I liked going for 2 there...not sure how much faith I have in the defense in OT with how tired they appeared to be.
Not hindsight..just liked how things were playing out and we ran it effectively today. That same design of the Lamar TD would have been tough to stop.
I'm probably in the minority, but I'm actually pretty fond of teams going for two late in the game in that situation. Had there been even LESS time on the clock, I'd have been more on board.
The way I look at it is this... say it's literally the final seconds, like 0:03 left on the clock. Ironic to say this now given Tucker's miss, but give the typical automatic nature of the extra point, in a way I look at it as this... you're ALREADY in overtime.
You can take the ball... guaranteeing possession (which is NOT guaranteed in OT if you lose the flip)... and from the two yard line, get one chance to win the game. I'm good with that. You could go to OT lose the flip and never touch the ball. Or you could score first with a FG and still lose anyway now. This isn't college, where you're guaranteed a chance to score / re-tie / win / etc.
As for the argument that the Ravens aren't clutch enough in short-yardage goal line situations... I'm not sure what the numbers say, but I DO agree with that perception at least. I'm big on teams going 4+ wide and running out of a spread formation down there, if they don't have that "mauling" style O-line that you're confident can get you 6 feet of ground. Also agree that Jackson would have been a worthwhile risk there, with no Joe on the field. Go 5 wide to pull some bodies out of the box, put the ball in an elusive runner's hands, and give it a shot. If he gets bottled up, try to throw it up for grabs to a guy like Crabtree or an Andrews / Hurst type on the far outside, where he's probably in single coverage.
