    My favorite part of drives in the last two minutes is when the offense is running the next play so fast that they snap the ball before the yellow first down line appears on the TV screen. It, also, is keyed to the chains, even if in the TV room instead of the field, and sometimes the chain gang really has to hustle if they want to keep up (and hopefully remember to flip the down marker, so the referees don't mistakenly award a team a fifth down).
