Catch or no catch? Browns TE David Njokus touchdown vs. Ravens arouses debate – Boston Herald

It’s a question as old as football itself: catch or no catch?

Late in the third quarter of Sunday’s game in Baltimore, Cleveland Brown’s tight-end David Njoku caught a 20-yard touchdown pass to cut the Ravens’ lead to 13-10. After Njoku slipped to the ground to rock the ball before crossing the goal line, the referee signaled at the near pylon touchdown on the court.

After further examination, the referees decided that Njoku made the catch, but it looked as if the ball could have hit the ground.

The official NFL Officiating Twitter account agreed with the officials’ decision, stating that “there was no clear and obvious visual evidence to overturn the call on the court.” On the “Sunday Night Football” broadcast, rule analyst Terry McAulay also agreed with the decision to maintain the catch.

That did not stop the debate online, with some fans even sharing close-ups of the moment the ball could have been in contact with the M&T Bank Stadium turf.
