When I knew Denver was scoring in OT, my first thought was "Oh Fudge! I guess Ben's gonna have to score a TD and tie this up and I know he will."
I was thinking both teams had to have an offensive possession and didn't realize right away that the it was over until the announcers said Denver's going to NE.
It is what it is. And I now get that getting into FG range is too easy and they don't want the game ending on a first possession FG. But for some reason, I forgot that part of the rule on the score.
Anyone else have the same reaction? Did you think we'd get a shot too?
I actually thought thank god for the new rule. But I guess the complete rule didn't sink in until after the game was over.
