Super Bowl’s Controversial Ending Will Be Greatly Scrutinized in Days to Come (Video)


Super Bowl XLVII had a little bit of everything.

But the part of the game that will be most talked about — other than the half-hour power outage, of course — is the controversial ending. On fourth-and-goal from inside the Ravens’ 5-yard line with less than two minutes to play, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick tossed a fade to Michael Crabtree in the end zone. Crabtree jostled with cornerback Jimmy Smith, and the pass fell incomplete, allowing the Ravens to run down the clock and clinch a 34-31 win.

Many argued that Smith held Crabtree on the play, but former Patriots linebacker Matt Chatham told NESN Daily that the previous play — a borderline helmet-to-helmet hit on the Niners’ wideout — may have been an even more significant non-call.

Check out Chatham’s take on the ending and the game overall in the video above.
