3 rd quarter and 4th and six. Would be dumb to go for it there IMO. Take the 3pts. Plenty of time still. 4th and 3 or 2 then going for it makes more sense.

I will continue to maintain the philosophy that FG's do nothing but set you up to lose the game. The way the Falcons offense is moving down the field I don't have a choice but to go for it on 4th and 6. Now if Atlanta comes back and makes it 33-13 then the game will be just about over but not if it was 33-21

Only because the Falcons offense has moved the ball at will all night and now in position to go up 33-13. Falcons offense is scoring every time they get the ball and at the worst it will be 29-13 forcing seattle in the same position they was in before the flag.

Game is over regardless if Seattle keeps allowing Atlanta to score.

Nope. Held them to a FG. 3rd quarter. 4th and six. Can't go for it in that situation.

Russell Wilson is capable of this type of comeback but they need some miracle turnovers. Their defense is surely not going to stop this offense.

This wasn't a great series by Ryan, so they go for a FG. They really should have scored. Sure the guy dropped a pass he could've caught, but the coverage looked like Ryan could have walked forward for a few yards.

You can't play it safe when there are no more games to play if you lose tonight. Kicking a FG would make sense if it was week 11 but not in a do or die game with the Falcons up 26-10 in the 3rd qtr. You gotta got for it at some point since time is a ticking. Now what if the seahawks get the ball and get in the redzone again and it's 4th and 5? Do they kick another FG to make it 29-16 with 13 mins left? Or go for it and aim for 29-21?

Ryan looked good on that drive it was the receiver who dropped the ball. I;m just glad Ryan didn't aim for the endzone on 3rd and 15 leading to a possible INT. lol

Falcons don't need to be passing so much since they have the lead and 12 mins left. They are keeping the seahawks in the game
