I think that one to the left about 25 was actually one of his best throws of the night and bounced off Sims gut.
Point stands, though.
That throw was outside the pocket though, so he didn't throw across the field to his left. It was basically the equivalent of throwing to the left hash if he was in the middle of the field.
Also, he has to throw that ball to Burton in the end zone. By the time he saw it, the safety (Dix) saw it, so maybe he thought he couldn't get it there, but he literally made the same throw earlier in the game in a much tighter window to Robinson.
He also needs to throw that TD to Cohen on the wheel route on their final drive with the lead. Collinsworth said it was good coverage, but the 270lb LB was beat and never turned around. Easy TD.
