That was one of the coldest games I've ever attended and the wind was insane. Bullshit calls at the end - Don't think I will I watch this game again. Don't need the aggravation.
As frustrating as it was, I think it helped the Patriots lose to the Giants in the SuperBowl. It put even more pressure on them in the biggest game of the year, which wouldn't have been the same had we won that wacky game. Still wish we would have pulled out, of course, but looking at the big picture; it's sweet that the pats blew it! Kind of like losing to the Steelers and Skins as much as we hate losing (not to mention those big rivalries) the big picture was a SuperBowl victory! I'll take it.
I won about 5k on that game, Ravens were a 20 point underdog at home and it was windy as hell that night. Easy $$
Man Boller made some great throws in this game.
OMG, how far we've come offensively!
The money line was 10-1 for the Ravens that game, and the over/under was 51. That last PI called cost me another $2500. The Ravens where the biggest underdog ever on MNF for that game. I think only 4 Ravens remained on that team this year from that team. Reed, Lewis, Suggs and Ngata I beleive. Shows you how much turnover happens in the NFL in 5 years. The famous Billick Kiss bowl
I left the stadium feeling pretty satisfied that night. That was a bad Ravens team and they went toe to toe with one of the greatest offenses we have ever seen. It all fell apart at the end, but nobody thought we even belonged on the same field as those guys. The Ravens gave everything they had.
The following week's game against the Colts was the absolute worst FB game I have ever been to. It was cold, raining, and the game was over by the second quarter. In the second half we were treated to the Jim Sorgi show. It was an all time low for the Ravens.
And the Pats did not instantly lose after Tyree made that catch. They could have stopped the rest of the drive, they could have not left Plaxico wide open for a TD, and Randy Moss could have not dropped Brady's catchable desperation bomb. Also, calling what the Giants did "incredibly lucky"--limiting one of the most prolific offenses of all time to 14 points--is questionable.
Not that it really matters much to me.
My point was just that the Pats were on the doorstep of history and fell flat on their faces, which I enjoyed. ;) I also just happen to believe if we had beat them (if anyone had) they would have been looser in the playoffs/SB.
