That sealed the game right there. It was pretty tense until that whole thing got resolved, after that I knew we had this thing bagged.

Bills game happened right after Taylor's death so NO ONE was thinking properly during that time. BUT....today......He saved OUR SEASON

For all the grief that the national media gave Gibbs after trying to ice the Buffalo kicker twice, the media needs to point out the brilliance of this challenge. Retaining posession and punching it in for a TD pretty well clinched the game. Kudos to Gibbs for holding the team together through unbelievable adversity and coaching one of his finest games with everything on the line.

The Buffalo timeout snafu was overblown IMO. Their kicker would have nailed that 2nd kick from 55 as well as he hit that ball.

Great call for the GREAT COACH!

What a GREAT X-MAS gift from my beloved REDSKINS! ONE MORE TIME.....Before the dance starts!

IMO there is not a better coach in the entire league that we could have at the helm.

I didn't think you could challenge something like that? Are you allowed to challenge a penalty as well? My assumption at the time was if the ref's missed it to bad. It helped make up for that ridiculous challenge earlier in the game when they took a TD away from Sellars, I am still waiting to see a conclusive replay that actually shows him not in, and to actually over turn the call on the field from anything I saw was a joke.

Instant Replay is still stupid because the trust is that a limited amount of camera angles can dispute an unlimited amount of visual angles from the field.

I mean, it's good when calls get blatently missed, but how often does that happen? For every blatent missed call that gets corrected, you have five Mike Sellers plays.

Very adamently, I say, instant replay must go.

gtripp, instant relay is here to stay. i think it was voted on to remain permanent at the last owners meetings. as for the challenge, one word. brilliant. i hope it comes out who made that call. and it was done very fast, too. does everyone here think that Santana Moss was in bounds? i say he dragged his back foot, making it a catch

As far as I can see, Joe Gibbs has totaly redeemed himself. Yeah the double time out was bad, but this is the most incredible turn around I have ever seen from the Redskins. When we lost to Buffalo for the first time I was wanting Joe to resign, now he is a GD genious in my mind.

Was that Moss catch not a catch? It looked like a catch to me. I know the skins didn't know immediately but it looked good...right?

It looked like it was going to get overturned, actually.

You said "oh snap Gibbs"? Hitting the holiday spirits a little hard last night, were you?

Superb challenge. I don't know where it came from, but someone made a great call.
