No Falcons fan here, but that outcome was more disappointing than I had prepared for.

I also think NFL OT rules are bullshit. I've never liked the arbitrariness of football, and this is (relatively speaking) a pretty catastrophic example of it.

I will say, however, that around halfway through the fourth quarter we switched to the Spanish-language broadcast, and it was a major upgrade.
And no, I don't speak Spanish.

i was rooting for atlanta, but didn't really care either way.  i was happy it was a good game.  however, when you're are a winner your a winner.  and when you're a loser...well...

i hear you about the overtime rules.  i like college overtime rules.  i knew as soon as the pats won the cointoss that the game was over.  shame the league mvp didn't get a chance in overtime, but he had his chances during the game...like a million of them.

I would argue that the college OT rules gives an advantage to the coin toss loser. The 1st team scores a TD - the next team has 4 downs anywhere on the field that they are - they have nothing to lose

shame the league mvp didn't get a chance in overtime, but he had his chances during the game...like a million of them.

exactly. Getting the ball back with just under 1 minute in regulation, after you've been leading, and no time outs left?????

I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul
