We now know how they stuffed the play, they knew the play.

Seriously, though, I strongly believe that a team should never give away its own momentum, and it looks like MT agrees...

It is frustrating to see leads evaporate & momentum shift.

Also, IMO we'll know what Tomlin is truly made of by his decision making in more critical situations. Yes, every game is critical, but given the circumstances on his 4th and short call, I personally felt it wasn't as difficult a decision to make as it might be in a close game against Baltimore (as jazz stated) perhaps with the playoffs on the line, etc.
