They make a huge difference, Gary (and I'm not even talking about other calls).
Instead of 7, the Colts only get 3 points on one play.
On the other play, they punted the ball; however we should have had the ball right there already in range of a short FG.
We should at least score 3 points there, maybe even 7.
Instead of leading 16-14 late in the third, we could have let 19-10 or 23-10.
Even after they return the KO for a TD, we would still lead 19-17 or 23-17 in the fourth quarter.
It affects the play call, as we would have been running the ball more.
When we get inside their 30 yard line, instead of Schaub getting sacked, we would likely be running the ball.
Even if we don't convert the third down, we were still in range for a FG.
We would have led 22-17 or 26-17.
It's a huge difference, Gary.
