i didnt understand the punting either on the previous possession either. the possession before that one, they scored a TD but on a drive where they had to go for a 4th down and 4. after that, i pretty much figured there werent gonna punt anymore unless they got a pick6 or score from their defense.
i hate it when teams just dont give themselves more chances to win. you always play to get yourself within that 1 score to give yourself a chance to win or tie the game with the last possession you got.
With the Giants knowing they would pass they were easily getting to the QB. The amount of time he had to sit back at 4th and 28th, he would have gotten creamed, so they didn't bother.
True,he may have gotten creamed,but this is the NFL.Iv'e never seen a team just go "we suck,lets just give them the win".They flat out gave up on the game.Hail mary,Pass interference,anything could have happend to put them in better a position,no matter how low the chances are.
