That didn't work
The situation: The Texans managed to get a field goal out of the first drive of the game and followed that up with a stellar three-and-out effort by their defense.
Grubbs with the gain
Things got a bit nutty when ...Ray Rice can't handle the handoff from Flacco, fumbles the ball, kicks it forward, and gets a nice bit of good fortune when lineman Ben Grubbs recovers the loose ball for a 2-yard gain. Two plays later, however, Houston completed a goal-line stand to remain in the game.
Look what I found
The situation: The 49ers -- leading 17-7 with 9:32 left in the second quarter -- face a first-and-10 from their own 20-yard line.
Best punt of the playoffs?
The situation: The Patriots lead 45-10 with 3:10 left in the game and face a third-and-10 from their own 42-yard line.
Things got a bit nutty when ... The Patriots opt to dial it back to a time when football players wore leather helmets, and the forward pass was a foreign offensive concept. You see, back in the old-timey days, teams punted before fourth down to get ahead in the always-important field position battle. With the game out of hand, the Patriots figured they were better off getting their all-time great, future Hall of Fame quarterback off the field. So, Tom Brady lined up in the shotgun formation, and surprised everyone by punting the ball. It was a good punt, too, going for 48 yards. Some mayhem occurred after the play, with the punt sparking a brawl.
