Miami scored late on a pass to Joey Haynos that made the score 30-19. Sparano elected to go for 2. Wait. Hunh?
At the point they scored there was around 8 minutes left. Its an 11 point lead.
Going for 1 means you're ahead by 12; the Jets would have to score 2 TDs to win, even with a two point conversion.
Going for 2 means you're ahead by 13; the Jets would have to score 2 TDs to win
...but the downside in either case is that you miss and remain ahead by 11 meaning that a TD and 2 point conversion plus a field goal ties the game.
I don't see the logic in going for 2 here. So I have to assume that Sparano got mixed up in all this "high math"....or...
Maybe Carpenter had to hit the lou, and couldn't kick? Or maybe a bookie friend called to remind the Fins of the point spread? I have no idea.
It was just weird.
