    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have a beef with the NFL for a penalty on their 2-point conversion attempt against the Packers. While it’s relatively impossible to prove without the official game tape and comments from the referees and NFL itself, a number of fans on Buccaneers reddit may have found an issue with a delay of game call on the team’s 2-point conversion attempt which would’ve tied the game. Tampa’s delay of game, which angered Tom Brady in the moment, pushed them back to the 7-yard line in an attempt to tie the Packers. Had it not been called, it looks like the Bucs would’ve had a walk-in conversion, and evened the score in the process. Pretty inexcusable. Tom Brady with a delay of game penalty on the game-tying 2-pt attempt…at home. Looks he would have walked right in.

    Referees determined that Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was successful on his two-point conversion attempt. Kelce had the perfect reaction to it. It is an NFL Sunday, which means that there are bound to be a controversial call or two (or more). That was the chase during one of the top games of the 1:00 p.m. ET slate — the Kansas City Chiefs vs. the Indianapolis Colts. Just before the end of the first half, the Chiefs took the lead over the Colts on a one-yard touchdown run by Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Kansas City then called for a two-point conversion attempt, in which quarterback Patrick Mahomes connected with tight end Travis Kelce for what was called successful. But upon replay, it looked as though Kelce was short of the goal line when attempting to run back into the end zone, as his right knee was down. Instead, the ruling on the field was upheld, and the Chiefs took a 14-6 lead.

    SANTA CLARA – Wilcox’s Ty Jeter joined a host of his teammates to stop Menlo-Atherton on a two-point conversion with four minutes to go in the fourth quarter. The stop preserved a 21-20 Wilcox lead and eventual win, with the game defined by big plays, penalties, a crushing ground game, and of course, coach Chris Saunders’ decision to go for two after Jurrion Dickey caught a 35-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter. After the stop, Wilcox ran the ball and the time off the clock as the home team came away with a victory on Paul Rosa’s birthday. The team was led in rushing by Elijah Walker, a star halfback who had 192 yards and a touchdown on 29 carries. Andrew Palacios also ran for 65 and a score. Meanwhile, Bear receiver Jurrion Dickey overcame a constant double-team to catch five passes for 90 yards and a touchdown, and Menlo-Atherton’s halfback Sherrod Smith gashed the Chargers for 128 yards on 12 carries. he also ran for a touchdown.

    Kyler Murray helped the Arizona Cardinals overcome a 23-7 deficit to defeat the Las Vegas Raiders 29-23. The Arizona Cardinals had a season opener to forget, as they lost 44-24 to the Kansas City Chiefs. In Week 2, the Cardinals were trailing 20-0 to the Las Vegas Raiders in the third quarter. But there was no worries for Arizona, as quarterback Kyler Murray singlehandedly put the team on his back, leading the team to overtime. Arizona picked up the 29-23 win after forcing a fumble on Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow, which cornerback Byron Jones recovered and returned for a touchdown. With the Cardinals now 1-1 on the year, thanks in part to Murray, take a look at the three most insane plays made by the quarterback.3.

    After the Ravens held on in late November for an ugly Week 12 win over the Cleveland Browns, team owner Steve Bisciotti’s M&T Bank Stadium suite was euphoric. The injury-ravaged Ravens, somehow, were 8-3, atop the AFC. Bisciotti remembers his family being “so elated at that win” In the back of his mind, though, he could sense the fragility of the team’s success. The Ravens were pulling off incredible comebacks and winning without key players. “Honestly, I say this somewhat facetiously, but it was like a house of cards,” Bisciotti said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings. “When we were 8-3, it was kind of a house of cards. The weird ways we won, in Detroit, in Chicago and then one crazy comeback with the Colts, it was like, ‘OK, we are legit.’ I kept thinking, ‘Holy s—, can we keep this together?’ It was building me up to have, like, a false confidence, because my eyes were deceiving me. I’m looking at this team going, ‘I can’t believe we’re 8-3.’ ” Their fortunes changed quickly. The Ravens ended the...
    As Ravens coach John Harbaugh joked Monday, analytics have been around since his dad, Jack, was coaching. Back in those days, they amounted to figuring out what plays weren’t viable on third down. “There’s always been analytics in football,” the younger Harbaugh said. In 2021, however, there’s “just a much more advanced version of what’s been going on for many years in football.” The scrutiny is greater, too. The Ravens (8-6) enter Sunday’s showdown with the AFC North-leading Cincinnati Bengals (8-6) on a three-game losing streak defined as much by its narrow margins of defeat (a combined four points) as by the analytical reckonings left in each game’s wake. In a 20-19 loss to the Steelers, the Ravens went for a go-ahead 2-point conversion with 12 seconds left, determined not to let Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger take advantage of a depleted secondary. In a 24-22 loss to the Browns, the Ravens went for a 2-point conversion after they’d cut Cleveland’s fourth-quarter lead to nine points, rather than wait for another touchdown to make up the ground. ...

    Getty Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman reaches for the end zone during a December 2021 game. The Baltimore Ravens lost to the Cleveland Browns on December 12 in dramatic fashion, falling just short of completing an 18-point comeback in the second half. While the Ravens’ comeback attempt ultimately ended with a failed fourth down conversion attempt, some prominent analysts pointed at an earlier decision as the basis for Baltimore’s loss. After a touchdown by tight end Mark Andrews cut the Browns’ lead to nine points, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh kept his offense on the field to attempt a two-point conversion. If successful, the Ravens would be down by just seven points, but instead they failed, leaving them behind by nine points and in need of two more scores to win the game. It’s the second week in a row that a failed two-point conversion has sparked controversy in Baltimore, with Week 13’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers hinging on a pass from Lamar Jackson that was just barely out of reach for Andrews. Harbaugh’s decision against...

    Regardless of coach John Harbaugh’s success rate in compiling analytics or being aggressive in crucial situations, he still should have sent out place-kicker Justin Tucker to attempt the extra point instead of gambling and failing on a 2-point conversion pass in the last minute of the Ravens’ 20-19 loss to the Steelers on Sunday in Pittsburgh. It’s great that the Ravens want to be aggressive, and Harbaugh has won more than he has lost in these situations. But in this case, his decision-making was poor and cost the Ravens the current No. 1 position for the AFC playoffs. After cutting the deficit to 20-19 on a 6-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Lamar Jackson to receiver Sammy Watkins with 12 seconds left, Harbaugh immediately signaled to go for two. My immediate reaction was to laugh. Harbaugh might be the riverboat gambling type but certainly should not have been in this situation, not after the Ravens had given up 17 fourth-quarter points. It made no sense. On the next play, Jackson overthrew a wide-open tight end Mark Andrews in...
    John Harbaugh’s decision to attempt a 2-point conversion to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers rather than settle for a Justin Tucker extra point to go into overtime will be the subject of much debate this week. But not to his players, many of whom defended their head coach’s line of thinking that resulted in a 20-19 loss at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on Sunday. “If we would have converted that 2-point conversion, we would be having a different conversation now,” inside linebacker Josh Bynes said. “Let’s just be real. We’d be talking about all of these ways we find a way to win and all of the other stuff. At the end of the day, they found a way to make the one play, and we didn’t. that’s what it came down to, and that’s what these games are all about, especially this late in the season. They made that one extra play, and that’s all that matters.” The final two minutes represented a roller coaster ride of emotions for Ravens fans. After the defense gave up a...
    When the ball dropped, falling to the field in another AFC North classic, Heinz Field exploded in ecstasy. The Ravens had led the Pittsburgh Steelers for most of Sunday’s game. And with just 12 seconds remaining, they’d had a chance to put them away again. A hurry-up touchdown drive had put them within an extra point of tying Pittsburgh. But rather than send on kicker Justin Tucker for a gimme extra-point attempt, the Ravens rolled the dice. And when tight end Mark Andrews couldn’t bring in quarterback Lamar Jackson’s 2-point conversion try, it was all for naught. In a 20-19 loss, they’d given up their advantage in the AFC standings. They’d let Pittsburgh run all over them on a crucial drive the way the Ravens used to do to opponents. They’d finally watched their shortcomings catch up to them. Rather than seizing on a chance to knock off a reeling Pittsburgh team (6-5-1), the Ravens (8-4) instead fell back on familiar problems: inconsistent offensive execution, defensive breakdowns, questionable decision-making from Lamar Jackson. The Ravens’ star quarterback finished...
    Missouri quarterback Connor Bazelak heard boos from the home fans as he trotted to the sideline after fruitless drives Saturday. It was nothing but cheers after he lofted a 2-point conversion pass to Daniel Parker Jr. to lift the Tigers to a 24-23 overtime victory over Florida. "I’m proud of Connor," Missouri coach Eli Drinkwitz said. "He takes a lot of criticism, he takes a lot of boos, but when we needed him, he stepped up." The Tigers (6-5, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) drew within a point on Tyler Badie’s 13-yard touchdown run, and Drinkwitz elected to go for 2 rather than send the game to a second overtime with a PAT kick.

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Casey Washington caught a 2-point conversion pass from Brandon Peters to end the first nine-overtime game in NCAA history and lift Illinois over No. 7 Penn State 20-18 Saturday. The teams were tied at 10 after regulation, exchanged field goals in the first two overtimes, then began to alternate 2-point attempts in the third OT as part of a format tweaked ahead of the 2021 season. Neither team converted until the eighth overtime, when Isaiah Williams ran one in to put Illinois up 18-16. Penn State’s Noah Cain kept the game alive with a 2-point run of his own.

It took San Diego State three overtimes to escape with a win over Utah on Saturday.

    The Eagles did not win their Monday night game against the Seahawks, but at least they managed to cover the spread. Philadelphia was a 6.5-point underdog at home entering the contest. It fell 23-17 after a margin-reducing Hail Mary score in the final seconds. For those with money at stake, that final sequence carried significant implications. The Seahawks pushed their lead to 23-9 with 1:13 to play, making Seattle a pretty safe bet to cover. But then Carson Wentz heaved a prayer to the end zone, and Richard Rodgers hauled in the pass after a deflection for a 33-yard touchdown with 12 seconds remaining. OK, no big deal. If you’re a Seahawks bettor, you’re probably thinking the Eagles will kick the PAT to make it a 7-point game. But no, Philly opted to go for the 2-point conversion, likely hoping to recover the onside kick and potentially go for the win in regulation on a touchdown and PAT. Myles Sanders found the end zone with an easy run up the gut, likely sending Eagles bettors into a frenzy. Gee, wonder if that play cost anyone some...

On the play, Giants quarterback Daniel Jones tried to connect with running back Dion Lewis in the shallow right side of the end zone and Buccaneers rookie cornerback Antoine Winfield Jr. was called for pass interference. Side judge Nate Jones, who played college football at Rutgers and is a former Cowboys cornerback, threw the flag on Winfield, who appeared to grab Lewis’ hand as the ball arrived and bounced off Winfield’s arm. The Giants thought they’d have another crack from the 1-yard line. They were wrong. Referee Brad Rogers gathered the crew together for an agonizing several moments and the call on the field — one that by rule could not be reviewed on replay — was reversed. The...

Daniel Jones had found Golden Tate with a 19-yard pass to bring the Giants within 25-23 with 28 seconds left. A two-point conversion stood between Big Blue and a tie score with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. © Provided by Touchdown Wire Dion Lewis was the target. The Monday Night Football booth drilled home that it should have been pitch-and-catch. Jones was late with the release and Antoine Winfield Jr. was flying toward the Giants’ running back and the ball. Winfield hits Lewis and separates him from the ball. At some point, a penalty flag appeared … late. Did he get there too early? Was it DPI? What would the officials do? After a conference, heaven forbid an instant decision, the officials ruled there was no foul on the play and the Giants suffered another brutal loss. What do you think? Antoine...
    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Lackluster for much of the game, Tom Brady did what he does best in the second half Monday night. Brady threw touchdowns passes to Rob Gronkowski and Mike Evans, lifting Tampa Bay to a 25-23 victory over the New York Giants, and giving the Buccaneers quarterback the career lead in TD throws once more. The Saints’ Drew Brees had passed Brady on Sunday, but now the six-time Super Bowl champ is back on top with 561. Evans’ diving 8-yard catch provided the go-ahead points. “We obviously didn’t play the way we’re capable of, but it was good to get a win,” Brady said.

    A back-and-forth game that featured comebacks by both teams, a dozen touchdowns and more than 1,100 yards in offense seemed destined to reach a second overtime before ending abruptly on — of all things — a botched conversion kick. Minnesota's Brock Walker sent an extra-point try wide right after the potential tying touchdown, giving Maryland a stunning 45-44 comeback victory Friday night. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM After the Terrapins rallied from a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter to force overtime, Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa ran for a 2-yard touchdown and Joseph Peterino kicked the extra point to give the Terrapins — who came in as 19-point underdogs — a 45-38 lead. Minnesota answered with a 2-yard touchdown run by Seth Green before Walker's extra-point try went awry to end this Big Ten duel and launch a wild celebration by the Terrapins, who jubilantly sprinted across the field, seemingly uncaring that they had no fans with whom they could share the moment. Never in school history had Maryland won after trailing by 17 points in the fourth quarter....

    NFL teams are attempting two-point conversions in 2020 more than ever before, and it’s something the math says should’ve happened a long time ago. According to the Associated Press, the NFL has “gone for 2” more through six weeks of a season than it ever has since the two-point conversion’s inception in 1994. That’s likely due in part to more NFL teams embracing the analytics movements that have hit most professional sports, because in this case, the numbers often say teams should try the two-point conversion more than they do. The two-point conversion is also more aesthetically pleasing and more football-centric than an extra-point attempt. Kickers feel like such a break in flow of an offensively powered football game, so keeping the offenses out and going for two can often add drama and excitement to the game. Here’s what you need to know about the NFL’s play on the rise.  What is a two-point conversion in the NFL? After a touchdown, an NFL team has two options: It can attempt a point-after kick, which if successful adds one point...

After Rutgers claimed their first Big Ten victory since 2017 earlier in the day against Michigan State, Indiana edged No. 8 Penn State in an overtime thriller that ended with a controversial replay decision. © Provided by For The Win The final minutes of regulation in Bloomington were madness. Indiana led 20-14 with under three minutes to play, but Penn State’s Sean Clifford threw a 60-yard touchdown bomb to Jahan Dotson to give Penn State the lead. The Penn State defense then forced a turnover-on-downs deep in Indiana’s territory, and took over at the 14-yard line with 1:42 remaining. On the first play of the ensuing drive, Devyn Ford walked in untouched on a...

    Lamar Jackson threw for a touchdown and ran for a score and the Baltimore Ravens held on for a 30-28 victory over the depleted Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The Eagles (1-4-1) came in missing seven offensive starters, including four offensive linemen, and then lost two more when running back Miles Sanders left in the third quarter and tight end Zach Ertz exited in the fourth. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Still, the Ravens (5-1) needed to prevent a 2-point conversion with 1:55 remaining to secure the win. Carson Wentz was stopped by L.J. Fort and Matthew Judon trying to run it in. The Eagles wouldn’t have needed the conversion after Wentz sneaked in from the 1 if coach Doug Pederson kicked the extra point when they scored early in the third quarter to cut Baltimore’s deficit to 17-6. Wentz tossed two TD passes, was sacked six times and managed to finish the game along with center Jason Kelce as Philadelphia’s only healthy starters. Jackson, the reigning NFL MVP, was efficient, passing for 186 yards. He ran for...
    Patrick Mahomes had to innovate on the Chiefs game-tying 2-point conversion  The Chiefs came from behind in Los Angeles last Sunday thanks to some late-game heroics from Mahomes, a role he’s become accustomed to playing in his last season-plus, including several unreal comebacks in the postseason. The Chiefs Super Bowl run was filled with double-digit deficits that just didn’t stick, and the Chargers’ 17-6 advantage wasn’t enough to contain Mahomes, either. After narrowing the deficit on a deep ball to Tyreek Hill, in which he had to throw the ball 50 yards while escaping the pocket, the Chiefs still needed a two-point conversion to tie the game. Mahomes found Mecole Hardman for the clutch conversion, but simply describing the play as that isn’t giving the former MVP the credit he deserves. The two-point conversion throw from Mahomes is just as crazy in its own way. How do you find Hardman there? #Chiefs pic.twitter.com/4Rl8tecixK — Sully Engels (@SullyKSNT) September 20, 2020 Hardman wasn’t Mahomes first, second, or third targetWe’ll let ESPN’s Adam Teicher tell the story. Per Teicher, “Patrick Mahomes said...
