Ravens Star Player and Head Coach Angry Just Before Bills Win
The Buffalo Bills completed a gigantic comeback win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, overcoming a 17-point deficit to win 23-20 on a last second field goal.
The Bills defense played a good game in the first half and an outstanding game in the second half. Outside of one long touchdown drive, the Bills defense did what they were supposed to do.
The end of the game was the most fascinating aspect of the win.
The Bills were driving inside the 15-yard-line and the Ravens decided to use two timeouts to give themselves as much time as possible if and when they got the ball back in a 20-20 tie with just under two-minutes to go.
The Bills only need to get to the 1-yard-line for a first down, and the Ravens were ready to use their last timeout. Instead of scoring on a long run, Bills running back Devin Singletary decided to give himself up and allow the Ravens to tackle him before scoring.
That sequence allowed the Bills to run the clock down and kick the game-winning field goal.
Ravens star cornerback Marcus Peters was visibly angry with his coaching staff and according to NFL reporter Ari Meirov, was yelling at head coach John Harbaugh.
It looked as if some Ravens players wanted to allow Singletary to score, but he was ultimately tackled and the Bills got one more first down that allowed them to kill the clock and kick an easy field goal for the win.
In that situation, as crazy as it sounds, the Ravens should have just let the Bills score in that sequence.
