Down Two in the Third Quarter, Should the Packers Have Kicked the Extra Point?
While most of the talk around the Packers victory over the Cowboys will center around the huge incompletion reversal (56% Dallas win probability to 81% Green Bay win probability) and Rodgers stellar play on a bad calf, there were two interesting decisions in the second half, both of which, Troy Aikman had plenty to say about.
The first decision: After scoring a touchdown to be down 21-19 with 1:41 left in the third quarter, should the Packers have gone for two? My immediate reaction was, yes. It's always better to know what you will need and have the information.
