I’m kind of tired of saying this, but the NFL needs to overhaul its rule books once and for all.
“The rulebook benefitted a receiver, in this case, but typically it’s the defense that gets good news when the replay command center takes over. Devonta Freeman had a touchdown wiped away in Week 5; in Week 3 it was Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert’s turn to lose a score. The Cowboys might have been playing for a trip to the Super Bowl last January if Dez Bryant’s fourth-quarter reception in the divisional playoffs at Lambeau Field wasn’t overturned. And then there’s the Patient Zero of the NFL’s catch rule, Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.” – Reported by Dan Hanzus
