Default If the final touchdown hadn't been overturned..

Go for the TD or send it to overtime with a field goal?

I say go for the TD

I totally think Tomlin would have opted to go for the go ahead score. Being at the 2inch line and all.

Tough choice. I believe Tomlin would have called for a QB sneak.

I think I would have kicked the field goal and trusted the defense to carry it out.

Tomlin has balls of steel, he would have grabebd them and gone for the go-ahead score.

Me? I have balls of skin, I would have followed the old mantra of go for the tie on the road.

faced with that choice I'd probably start crying and ask Ben what he wanted to do.

One of the many reasons I'm not a head coach

Seeing how lucky we have been in winning coin flips, I would've went for it.

The Ravens O was tired. Even though they got those passes to bring it down to Pitt 39 their will was sapped. I would have played it conservatively and kicked the field goal to tie. Remember with our run game you have to double the distance needed. So that spot which looked to make the ball 6-7 inches converts to a foot and couple of inches.

Even Ray Lewis admitted defeat on Sportscenter.

Their defense allowed us to go 93 yards in the final stretch. We won the game.

Even if they didn't allow the TD at the end (which if you look at the camera angle from above it CLEARLY breaks the plain).. , we would've still gotten it, on the final inches drive. The game is over. We beat the Ravens, twice.

We've had the toughest schedule in the NFL, overcome TERRIBLE ref calls, and defeated very strong teams. Perhaps its good game calling, good plays, great time management.... and not "dumb luck"

I think they would have gone for it. If you can't get two inches then you don't deserve it. IMO
