On the Texans 3 and 18 in overtime, the play clock was at 0 for 2 seconds...

No Flag.

The Blindside block was a horrible call.
The Refs gave the game to the Texans.

He didn't drop it. He tossed the ball to the ref, and the ref backed away from it, because he knew the ball was still live.

Then after the bills scored, they changed their minds, disregarding the letter of the rule.
that ref is an IDIOT!

a FORWARD PASS does not create a Live Ball situation!

I don't recall if an Illegal Forward Pass is a penalty, but definitely Not a FUMBLE!

Houston's ball no matter whether there is a penalty or not.

Buffalo definitely got screwed many times, but....

they should have put the game away when they had a shot. You can’t leave average teams around or you’ll get beat
Saints fans should never say this. It likes some other fans say the Saints should’ve put the Rams away earlier last year. They had many chances too.

He clearly wasn't going to return it and tossed the ball to the ref who didn't acknowledge that fact. The ball wasn't live.

Lol we should have. Yes, the refs totally screwed us out of that game. But, that’s a completely different scenario and not even a tiny bit similar to this scenario. Regardless, even with that worst call in history, we still had a shot to get it done and we failed

As he didn't wave off defenders, signaling a fair catch, step out of the end zone, or kneel, the ball, in accordance of the rules, was live. What he "clearly" was going to do is immaterial. The ball was live.

And yet this type of thing happens in almost every game and they never call it so why did they all of a sudden decide to initially call it yesterday? Besides he tossed it forward so it would've been an illegal forward pass so still their ball.

it wasn't a passing situation, therefore not a pass, but a fumble.

Just because the other team made a heads up play and recovered it for a TD....


Y'know what? You and I are NEVER going to agree on pretty much. ANYTHING. I'm done with you.
Seriously? If that's how you wanna roll that's fine by me.

I honestly couldn't even enjoy the Titans game yesterday because I just kept waiting for the call on those last couple of drives to change the game. I expected there to be at least a few phantom hold calls to force the Titans to pass instead of run the clock out with Henry.

How is it different if I am not a Saints fan?

He did signal a fair catch: That arms straight out gesture they've been doing all year.

They just didn't replay it on TV.

A forward pass is not illegal...but a forward lateral is. I am spitballing...but the forward pass in the endzone without taking it out of the endzone is a Safety??? Other than that, he was giving the ball to the ump in a gesture of not running the ball out of the endzone which is giving up on the play...which could be presumed to be for player safety. Players give themselves up in the field of play on fumbles and other options for player safety. So I dont know the answer.
