Not passing yards.
Not rushing yards.
I’m talking about the percentage of probability the Falcons would take home the Lombardi Trophy, even as they were doing their best to hand it over to the Patriots.
And how about this. With 4:40 to go in the game, as mentioned in the article, Atlanta had the ball, 1st and 10 on the New England 22 yard line.
On 107 occasions during the 2016 NFL season teams had the ball 1st and 10 on their opponents’ 22 yard line. Not once did they have to punt.
Until #108 on Sunday.
