    OTOH, if it doesn't work, then you still need a 3-point conversion later on. I don't blame Belichick (Mr. Testaverde makes history last week, Mr. Flutie this week).

    It was a great call all around. Flutie deserved that.

    Going for the one-point conversion was the by-the-book right thing to do in that situation, far too often teams go for 2 way too early and it hurts them in the end (remember Carolina in the Super Bowl?) Even with the 2 points we would still have been down by 4 and needed a TD.
