This feels like an Andy Reid stat, doesn’t it? The Falcons led 28-3 early in the second half and then ran the ball only five times after that.
Wild stat. Falcons called only 5 running plays after securing a 28-3 lead. @NFLonFOX— Peter Schrager (@PSchrags) February 6, 2017
The most indefensible drive was the Falcons second to last one where they held an eight point lead and were in field goal range. All they had to do was kneel it and then kick the field goal to make it a two score game. This isn’t even Monday morning quarterback ... during the drive last night I saw tons of people on social media and comment sections on our Falcons blog wondering why they were throwing it there.
Of course, I would love for Andy Reid to do this in the Super Bowl. Because it would mean the Chiefs won more than one playoff game and are in the Super Bowl.
