    In the 4th quarter, there were two plays between 5 and 6 min left. A Maroney run; and a Faulk screen pass. Both times they went out of bounds (did not fall on the ground as far as i saw) and both times the clock kept running. At the time I didn't think it was that big of a deal; but now looking back, that may have been a huge deal.
    Should the clock have stopped there? Am I missing something?
    Either way, our OLine was horrible and the Giants deserved to win.

    When there is more than 5:00 left in the game, the clock stops only temporarily on an out of bounds play. It restarts once the ball is set for ready for play.

    With 5:00 or less in the game, the clock stops on out of bounds until it is next snapped.

    It was probably a wash, but the FOX game clock got really goofy from 1:28 left until about 56 seconds left in the game. It didn't start for an entire play, then it reset to about 1:16, then back up to 1:22. It was like Mercury Morris was on crack running the clock.

    Again, no excuse, no freaking conspiracy, but weird.

    Is it under 2 minutes that if a player is injured they are forced to take a time out? Isn't there some rule in there about that?

    I noticed that too. There was a play that took way longer than 6 seconds.
