That wasn't the time nor the place for a Kill Shot. I'll give credit to Coughlin for admitting it wasn't his best call.
Given the down, the distance, the score, the time on the clock..... the right call is a running play, or else a play-action, high percentage pass underneath to Bennett if he's open....if not, throw the ball away to stop the clock.
Coughlin is a great coach, and he learns from his mistakes. That won't happen again under his watch.
I was thinking this morning that this team does rely on the big play a little too much.
