Gates recovery in the end-zone

bigblue1124 : 9/15/2020 10:51 am
I was listening to Sirius this morning with Charlie Weis and I believe this is the play he was referring too? And could not understand how the Giants did not challenge the play.

It was after the muffed punt when we were at the goal line when DJ was hit from behind and Gates recovered the ball in the endzone. When it happen I thought it was a fumble not an incomplete pass but play continued and we settled for a field goal and figured I was wrong. After listen to him this morning and watching limited highlights it looks to be the case. I do not have slow motion capability but it would seem to be play worth at least calling for a review?

Weis was not calling out Judge for not challenging rather the people upstairs for not advising him to challenge, curious of what everyone else thinks of that play?

I thought it was a fumble too

Not sure if they would have given a td on the advance or if he recovered in the endzone, but I sure thought it was a fumble.
It would have been a Giants recovery but not a TD.

They blew the play dead, so on a reversal upon review it would have been a clear Giants recovery, ball placed at the spot of recovery, not advanced.

The only way it would have been a Giants TD would have been had they let them play through, live, and then if Pittsburgh challenged the call would have stood as called, TD Giants.
They blew the whistle before the recovery

It's a good thing Gates recovered it and saved a turnover.
i don't blame Judge

for not challenging that. It was a close play, and a difference of 2 yards. You only have 1 challenge left in the game and it's the first quarter.
They didn't want to hurt Dime's psyche
