Default Re: 2014 NFL Thread

other game changers were not due to rules:

1. there was a run up the middle that got the ball stripped... there was clear daylight and the strip saved 7
2. at the end of the first half (think that was the time in the game), GB blocked a FG then turned around and drove and got a FG. 6 point swing when they were down.

So, yes, the rules and refs are all screwed up this year, but that's not the sole reason Dallas lost.

The "drop" was a huge play though. I think that would not have been a catch in prior year's rules as well... just now they have mandatory replays and better cameras for playoffs than in years past, IMO.
