It really sucks that such a great game basically got decided in the end by the OT coin toss.
I was at the game in New Orleans when the Saints beat the Vikings in OT of the NFC Championship Game (the game that the Saints Bounty gate revolved around). The Saints winning the OT coin toss and wining with a first possession FG caused the NFL to change the rule to a first possession TD. Still a horrible rule. It burned the Vikings, the Falcons and now the Bills.
If KC kicks a FG BUF still gets a possession. KC running 2 plays from their own 25 with 13 seconds left and somehow getting into FG range was the major Buffalo fail, not whether they squibed it or not. All the second guessing gets ridiculous.
If KC fields a kick that has touched the ground, the clock runs & KC has 10 seconds rather than 13. Just saying kicking it out of the end zone made no sense when KC had 3 timeouts
Until Hill picks it up and runs it back for a TD and you lose instead of going to OT and then they second guess that decision too. I’m assuming their thought was a touchback was the lesser of 2 evils. Hill doing that is a very real possibility. I’m assuming Reid had him back there and if he didn’t he should have.
