Pats Benefit From Controversial Call on Sunday

The New England Patriots beat the New York Jets on Sunday by a score of 24-17, but the Pats greatly benefited from an odd officiating decision in the fourth quarter. Trailing 24-14, the Jets appeared to score a touchdown when tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins lost the ball right before the goal line, but then recovered it in the endzone, appearing for it to be a touchdown.

The Patriots “love” the worst rule in the NFL after it helped them beat the Jets 24-17. https://t.co/FaHqIvRODB

But the refs said that Seferian-Jenkins fumbled the ball and landed out of bands when he recovered it, which makes it a touchback and not a touchdown.
