Forums - Sports Discussion - The NFL Thread 2019, Conference Championships: Chiefs end drought, 49ers stop SB1 Rematch

What was becoming the biggest upset of the playoffs is now turning into the biggest choke job of the season.

Seriously, this is something you'd expect to see straight out of a movie.

One of those coaching decisions where everyone will say that the coach had balls for making that call when it works, but criticize him for being an idiot when it doesn't.

How the hell do you settle for a field goal on 4th and 1 deep in their territory, but go for a trick play on 4th and 4 deep in your territory?

Now two ways about it, stupid coaching decisions. He's panicing and throwing this game.

You wouldn't be saying that if the fake punt had been converted for a new first down.

Back to the game, the Chiefs didn't get into the hole due to bad play overall (there were dropped passes, but nothing too serious), but because of a couple of individual plays: A blocked punt and a muff on a punt return. Now that the Texans had their boneheaded fake punt and fumble on a kickoff return, it has evened out.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

More like the dumbest game of football this season. Are we sure the Buccaneers and Browns didn't just dress up as the Chiefs and Texans?



I hope the Houston Texans will win.

I would, because it was 2 yards short, and even if he beat that defender for the first down it was still a bad call. Yesterday I thought the first 4th down try for the Ravens was stupid, but the second was definitely a good decision even though neither of them were converted. I don't make these judgements in hindsight.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Texans don't get anything going in the second half. Then again, the Chiefs defense isn't particularly good, so this could be a shootout with unknown outcome well into the fourth quarter.

Don't let the Texans blowing a 24 point lead distract you from the fact that the Falcons blew a 25 point lead.

They aren't really comparable games. The Texans went up 24 due to a couple of individual plays that provided easy TDs. The Falcons were up 25 because they thoroughly outplayed the Patriots for more than half the game.

On the embarrassment scale, the Texans are far less embarrassing than the Falcons were.

Very true. 

This game had a rather bizarre start, with KC's special teams providing the Texans with 14 free points in the first quarter, only for the Texans' special teams to repay the favor soon after.
