The Bears had a lot of success playing an additional Olineman against the Patriots. The Falcons should consider doing it as well. Our receivers should still be able to get open.

There is no way Barkley squats 650 pounds for 10-12 reps.

We just did a really good job on Barkley. Wow. I did not expect that.

56-yd FG attempt by a newly signed kicker up 20-12 at the 2:00 warning? This after a false start on 2nd and 1....then on 3rd and 1 when ATL could have ended the game.

20-6, score a TD for 20-12, then go for 2? Eli with 2 rejected QB sneaks on the goal line in the final minute at 23-12 and no timeouts?

Entertaining? I don't know. Interesting though.

Beckham drops the 2 point conversion (on my FF team) I lose my matchup by 1.1 points. Bitter.

Atlanta was -4. Beckham TD with 5 seconds makes it a 5 point game. Meaningless 2 point conversion makes it 3. Talk about a bad beat.

The combo of the long FG for ATL and the 2 point conversion by Saquon cost me $50 as that knocked me out of top score.

I'd like to see a list of "experts" who are arguing with math. That would be: nearly everyone in a TV booth, and nearly everyone on the studio show.

Also, from that link:

If the Giants convert, then on their next touchdown they know they only need to kick a PAT to take the lead (assuming no other scores). If they fail, which they did, they have an opportunity to go for it again to tie. The long and short of it: converting once is much more likely than failing twice.
So, assuming the bolded is true (and based on a specific team or against a specific team, it might not be, but again, there should be math for that exception as well), going for two P'sAT is almost ALWAYS the better decision than kicking a single PAT.

And yet, coaches don't.
