Coming from behind will haunt Florida State


We have seen this show before.

Florida State plays poorly for most of the game, but pulls out a late win.

The Seminoles were down 21 points to Louisville on Thursday, before storming back and beating the Cardinals 42-31.

Jameis Winston threw three interceptions, then three touchdowns, and ultimately went over 400 yards passing. His up and down play is a big reason for these crazy comebacks.

The game against Louisville was eerily similar to games against Clemson and Notre Dame earlier this year.

The Seminoles were down late in the fourth quarter to Clemson, but a long touchdown pass forced overtime. Karlos Williams then won it with a touchdown run from 12 yards out.

Notre Dame took the lead five different times against Florida State, but it was Williams again who sealed the victory with a touchdown run.

Despite blowing a big lead, Louisville was still up three midway through the fourth quarter. A long run from Dalvin Cook gave Florida State the lead, and Winston’s third touchdown passed ended it.

Late game heroics are great and everything, but Florida State is walking a fine line. A small break here or there could have changed these outcomes, and ruined a perfect season.

The Seminoles face three ACC opponents before a meeting with Florida at home to finish up the season. They will likely dispose of the conference foes, but watch out for the Gators. If Florida State continues to play from behind, Florida could be the team to make them pay.
