I can't believe how the Patriots-Jets game ended. On a missed Jets field goal attempt to win the game, the refs threw a flag on the Patriots' rookie Chris Jones for a ticky-tacky push of a teammate into the pile. The ruling was unsportsmanlike conduct, which gave the Jets an automatic first down and, thus, an easy distance field goal to win the game.
Apparently the NFL rulebook reading is "Rule 913: Team B players cannot push teammates on the line of scrimmage into offensive formation," but it's amazing how bogus of a call it is when applied like that. I can't remember the last time it was used in a game.
I'm far from being a Patriots fan, but hard not to believe they were robbed on this one. Once again, the NFL is the No Fun League. Flag football in high school gym class was more physical than professional football. Hell, touching isn't even allowed anymore. I'm beginning to think we're better off watching rugby, you guys.
The Jets just won via the most ticky-tacky rule in NFL history. Apparently you're not allowed to touch anyone in football anymore.— BroBible (@BroBible) October 20, 2013
