The Philadelphia Eagles got a second life on a key drive Sunday when officials called a leverage penalty on the Los Angeles Rams. The only problem was nobody could see where a violation occurred.
called on linebacker Samson Ebukam,Jake Elliott hit a field goal with just under six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter to give the Eagles a 37-35 lead. The leverage penalty, and punted after not getting a first down. Those lost two minutes were huge when the Eagles ran down the clock to seven seconds remaining before punting it. The Rams had the chance to run just one more offensive play, gave the Eagles 15 yards and an automatic first down. The Eagles took about two minutes off the clock before Elliott hit a field goal to end the drive. The Rams got the ball back with less than four minutes left, and the win could have huge implications in seeding for the NFC playoffs (though obviously Carson Wentz’s injury affects everything the rest of the way).,Authentic Cam Newton Jersey, and the Eagles returned a lateral for a touchdown to win 43-35. The Eagles clinched the NFC East title with the win
The problem with the call on Ebukam was that nobody could find a clear penalty. It looked like a normal field goal rush on replays.
“Nothing I see that merits a call at all,Authentic Luke Kuechly Jersey, the former NFL head of officiating who is generally very accurate in his officiating analysis.,Womens Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey,” said Fox’s Mike Pereira
” Fox analyst Troy Aikman said. “He didn’t do anything and I didn’t see much for anybody else.”,Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey,“It certainly wasn’t Ebukam
including: “Using the hands or other parts of the body to push off an offensive blocker to gain leverage in an effort to block the kick.” If that happened on the Eagles’ attempt,Womens Walter Payton Jersey, it wasn’t obvious,Womens Luke Kuechly Jersey,The NFL made penalties on field-goal attempts a point of emphasis,Authentic Walter Payton Jersey, and that’s a tough call to make that late in the game when it’s not a clear foul. Even if Ebukam was misidentified, nobody on the Fox broadcast could identify anyone else who committed a leverage penalty.
an expert in his field,Womens Cam Newton Jersey, didn’t see anything he could even identify as a foul,Authentic Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey,Considering Pereira,Womens Jordan Howard Jersey, it’s fair to assume the Rams won’t be pleased with it either.
