The consequences of either a safety or a recovery for a TD can change the entire course of a game.
Safe plays in that situation are limited to draws and screens really .... And they do have the potential to be successful on occasion tho the odds are against it.
Agreed. They only way the tits win that game is if the Texans turn the ball over and give the tits free points. I am 100% on Kubiak's side in getting some breathing room for his punter, getting the ball out of our end of the field, and trusting the defense to hold the tacks from scoring.
