Patriots got lucky with another TD reversal and Twitter is melting down

Patriots got lucky with another TD reversal and Twitter is melting down”

The discussion is over.

Benjamin's touchdown triggered an automatic replay review by the NFL's central replay office.

Proof positive that the league doesn't actually care about what is and isn't a catch is that the NFL actively advertises this as a highlight on the league's official site as though it's just part of the action.

"We know we've got to have, you know, some things have to happen (to make the playoffs)", White said. As a matter of fact, Dean Blandino, who was the head of replay last year, said last year that was a touchdown. Otherwise, if there was any debate, it should remain as called.

"Regarding the Buffalo no touchdown, nothing more irritating to an official than to make a great call and then someone in a suit in an office in NY incorrectly reverses it", former National Football League officiating VP Mike Pereira wrote on Twitter.

Watching Benjamin's play frame-by-frame in slow motion on Sunday, it seemed possible that the ball might have still been slightly loose when Benjamin's left toes dragged. So, his back foot was already off the ground and it stepped out of bounds.

The NFL felt differently.

"It was clear and obvious that he did not have control of the ball until he brought it all the way down into his chest", Wrolstad said in a pool report.

"When Kelvin Benjamin gains control, his left foot is off the ground", the league's department announced on Twitter. He insisted that the definition of what made a play worthy of reversal had not changed.

"I don't know what's going on, but we have to fix it", he said. "The standard has not changed".

That's an incredible response given the video evidence that millions of people have seen. But then you have to take into account how long the individuals making the decision have been in this room. Buffalo's defense registered three sacks and held Tom Brady without a scoring pass for only the second time this season in the first meeting.

"It's Christmas Eve, I'm out there doing what I love to do with a great group of guys ... it was definitely a lot of fun and I'm just happy we won", he said.

Instead of a Benjamin touchdown, Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka converted a 23-yard field goal to tie the game at 13 entering halftime. "We just had to move on and come out in the second half and try to put some more points on the board".

In this case, the Bills lost points in a game in which they are fighting for their playoff chances. "A loss as to, I saw it as a touchdown".
