I don't understand why they declined it. Isn't loss of down part of the penalty for illegal forward pass?

I don’t know. It wasn’t an illegal forward lateral. I think if QB passes the LOS I think it’s a loss of down.

I’ve never seen a pass get batted back, caught and then passes again to someone who caught it.

Might’ve been a mistake by the refs but lol I don’t know.

Can you believe that McVay doesn't know it's loss of down?

It's not.  Only loss of down if the illegal pass is thrown from beyond the LOS

Why did they run on 3rd and 8? To the weak side.

It's one of those rules that is different in college and NFL. I've seen it before in college, and I remembered that it was 5 yards and loss of down (as all illegal forward passes are in college). The NFL has different categories, some are just 5 yards, and some are 5 yards and loss of down. The illegal forward pass resulting from being the second forward pass behind the neutral zone in the NFL is just 5 yards.

I don't think Brady forgot the rules.  What he ended up doing ended up better off than if he would slapped the rebound too the ground.  And if he would have completed it across the 1st down marker, they would have accepted the penalty and got another shot on the replay of 3rd down.

Down 4 with a quarter left and you fake a punt there?

Dumb....very dumb.

Absolutely ridiculous. The 4th and inches decision earlier was fine. The play call was trash. That is just mind numbingly dumb.

I can’t find a defense for it....even had it worked they were still 45 yards from FG range and a whole quarter left....not like Washington had all the momentum

I think it's actually kind of impressive that after roughly 15 years as a head coach and having offensive assistant experience before that, McCarthy STILL hasn't figured out how to handle fourth down play calls and simply fucks them up over and over and over.

It's "trying too hard to be smart" syndrome.  Guys call plays like they're the Washington Generals playing the Harlem Globetrotters.

Some people like to say it's not that Belichick is a genius, it's just that most other HC's are so dumb (and, for some reason, the NFL keeps recycling the same guys).

Only seen a few minutes of this game, but Brady looks very old to me.

He’s looked like garbage vs anyone capable of defense this year. 3ish years in a row, now, tbh.

Due to Denver QBs being stupid, their game today had to have been hilarious to watch when they were on offense. However, due to not actually being a QB and not throwing five picks in the first half of his first start, I have to say that the practice squad WR playing the position for them today does rank higher than Nathan Peterman on the All-Time List of Quarterbacks. Might be close to the bottom, but still better than Peterman!

They've now moved the PIT/BAL game to Wednesday, and apparently moving the PIT/WAS game to Monday night.

Unreal.  Goodell is such an incompetent twat.
