@8Bit - Sure thing. The red team had the ball but the green team intercepted it. That means they gained control of the ball.

So in the next play, one of the green players caught the ball. The problem is, when he caught it, he threw it on the ground. (As his way of celebrating the catch.)

According to American Football rules, however, that`s still considered a live ball. One of the red players picks it up and runs it to the goal to score.

...all because that green player that caught the ball celebrated his catch too early.

Ironic that number 8 on the green team made the interception, then number 8 on the red team picked up the fumble and took it in for a win.

I didn`t hear a whistle. Either way, the ref would have run to the ball waving their hands signaling the end of the play.

To be sure, it was a fumble. No matter what. The ONLY consideration that can change the result of the play as we see it on the video is *if* there was a whistle, in which case, Crakr`s point is correct (the point is valid either way, but, if no whistle sounded, and that`s in question, Crakr`s point`s not applicable here, but, if one had sounded, he`s correct).

As for Scuzoid`s mystery spiking rule, I`m sorry good sir, but that doesn`t count on a live ball. In your link, the Denver guy was down by contact upon making the interception. That play ended with the men on the ground. The spike was a dead ball penalty after the play that had nothing to do with a live ball.

We can get into rules governing a penalty for purposefully "fumbling" or "accidentally" kicking the ball forward, but that`s not applicable here, either, with the change of possession.

anyone who claims to hear a whistle needs to get their ears checked

there is the buzzer, then a high pitched scream from near the camera man, it is not a whistle, listen to the end whistle to tell the diference

I hear a whistle, but it sounds more like someone in the crowd. Hard to tell with all the noise.

CrakrJak-"MeGrendel: Listen closely"

Actually, I didn`t listen at all. Go the sound muted on my puter.

If a ref whistled, they have a point. BUT, if only one did, and other`s did not, you have mass confusion.

But yeah, there were so many inconsistencies with that play is amazing it took three whole weeks to get THESE refs off of the NFL gridiron. No flag on the delay, whistle blown, offensive player removing his helmet, THEN the ball is picked up and a touchdown is allowed? Haha, thank god Obama said something, the current season was becoming unbettable.

Yep, shouldn`t count. CrakrJak is correct. Ref blew the whistle. Dead ball. Period. Whether or not defense can spike or not is irrelevant.

MeGrendel: Listen closely, after the buzzer sounds you can hear the refs whistle. Once a ref whistles the play is dead, period.

HalfPintRoo-"I know nothing about football, what happened?"

After he caught the ball (had control of it), it could only be dead if he was downed or run/thrown out of bounds. By dropping the ball, it was technically a fumble (still live) and the other team could field it a run it into for a touchdown.

Oops.

Scuzoid, he was past the line of scrimmage so it was not a spike. Nice try, but you don`t watch sports.

skypirate: But the referee blew his whistle as well. After a ref blows his whistle the play is dead. The ball was dead, end of play, no time left on the clock, game over.

Nah skypirate. It`s a delay of game.

I mean, come on sports fans, this JUST happened the Monday before last when Peyton Manning was intercepted at San Diego, then proceeded to absolutely destroy the Chargers.

even if the buzzer sounds the game ends only after the play is over. so, the kid intercepted it, heard buzzer threw it down (note he didnt take a knee), thats considered a fumble and still a live ball. other team picked up and scored ending the play and the game. in short, always make sure the ref blows a whistle before you let go of the ball.

That`s not a live ball. It`s called delay of game for spiking the ball in the field of play. There should`ve been a flag, a penalty, and a first and ~15 with 1 second left on the clock for the green team.
