Hypothetical Game Situation - you make the call

dep026 : 8/7/2019 6:51 pm
Giants up 31-28. Dallas has the ball on the Giants 43 yard line with :02 seconds left and no timeouts. Would you prefer they...

a) Kick the 62 field goal to force overtime with a chance of the Giants still winning the game.
b) Try a Hail Mary, which is less likely to succeed but ends the game if completed.

And go!

Hail Mary...

Kickers get a 10 pt Madden boost when the game is on the line from 60+ yards.

Against the Giants, that is...
I would kick the FG in that situation

So I would prefer that Dallas attempts the Hail Mary

That's assuming the kicker was hitting from that range in warm ups.

Actually I made a mistake itís 61 yards  
dep026 : 8/7/2019 9:06 pm : link
Cause the distance is 8 yards from the snap, not 7.

That's very funny.

To be fair, our residential climatologist could have been looking at other variables while concluding this was a 62 yard FG...

I don't get that. The only thing the NFL can mandate is where the ball is snapped from, which would be the 15. If teams have been routinely kicking from 7 yards back, forever, why would they move to 8 yards and make it a longer kick?

Itís been 8 for awhile. My guess is that itís harder to block it with the extra yard?
I would prefer the kick.

The NFL will screw a defense on a hail.mary this season.

The PI challenge rule change is ridiculous.

I agree with this. I don't think there is a required distance form the snap.
100 times out of 100 its B. for me  
90.Cal : 8/7/2019 9:49 pm : link
But this year is different... they will look to fuck someone on what is normally a free for all jump ball. P.I. in the endzone replay the down on the 1 then they have Zeke or any fucking replacement run it in for the win.
Try the f.g.

In that situation against the Giants has a 95% chance of being good, so I donít get the question

It would take Witten 20 seconds to run 43 yards at this point!
