    Exactly.

    However, we shouldn't have even been in OT. We should've won that game after stopping them on 4th and 18. I'm still outraged by this. And the Fells drop that arguably could've been a TD at the end (it looked like he had the momentum to pound it into the endzone).

    Re: Pass interference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yep, it was truly a terrible call not only because it was incidental and Atogwe didn't have his hands on the receiver, but also because the ball was uncatchable. It's rare that a single call can be said to cost a team the game, but when it puts the other team in field goal range in overtime...yeah.

    That said, we had lots of other opportunities to put the game away. Sure, there's the Fells drop, but also remember the 3-and-outs.

    4th Quarter

    The score is 17-10. Rams have the ball with 15:00 to play. Rams lose 5 yards (delay of game) and punt at 14:49. Time of possession: 11 seconds.

    The score is 17-10. Rams get the ball at 13:30 to play. Rams gain 8 yards and punt at 11:57. Time of possession: 1 minute, 33 seconds.

    The score is 17-13. Rams get the ball at 9:02 to play. Rams gain 4 yards and punt at 7:57. Time of possession: 1 minute, 5 seconds.

    The score is 17-13. Rams get the ball at 6:18 to play. Rams gain 8 yards and punt at 4:21. Time of possession, 1 minute, 57 seconds.

    This is how we close a game?

    Great points. As upsetting as the PI call was, we set ourselves up for failure by not taking care of business and putting the whiners away when we had the chance(s)......Very disappointing.

    The bad call simply adds to the fact that pass interference rules need to be changed. I don't understand why they can't at least make it a reviewable call in the last two minutes and overtime. It doesn't make sense that they canít review a penalty that can give up the most yards.

    If History is any indicator, this very well could become a rule, but it will never work to the RAMS benifit. It will more than likely be ignored until it can be used against the RAMS.

    This is why we lost. OT and that fake penalty should never have happened. When we start putting teams away, the ref's will not be able to allow other teams to steal the games from us.

    Exactly. We had plenty of opportunities to put this game away. I was at game and had perfect shot at the pass play to fells and ACTUALLY stood up in Whiner country with arms up designating TD, he had a s core no problem if ball is caught. Pass was off mark but still catch able. Really, I do not care about the PI call since we had way too many issues with putting this game away in roder to avoid OT all together. Bad calls happen ,we need to be better at taking care of what we can control.
