I have often wondered many times over the years when a team scores a TD that ties the game with less than a minute yet, knowing they will give the ball back to the opponent (in this case Aaron Rogers) with enough time to march down and kick a winning field goal. I know it seems strange but what if Juszcyk goes down at the 1/2 yard line rather than scoring. You had two timeouts to score a TD rather than giving the ball back to the other team. The downside is obviously you run a risk of not scoring but at least to keep it in your hands and not the opponents. How many times have we seen a good QB march down the field against a prevent defense only to kick a 40 yarder and win the game with less than a minute left. I'd just once want to see that scenario play out.
Fair point. Even worse is they had 12 seconds on the play clock when they snapped the ball. From what I read today they didn't really expect to score from the 15 on a 5 yard pass to the FB and wanted to keep the D on their heels.
That said they won last week on a series of QB sneaks so going down at the 1 would have been smart. In hindsight.
But a decent D should stop a FG with 37 seconds to go.
