For subjective fans, yes, VERY good game.
But for me, persoanlly, as a PAts fan, it was incredibly frustrating. I'm not talking officials here. I'm talking:
-Being up 13-0, and watching that fizzle into a 13-14 defecit
-Watching two INTs get flat-out dropped, and a third hit the ground because a DB hit an apparent ice patch
-Being up 9 in the 4th and finding a way to s n a t c h (as in grab, not female anatomy) defeat from the jaws of victory
-When it mattered most, watching the D and O fail miserably
Baltimore is a GOOD team, and to lose to them by a single point is, on the surface, nothing to be frustrated about. But, considering those 4 points above, it leaves a sour taste in my mouth. I am not used to seeing this team lose games like that, they simply shouldn't as evidenced by their, now, 105-5 record in games they lead by 9+ in the 4th quarter under BB.
But, again, when I take my Pats garb off and look as an NFL fan, yes, that was an extremely exciting game by the class of the AFC.
Now my garb is back on and I want to punch something.
