Not sure if anyone has mentioned this since the threads are flying today, but didn't you find it odd that when the Pats had 1st and goal with about 2 minutes to go that we allowed them to run the clock down to basically nothing without calling a timeout?

I thought it was wrong last night while watching.
They only have 4 downs and will at least kick a field goal.
Why not give yourself more time for one last drive?

Why prolong the agony?

At that point it was only 17-0.
Go get a field goal and get the ball first in the second half.

Of course little did I know at that point that Tomlin thought the defensive game plan was perfect and had no need to change it.
