So still a 2 score game (24-15) after NW coach goes for 2.  Announcers dumbfounded by the decision to go for 2.

I've seen it suggested that if you need an 8 and a 7, you should wait to go for the 8.  I'd guess it's so that you're still in a one-possession game and only have to get a stop and score with the onside kick at the very end, rather than knowing you're down two scores which changes how you try to get downfield.

I'm not certain whether I agree, but it's not unreasonable.

The bigger mistake was going for 2 at 24-9.
