So watching the Super Bowl, I realized there could be a major loophole in the NFL rule book. The Patriots, with less than a minute left, were left with no other option but to go for a touchdown to win the game. On a 2nd and 10 play that started with about 23 seconds left, the Patriots went for a pass that ended up incomplete but dwindled the game time down to 9 seconds. There was a penalty on the Giants for 12 men on the field which the Patriots accepted resulting in a 5 yard penalty but it did not reset the game clock. Here is where I realized the loop hole. The penalty is only 5 yards and knowing that the Patriots needed a touchdown, the Giants could have trotted out 25 men on the field to play defense and even though the flag would still be thrown, the end result would have been the game clock would continue to dwindle down according to the duration of the play. The worst that could have happened was the game clock dwindled down to 0 and the Patriots get one more chance but at only 5 yards closer.
