Why didn't Roberts take that kickoff out of end zone on kickoff before half?

Recommended Posts

Roberts is a great returner. There were 8 seconds left. Bills were going to kneel. What is there to lose by bringing it out? I suppose he could fumble but he is too good to not take a shot there.

It is the way.

I was saying the same thing.

And why not throw a deep pass and try to draw a pass interference and steal a late fg before the half?

You answered your own question. Pretty damn sure McConservative told him not to take it out.

Absolutely this

8 secs, fumble at the 16, Pats FG or worse, a TD...would have been a back breaker.  They knew they were getting the ball.  

 

They came back and opened the 3rd with a TD drive.

 

I get complaining about being conservative, but I am more peeved that they didn’t go for 2 after they got the TD in the 3rd making it a 2 score game.  Why is it so hard for them to see the other team wouldn’t risk going for 2 if they can tie with an XP....argh

Odds. He’s dAr more likely to fumble than return for a td. With current rules you have a less than 1 percent chance to bring it back for td and no time to score if he had a long return than fell Short

I was wondering why not send Brown and Diggs on fly patterns instead of kneeling? Let them out run defenders who are expecting a kneel down. Let Allen throw a bomb at the end of the half. There would be minimal rush, everyone was expecting a kneel down.

Remember we were set to get the 2nd half kickoff. We were up. Even if by little. Not really much to gain there dudes. 

I get that there's things to complain about. This isn't one of them.
