#WNSTSweet16 list — Who broke our hearts in Baltimore?

February 11, 2014 | Drew Forrester

At #7…it’s Lee Evans. There’s no telling how Billy Cundiff’s tenure in Baltimore would have changed had Evans held on to the ball just three tenths of a second longer in the end zone two plays before the Cundiff miss.  Evans had a Super Bowl trip in his hands but had the ball stripped away just a blink of an eye before his second foot would have been down long enough for the play to constitute a catch and a touchdown.  Yes, the Patriots would have had somewhere in the neighborhood of twenty seconds to “work their magic” had Evans maintained control and scored a touchdown, so it’s not 100% fair to say “if Evans catches that ball the Ravens are going to the Super Bowl”, but it would have taken a miracle for New England to pull off that feat.  As it stands, the one thing we know for sure is this:  If Lee Evans holds on to that ball, Billy Cundiff doesn’t miss from 32 yards two plays later.
