Matt Ryan Plus Two Timeouts Plus 30 Seconds Equals Game Winner

Matt Ryan Plus Two Timeouts Plus 30 Seconds Equals Game Winner

Hyped by on January 13, 2013 Website:

In Saturday’s first game of the NFL Playoffs, the Denver Broncos took the ball with just under 30 seconds left and two timeouts. It was nearly the same situation the Atlanta Falcons found themselves in nearly 24 hours later.

The Broncos were involved in a tie game, while Atlanta was down one, so for the Falcons, there was no choice. They had to make a play for the field goal and the win. Two completions and a 48 yard field goal by Matt Bryant later, and the Atlanta Falcons had won their first playoff game under the Mike Smith/Matt Ryan regime.

As exciting as this is for the people of Atlanta, it is a harsh reminder to the Denver Broncos of their failure...
