when san diego beat kansas city yesterday, the chargers knocked out the steelers.
the bolts beat the chiefs thanks to a missed field goal that should have never been.
the chargers lined up wrong, right in front of an official, but were not flagged.
today the nfl admitted it, which was nice
With 0:08 remaining in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers, Kansas City faced a fourth-and-12 from the San Diego 23. The Chiefs attempted a 41-yard field that was no good,” the league said in a statement. “On the play, San Diego lined up with seven men on one side of the snapper. This should have been penalized as an illegal formation by the defense.
Rule 9, Section 1, Article 3(b)(1) of the NFL Rule Book (page 51) states that ‘No more than six Team B players may be on the line of scrimmage on either side of the snapper at the snap.’ The rule was adopted this year as a player safety measure.
The penalty for illegal formation by the defense is a loss of five yards. This rule is not subject to instant replay review. Had the penalty been assessed, it would have resulted in a fourth-and-7 from the San Diego 18 with 0:04 remaining, enabling the Chiefs to attempt a 36-yard field goal.
but they won’t get the teams together and play those 8 seconds again. that interests me.
you have made a mistake, you miraculously admit it, but you won’t resolve it?
these are professional football players and officials. they shouldn’t have anything else on their schedules.
play the 8 seconds tonight on monday night football.
but no. some humans just feel totally ok wandering in mediocrity and letting excuses prevail over excellence.
cant wait to be nfl commissioner.
