Samuel pick-six turns things around in Atlanta

With the game knotted at 13 and the Raiders driving for a go-ahead score late, Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel did what he failed to do in crunch time of Super Bowl XLII.

Samuel held onto the ball.

More specifically, he jumped a route and ran 79 yards, with a minor stop-and-start needed to avoid the flailing arms of the man who delivered the interception.

The Falcons lead by seven with time running out, but the Raiders could still force overtime.

    Who called for a pass play, when all that was needed was the clock to run down & 3 points????

    Doesn’t matter when he gave up that long pass to Hagan, setting up the TD. That’s exactly why Philly gave him up. He gambles far too much.

    @natelan69- You are the biggest kook on this blog. Don’t be mad that these same falcons slapped your little bolts around at home- it took them a 55yd fg to beat the RAIDERS in atlanta.

    Keep savoring those regular season wins donkey, it’s all you have.

    I still want to know who was 71, and 49 that the refs called penalties on.

    Refs jobbed the Raiders 12 penalties to 2 for the Falcons gotta love these bias so called “regular” refs.

    Whaaaaa! The professional refs called too many penalties on us!!! Booohooo!

    Gee, it’s not like the Raiders have a history of being the most penalized team in the league every single year, right? Earned reputation. They weren’t even phantom calls, they just got the numbers wrong.

    You lost the game. Get over it. And he used to it, you’ve got another 11 games to lose before the year is over.
