It’s definitely not often that a football player is praised for his decision *not* to score a touchdown in a football game, but that was certainly the case during the end of Saturday night’s game between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins when Bills running back Devin Singletary went down ahead of the goal line late in the fourth quarter.

The Bills had the ball late in the fourth quarter with the score tied at 29 and 39 seconds left on the clock. Devin Singletary had a chance to score a go-ahead touchdown in the red zone. But instead, he chose to go down at the four-yard line, setting up a game-winning 25-yard field goal. And most importantly, it ensured that the Dolphins wouldn’t get the ball back.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott praised his running back for the decision.

“Great situational awareness by Motor,” McDermott said of his running back after the game.

According to McDermott, this was something the team specifically worked on in practice.

“We had talked about it. We call it ‘no mas,’ which means no more,” McDermott said. “You’re expecting them to potentially allow you to score right there, based on where the game was, where we had the ball, and the timeout situation.”

While McDermott and the Bills were certainly happy to see him go down, it’s safe to say some Fantasy Football owners wanted to see him punch it into the end zone.
