Ben Roethlisberger Forward Pass Ruled Fumble By NFL Officials in Steelers-Giants Game (Animation)

Steelers fans can't be happy with the officiating in Pittsburgh's game against the Giants.

Ben Roethlisberger was charged with a fumble when Osi Umenyiora hit Big Ben's throwing arm, and though it looked like he unintentionally let go of the ball, his arm was moving forward. The call should have been ruled either a tuck rule or simply a forward pass, but even after it was challenged as a fumble, the play stood.

Unfortunately for Pittsburgh, the "fumble" was returned 70 yards for a touchdown by Giants linebacker Michael Boley. The questionable call came one drive after Ryan Clark was seemlingly incorrectly flagged for a personal foul for his hit on Victor Cruz in the end zone.

Watch the animation below to see the bizarre call by the refs.
