With 2:58 to go in the fourth quarter Kai Forbath kicks a 48 yard field goal to go up 10.
If he missed Dallas would have the ball, at their own 38, with almost 3 minutes to go.
If Gano or Cundiff are our kickers then there are two likely outcomes in that situation:
- The FG is missed, Dallas has a real opportunity to tie the game.
- The coaching staff decides giving them the ball at the 38 isn't worth it, and we punt trying to pin them deep. With our defense this also gives Dallas a real opportunity to tie the game.
As much as I bitched about the handling of Gano, I'm happy we have someone who can hit field goals - especially when it matters.
