Shorts and Shells: Week 13
At this point, knowing that they can’t stop the clock again or force much worse than a 21-yard field-goal attempt, the Vikings needed to let the Broncos score. It’s what many people feel the Packers did to the Broncos at the end of Super Bowl XXXII. Otherwise, the Broncos could just milk the clock and kick the game-winner…A week after foolishly going for it on 4th-and-goal down 10 points at Atlanta — although showing some nerve in the process — Frazier went soft. He was outcoached. Now maybe a smart player such as Tim Tebow sees the Vikings are allowing the Broncos to score and he takes a knee before the goal line, a la Maurice Jones-Drew against the Jets a few years ago or Brian Westbrook against the Cowboys.
