Amazing Comeback

If you are a football fan, you had to just love the game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts last night. The game had everything: a great player having a great game (Randy Moss), a great comeback (Colts), a decision for everyone to talk about (Belichick going for the first down on 4th and 2), even some controversial referee decisions. I was listening on the radio; before the Colts got their first touchdown and there was about 31/2 minutes to go, I was rehearsing the things the Colts would need to win: touchdown, ball back quickly, touchdown. Very unlikely, I thought. But they did it. I do think Belichick's choice was a poor one to go for it. I'll take the chances on my defense defending a longer field, thank you.

A few stills, also from

Randy Moss was unstoppable at times. He had 179 yards receiving and 2 TDs.
The critical moment: Lawrence Maroney tackled short of the first down late in the forth quarter.
Did the genius outsmart himself by going for it on forth down? Or by using up all his time outs so he could not challenge the spot of the ball on the forth down play? You can bet they are talking about it in Boston!
