I thought it was bulls—, but I expected it from them,” Fangio said. “在 37 years of pro ball, I’ve never seen anything like that. But it was to be expected, and we expected it.

Because I just know how they operate,” Fangio replied when asked why. “That’s just their mode of operation there. Player safety is secondary.

他继续: “What’s meaningful to us might not be meaningful to them. Their concerns are definitely not our concerns. We didn’t expect to get the ball back. We decided that, if we get the ball back, we were going to try to get the yards.

Harbaugh threw some shade of his own, noting that the reason the Ravens even got the ball back was because the Broncos were throwing to the end zone late in the game.
