That fumble for a TD was Ben holding the ball way too long because every WR was running deep. It was stupid and it nearly cost us the game.

Defensively we dominated that game. 2 TD's on turnovers. Horrible ST's play, and ton of penalties was the only reason the Ravens were in that game.
Tomlin can't control the offensive play calling... The offense could be perfectly prepared during the week, but Arians has like his "errr what's football" moments during the game. I think he gets too much blame sometimes for the offense.

Ben's fumble was another stupid call, you're right. You don't call slow developing pass plays near the goal line. We took a safety a couple weeks ago for pretty much the same crap.
Fumble was all on Ben. He pumped twice and took way too long. The worst play call IMO was a reverse when we were driving and Wallace took a loss. After watching the game again this morning its hard to complain, we used that same formation and faked the reverse instead handing off to Mendy and they were pretty much his most productive runs. He gained 10 plus on both and they were key runs. So the in the big picture that play could have set up some good runs. Our offense was 4 for 5 in red zone TD's and we had some big first downs when we had to go 20 or 25 yards instead of 10 due to BS roughness call on Hines and other penalties. The Ravens D is no slouch, we weren't playing the Browns.
