Just missed it: Week 9

It was a pretty light week in terms of the just missed it plays, but here’s what we picked up watching the tape from Week Nine.

  • Marvin Jones had a long TD taken off the board because of a holding call by Jermaine Gresham.
  • Leodis McKelvin punt return taken off the board by penalty
  • Jeff Tuel just missed Woods in back of end zone for potential TD, nearly made acrobatic catch for TD later in game
  • Steven Jackson has a TD run taken off the board because of a holding call.
  • Stl PK Greg Zuerlein missed a 43-yard attempt in the waning seconds of the first half.
  • Stl’s last drive in the game’s final 15 seconds, 4th and 4 at Ten 26, Clemens throws for WR Austin Pettis who gets a hand on the ball but can’t haul it in.
  • Preceding the final drive, Tavon Austin nearly broke a punt return for a TD but stepped out of bounds along the way.
  • Was PK Kai Forbath has his 25-yard FG attempt blocked on Redskins opening drive. Tough to take for Washington which had a 16-play, 92-yard drive consume 9:03 and come up with nothing.
  • Forbath missed a long one to end the first half, no good from about 59 yards, that was blocked also.
  • Robert Griffin III passes to TE Logan Paulsen early in 3rd but Paulsen’s forward progress ruled stopped just shy of goal line on 2nd and G from the SD 2.
  • Alfred Morris has several red zone and goal to go carries but didn’t have the finishing touch in this game.
  • Keenan Allen just missed on a red zone target late in 4th quarter on drive in which SD settled for a FG and tie to send game to OT.
  • TB early in third quarter, Mike Glennon throwing to Tiquan Underwood in end zone but ball deflected off of his hands, Bucs had to settle for a FG.
  • Rob Gronkowski caught what looked to have a short TD but fell short midway thru 1st qtr.
  • Stevan Ridley came up short on run on 4th and goal in first qtr.
  • NE RB Brandon Bolden got a red zone carry and nearly carried it in for a score from about 12 yards out late 2nd qtr.
  • Gronk gets a lot of red zone looks in the end zone Tom Brady just missed him on two shots on final drive of first half for NE. Pats scored on a Ridley run.
  • Ben Roethlisberger for Antonio Brown midway thru 4th, nearly a 56-yard TD but just underthrew it and gave opportunity for D to tip passes away.
  • Nick Toon lets long pass from Brees hit off his hands while diving…would’ve been at least 50 yard play
  • Chris Ivory was tripped up by a hand and had plenty of open space for him, could’ve been a 70+ yard TD run
  • Referees blew whistle to stop play just before Andrew Luck fumbled it…would’ve set up a Hou first down in Colts RZ
  • Randy Bullock’s second miss…he missed 3 including one as time expired, but they could’ve used at least 1 of those FGs and the second one missed by a yard or so
  • Martellus Bennett looked like he had a TD but was ruled down at the ½ yard line, not much of a factor in this game
  • Eddie Lacy almost had 57 yard TD…shed all tacklers but one and taken out of bounds at the 1 (he was given the ball on the 1 yard line though to punch it in)
