    Interestingly it doesn't say that a coach can't challenge a scoring play in the abscence of of a review requested by the booth. Or is that another section?

    I still don't understand why a coach can't challenge this. If the team has to simply accept the assistants snap judgement on whether the play is reviewable, then it's no different to having to accept a refs snap decision in the field of play. If the ref is wrong you can challenge, but if the assistant is wrong you can't?

    Seems to go against the spirit of the challenge system entirely.

    Do we know for a fact that a coach can't actually challenge it?

    From the new rules 2013:
    "If a coach challenges a scoring play, a turnover, a play that began inside the two-minute warning of either half or during an overtime period, that team will be automatically charged a timeout. If the team has no timeouts remaining, it will be automatically assessed a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct."

    They did change the bit where if a coach does throw a flag on a scoring play then the play cannot be reviewed (as happened to the lions last year http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap10...hwartz-regrets-challenge-of-houston-texans-td )

    I think this SHOULD have been a TD, just like Megatron's earlier that day....but by rule, it is not. Dumb rule. Dumber the fact that they review the scoring play and still don't get it right.

    From Rule 15, Section 9, Article 1, Note 1 -- "A team may challenge any reviewable play (see Article 4 below) except when the on-field ruling is a score for either team, an interception, a fumble or backward pass that is recovered by an opponent or goes out of bounds through an opponent’s end zone, or a muffed scrimmage kick recovered by the kicking team. A team is also prohibited from challenging any ruling after the two-minute warning of each half, and throughout any overtime period."

    I think some folks are confusing what happened with a fumble.

    They don't realize it was an incomplete pass.

    I don't think the call was incorrect. Cruz wasn't going to the ground in the process of making the catch. He came down with the ball and Allen then started to tackle him and that is what forced him to the ground. Before he hit the turf, he stretched the ball over the line for the TD. It's a stupid rule and open to too much interpretation, but I think it was the correct call.

    The error was not reviewing the play. They are supposed to review every scoring play and the ball popping loose is more than enough to warrant a closer look.

    Great. That's your opinion lol lol. That's neat. I stated my opinion and i think im correct. Stating that they had one more penalty doesn't in in way show that they were called equally. If one team commits or gets away with some like they did and I mentioned some then they aren't equal. Lol. I'm positive we have some fans who don't really know how to observe what happened during a game.

    Also, how many touchdowns,(that's 6 points) were called incorrectly for the Giants?
