Officials might have missed Justin Tucker’s game-winning field goal

Must read

Officials might have missed a penalty prior to Justin Tucker’s record-setting 43-yard field goal in the waning seconds of the Ravens’ 30-27 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, according to the NFL.

From the New York Post:

“We’ll examine the tape, and we’re watching closely what was going on,” said an NFL spokesperson Monday. “And we’ll certainly take any action we feel is appropriate with respect to it.”

In the final seconds of a game that was decided by one point, Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes lofted a 50-yard pass to Tyreek Hill to take the Chiefs within a score. The touchdown tied the game and a two-point conversion attempt would have given Kansas City a 26-24 lead. Instead, Tucker drilled the game-winning kick with only seconds remaining.

After the game, several Chiefs players vented their frustrations at officials for a mis-call that turned the final few minutes of the game into one that they do not expect to ever see again.

‘It’s human nature. We’re athletes, and our emotions get the best of us,’ said Mahomes. “As long as we all get back on the same page and control our emotions, then we can get back to talking about the positive things that we want to do, and that’s try to win a championship for our city.”
