Was it actually the right call to go for it on 4th and 2 from your own 28? I keep going back and forth on that. But if you follow the Patriots like I do, you know they went for it in a similar position against the Atlanta Falcons earlier in the year.
Anyway, let me take some great photos and video from around the web and replay this nightmare over and over again. I am a glutton for punishment.
4th and 2 on your own 28 yard line with a little over 2 minutes to go and the great Peyton Manning licking his chops on the sideline. For $1 million dollars, what do you do?

And then this happened:
Which led to this face!
-Great screengrab from The Sports Hernia
And then the inevitable Peyton Manning to Reggie Wayne touchdown
Finally ending with one of Belichick’s henchman throwing down an NFL Films cameraman.
Why does this hurt so much?!?!
