We are soooo close to field goal range and we spike the ball. Why? there is plenty of time, we can still play for the win but the short term goal is a tie. WTF? WHy waste a down? Just run it up the gut to gain a few more yards and then hurry it up for a pass. I don't understand it....I guess the coaches know better than me/us. Oh, yeah, we lost nevermind.

I think the spike was the right call, but everything after that was garbage.

I was thinking the same thing. Hurry up play to maybe let Hartline get open deep like the Cleveland game. Then again Tannehill gets zero time to throw.

Even a quick slant better positions the field goal try.

Part of me wanted Tannehill to do a fake spike and toss it deep to Wallace. A guy can dream cant he.

The spike was fine. You don't give up a sack in a two minute drill. That was the killer.

He would have dropped it.

I agree with Mak. Too much time still on the clock and you have the Ravens shocked after a 4th and 10 completion behind the secondary, They practice no huddle ALL WEEK LONG in practices. Why burn that down, why? That bugged me a lot and the Ravens regrouped quickly and did what they had to do to pressure Tannehill.
