Yeah, it was an awesome pass and catch by AB but why did he run out of bounds? I've rewatched the play a ton of times and he had plenty of room and it wasn't like he was angled out. If Boswell missed that long FG and we lost the game, AB's mental error here would be partly to blame along with our terrible defensive performance.

I'm not trying to shit on our awesome win but mental errors like this can cost you big time. If anybody wants to rewatch it, video is below. It won't let you play it on here, link to it below.

First off, I don't think AB gets more than another 5 yards before that trailing defender jumps on his back... and secondly, I fixed your link... take off the "s" in "https", and you can't use the mobile link.

I thought he could have cut upfield too. But really his concentration is on the clean catch and making sure it’s in bounds. That bit of mental processing is probably enough to get tackled anyway.

Yep. Securing the ball and getting two feet down is foremost. In that split second between a drop and a potential game winning catch, if he drifts OOB, then so be it. We are talking about a split second here.

I’ll never question anything AB does. Ever.

Looking big at it again I don’t think he could have gotten the EZ

That play was 3rd and 5 too. Some clutch shit right there by 7 and 84

I agree. He may have been able to tightrope for another 5-10, but his slight, angled momentum was taking him out of bounds. Maybe he wanted to make sure Carr didn't have a chance to make him not complete the catch if he went down from a tackle. Who knows, but I give AB the benefit of the doubt because he's shown time and time again what great physical and mental awareness he has in those moments.

Another thing that’s funny is all those third down and 2 bombs down the sideline finally hit when we need them to sweep the rats and win the division

Ben on the night for 3rd downs: 9/14 for 154 (plus at least 2 Bell conversions on 3rd downs and at least 1 defensive flag on 3rd), against the #1 defense in the NFL to this point.
