There were two calls on the Falcons' game-winning drive with a minute left in the fourth quarter which will be talked about in the Baltimore area at length in the days to come.
Here's how Ravens head coach John Harbaugh reacted to those calls after the game, when asked by reporters in Atlanta:
Play No. 1: Michael Jenkins' fingertip grab
With the Falcons facing a third-and-10 from their own 20 with 55 seconds left, quarterback Matt Ryan looked for wide receiver Michael Jenkins along the left sideline. Jenkins reached up for the ball and officials ruled it a completed pass, saying that the receiver had possession with both feet inbounds.
The booth reviewed the play, and while Jenkins had the ball in his fingertips through the catch, it was questionable whether he possessed the ball through the catch. Harbaugh was seen shaking his head after the booth confirmed the call on the field.
Harbaugh's take: "I'm not going to comment on that stuff. They go under the booth, they do the best they can, and they make the decisions that they make. They looked at it, and that's the decision they made."
Play No. 2: Roddy White's touchdown catch
With 27 seconds left and the Falcons with possession at the Baltimore 33, Roddy White was matched up with cornerback Josh Wilson in 1-on-1 coverage. As White came out of his break and cut toward the left sideline, he appeared to give a little shove to Wilson, who went falling to the ground. Ryan hit the wide open White for a 33-yard TD, and Wilson was left flapping his arms in the air looking for an offensive pass interference flag on White which never came.
Harbaugh's take: "Yeah, I saw it. I'm not going to give an opinion on it. I think you guys all saw it. Everybody can have their own opinion on it. We were fighting like crazy to try and cover him, and fighting like crazy to get there and try to get him stopped."
The Jenkins play was probably one of those where however the play was called on the field, that's how it would stand after a review. The ball did appear to move a bit in Jenkins' hand, but he also had possession in his fingertips
As for the no-call for pass interference on White, you're not going to get that call in that situation on the road. If the refs throw a flag in that spot, you'll hear people screaming that they should let the players play and allow the guys in pads to determine the outcome of the game.
That said, if this game is played in Baltimore, I wouldn't be surprised if a flag comes down there.
For me, the bigger issue on that final play is Wilson being left in single coverage on a guy who had already burned the Ravens for 105 yards and a touchdown before that snap had even taken place.
White had been eating the Baltimore secondary alive all night, and if I'm defensive coordinator Greg Mattison, I put two guys on White and force someone else to beat me. If Brian Finneran makes a game-winning touchdown grab because he beats single-man coverage, I can live with that.
I understand that Mattison wanted to bring pressure at Ryan and try and get a sack to knock Atlanta out of field goal range, and if he didn't bring a blitz, some might question that decision. But I still think you have to give Wilson some help.
Put an average NFL cornerback 1-on-1 on a guy as good as Roddy White, and more often than not, you'll end up with the result that we got - White standing in the end zone celebrating.
