What if the Ben Watson play was called correctly?

Since Ben Watson has recently rejoined the New England Patriots, I thought the second “What If” article should be about his play against Denver in the AFC Divisional Game in the 2005 season. It is, in my opinion, one of the worst calls in NFL history (there might be an article coming about another one some time soon). The ramifications from that play could have changed the outcome of not only the game, but the entire playoffs that season.

With 1:03 left in the third quarter of a 10-6 game, Tom Brady took the snap from the Broncos’ 5-yard line.
