Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio was not happy with the Baltimore Ravens for running the ball on the final play of their game Sunday rather than taking a knee.
Fangio didn’t mince words in a press conference Monday:
The Ravens were trying to tie the record for the most consecutive games with at least 100 rushing yards. When they intercepted Drew Lock in the fourth quarter and got the ball back with three seconds remaining and a 23-7 lead, they needed three yards to set the mark. They got five.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said it was call not to take knee with 3 seconds left, instead ran play to get record for most consecutive 100+yard rushing games. Overheard Broncos players who were livid as they walked into locker room. <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/9sports?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#9sports</a>
With the outcome decided, football etiquette suggests taking a knee to run out the clock—hence the angry reaction from Fangio and the Broncos sideline:
