Key Play on final drive vs Lions

25 posts in this topic

We all know that comeback on Sunday in Detroit was amazing!! What, in your opinion, was the "key" play on the final drive, other than the scoring play as time ran out.

Mine was the catch by Reggie Wayne that put us in Detroit territory. Once he made that catch, I told myself that we can actually score and win this game!!

The 15 yard horse collar penalty. Though i dont think that luck had any

intentions of sliding i dont think he would have picked up that

many yards before he was brought down

There was a few big plays made that drive. But I agree the catch that reggie made is what made it possible.

A few on the previous drive were possibly more important, and the bomb for a TD before the 2:00 warning was the key to it all.

Luck's run down the sideline, getting a lot more yards by out running Suh, and having the presence to keep tip-toeing down the sideline to squeeze every last yard out was a major key as well. That put us in a very manageable position to win imo.

I think the Reggie pass/catch put Detroit on their heels and cemented that "oh crap" feeling that something bad was about to happen....and for all their talent, IMO, there are few NFL defenses less equipped to deal with furious last-minute drives than the Lions.

Sure enough, they completely blew underneath coverage on Avery coming across for Luck's short TD pass after Luck went to the end zone three times.

Andrew played them like a fiddle.

Almost every positive play was key. The horse-collar was great, especially because it stopped the clock and essentially gave us another TO...

The key play imo was the drop in the back of the endzone by Reggie. Feel like that made the lions back up a bit more which let Avery run underneath

The throw to Reggie. That was a great pass dropped right in there in between triple coverage. It was on a third down that got us on the Lions end of the field.

Not to be over looked was that we picked up two fourth down plays on that drive.

I will give you an off the wall key play in the game. Not on the final drive but a key play nonetheless. On Luck's INT that was almost returned for a TD, he hustled his butt off and forced Lacey to block in the back. That is a pick six otherwise. The Lions settled for a FG instead of the TD.

Also The Lions throwing two incomplete passes with about four minutes left rather than running it. Had the Lions run the ball there the Colts run out of time at the end of the game. That's why I say the Lions are really their own worst enemy and both of these are examples of that.

The question was the key play in the game winning drive. A couple of you have the horse collar in the game winning drive , I thought was before.

was that lefeged wow!!! i thought that was Freeman he laid down the law on that hit... But i believe it was the play after that one that really was key.. That horrible punt gave us excellent field position... I don't think we win if we start on the 10 or 15 as opposed to the 28 yd line

That should have never been a 3rd down play as Luck easlly had the first down with his "9" yard run. Bad no replay from above on that one. But as you say it was an incredible throw.

It was pretty much the exact same throw he tried to make earlier in the game to Hilton I think it was that sailed on him and got picked. That shows me that Luck does grow during the course of the game.

I was incredgilious how they spotted it where they did. Essentially cost us a down because we spiked it after the run.

I thought that the Dwayne Allen catch was a pretty important play too. It wasn't a big gainer but it got us into good scoring position and he got out of bounds. But Reggie's catch was by far in my opinion the most important.

Albeit not a play, but amazing clock management to wrap up the game. We managed every second of the final 2 drives, where as Detroit blew it.

Ended up not costing us anything as we woud have spiked it regardless of the spot. So was as you say , just a lost down. However if the incredible throw and great catch are not made on 3rd and 1 , we would have been looking at 4th and one. Maybe had to run the ball and end up changing the plays for the remainedr of the game. Easily could have cost us the game. But who knows maybe it helped us as the Lions might have been looking for us to complete something shorter and easier to make sure of the 1st down ? Who knows....

Wan't sure but may have been in the first one. How about the bad punt that went out of bounds around the 25 instead of pinning us deep in our territory

    • Supe..I appreciate the effort ...... 3 things..come to mind   Of the 3 vets Boston would LOVE to give us for PG, ..Avery Bradley has quality..a former all-star Unless I have misread his birth date, Paul George will be 27 next season..... all next season...His birthday is May 2. He will eventually be better than LeBron because LeBron will decline..its inevitable. LeBron will be 33 next year   ..and if, we do your deal and, as you say, we are competitive in the East for the title in 3 years and, since he's a solid shooter with insane wingspan  Fultz proves to be even better than Paul George..(lets say that happens) .... ...Fultz will, in 3 years,  be one year from free agency and we will have to get a big name free agent or he will walk.(sound familiar?)   The whole thing is just kicking the can down the road.....and not trying to win now Eventually, you have to go for it. I believe, as I know you know, that time is now..next year..... 2017-2018  
    • To be fair, the team he was on doesn't exactly match up well against those better teams    But I see your point 
    • My tastes vary between Metal to Death Metal to Hard Rock to Rap to R&B.   So right now..... Favorite Metal tune all-time:  "Orion" by Metallica - even though no vocals, perfect blend of musicianship Favorite Death Metal tune all-time:  TIE!  "Biomech" by Allegaeon and "Proponent For Sentience II: The Algorithm"  by Allegaeon - I know you don't know them but take my word for it Favorite Hard Rock tune all-time:  "Unchained" by Van Halen (not Van Hagar) - so many by VH but it's my fav Favorite Rap tune all-time: "Nuthin But a G Thang" by Dre/Dogg - that intro tho; I don't smoke but if I did I could see myself doing it with this playing in the background LOL Favorite R&B tune all-time:  "This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan, although "Congratulations" by Post Malone is making a run for me right now
    • You just don't get the concept of the matching salaries required in NBA trades... If NY wanted to trade Carmelo to us they would have to take matching salaries.. .....they would then release the players with expiring contracts they didn't want.   Understand?
    • I've worked third shift a couple times prior to my current job, both at an airport and in a factory. I always had a hard time getting adequate sleep no matter how dark I made the room, lol.  Just knowing it was daytime threw me off.   My current line of work is hard on my sleep schedule....I never really go into a deep sleep, and get woken up often, even when I'm home. I've been an insomniac for years though, since high school really, friends used to call me a vampire because I was always up late into the night wrenching on my cars or just hangin out, lol.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
