    I just dont understand. It was called an interception returned for a touchdown but later turned to a fumble.

    I guess it's all about if his arm was ruled going forward or not?

    lol it didn't even hit the ground so it kind of voids that. I've noticed nfl refs this year have been wildly inconsistent with their penalties. and yes I believe thats a interception and it isnt even close

    lol wouldnt that be the tuck rule as well though....if that ball hits the ground they would have called it incomplete xD... Its honestly the dumbest **** in the world. Its a clear as day pick 6.

    If I was a referee (and I'm not) I'd call that a pick 6 until the game ended and some offiating elitist financier insider edited my ruling for the 'official' call.

    Hard to tell from that 56k quality video but it looks like the empty hand thing. Ball goes loose before the arm moves so it's a fumble. It's moot regardless.

    The refs on the field said it was because his hand was empty when his arm went forward.

    Sans the empty hand thing this what I was shooting for as well. Doesn't need to hit ground to be a fumble.

    Is that his confusion? The ground part?

    his arm is going forward... the ball is still there... I will find better quality... its literally tuck rule... it is moot but its just weird how they can call that a fumble in real time.

    It looked to me like the ball was going up not with his hand. Why does it matter btw

    Pretty clear the ball was out of his hand before his arm went forward so fumble seems like the correct call.
