    Catch, three steps, dives and the ball pops out.

    I didn’t think as a cowboys fan my night could get worse:

    I was wrong.

    Dez hit immediately on 2nd step. Ertz hit after 3rd step.

    Both were catches, but they were different.

    Oh lord, here we go. Here's the difference. Dez jumped up to highpoint the ball and Ertz caught the ball while on his feet taking 3 steps and then executed a proper lunge/reach. Dez did not do the last part so the going to the ground rule applied. Just stop.

    Not only that touchdown but the touchdown before that both should have been overturned. And I base this on what I've seen the Dez catch no catch. The Pittsburgh TD Overturned this "Expletive" is insane.

    Dez took multiple steps and lunged forward. What the hell are you talking about

    After skying high to catch the ball and coming down to the ground with each step. He had possession, 2 feet but did not make the football move that would have undone the going to the ground rule. There was no lunge. He intended it but did not execute. Therefore, once the ball hit the ground and came loose, there was no catch. There are rules that govern this.

    You know I could respect it more if the league just admitted they screwed up the Dez call. They refuse to. How that was a catch and Dez's wasn't makes no sense.

    Are people not paying attention to Dez and Ertz' positioning when they grabbed the ball? How are people not seeing the difference that makes all the difference?

    I agree - it was the exact same scenario. Clear catch and then lunging to the goal line.

    Both were catches. We were on the wrong side of both calls. What an abortion of a season.

    He’s doing it again. Defending the bulls*** call made in GB. I mean, the NFL should hire this guy.

    LOL. Not sure how "we" got on the side of a game between the Pats and Eagles but they very clearly were not "the exact same scenario." Where did they each grab the ball in their respective catches? Think. Dez was in the air and Ertz was on the ground running.

    They say 3 steps and you're a runner, right? Stupid rule in any case
