    I was not happy with the decision to kick the XP. Going for 2 is statistically the right call down 9. You have to go for 2 at some point to have a chance to win. If you go for the extra point, then OT is your best possible outcome in the game. If you go for 2 and make it you can go for 2 again and win the game, which would have also been the correct call had that opportunity presented itself.

    No coach in the NFL would have gone for 2 twice in that situation in the playoffs.

    If you’re the underdog it’s the right play. I don’t disagree with you though...

    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant Ö isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?
