No Festivus Maximus for Us
And they should have won. Among the final plays of the game were a dropped pass in the endzone and a missed 32-yard field goal attempt that would have tied the game and taken it to overtime. The Ravens outplayed the Pats (game stats here); even Joe Flacco put up better numbers than Tom Brady, which is crazy-like-whoa (although Joe also didn't have to face down the Ravens' defense). But when it counted, poor play calls were made and key plays went sour.
This really looked like a good year for us and, with our team aging, who knows when we'll get so good a chance again. If I had a beer, I'd totally be crying in it right now.
