you will end up seeing them play right across the goal line right ere. and just not give up anything deep. >> al: five guys at the goal li . rams send five receivers down field. goff to the end zone. too high. intended for josh reynolds. with no flag, that's the end of the game. >> cris: they went after the smaller maddox. good idea.ul cod not get it executed. >> al: the philadelphia gles. big underdogs. foles at quarterback. they pull off a huge win.
