Upon further review...

I'm with most everyone in thinking/hoping McDaniels would not call four straight passes inside the five yard line during a regular season game. However, after a little digging, his playcalling from two years ago during the Patriots big year suggests that he may well call it just like he did Saturday night. Of New England's 32 TDs that were scored from inside 5 yards (and yes, I would love to have the chance to say "scored 32 TDs from inside 5 yards" for the Broncos), 20 of them came via the pass, while only 12 came on the ground - and two of those were by Tom Brady on QB sneaks.

To me, this suggests that even in very short-yardage red zone situations, McD tends to run only as an afterthought. So while we may hope he wouldn't do what he did during the regular season, the reality is that he just might.
