.
The team still had the opportunity to overcome that mistake through an entire OT quarter and part of a second OT and didnt.
