Eagles clock management mistake could have cost them the game

Posted by John T. Reed on

Huge clock management mistake by Eagles scoring their last TD when all they needed was a FG after running the clock down. But they survived it.
They violated the enough-versus-more principle, which is prominent in my clock-management book. They should have stayed out of the end zone just got into first and goal then taken a knee three times. NE only had one timeout. Each knee takes about :42 off the clock. Stop the clock with :03 then kick the game-winning FG with :03 at the snap. No chance for the Pats to come back.
