What makes matters even worse they even called a TO after they ran it instead of letting the clock run. Didn't matter anyway because of how quick BAL was able to score and tie the game....but by no means was that a calculated decision. You go for the 1st down on 3rd down n 7....always....always.....always. Only time I see where it's probably not a good idea is if you're backed up on your own 2-3yd line or something. Even then I'd still think I'd try to get the first down on 3rd n 7, instead of essentially giving the ball back on 3rd down...wasted play...stupid ass decision.
Give your sarcasm meter one of these.
