The New York Jets are scratching their heads right now.
Trailing the New England Patriots 24-14 in the fourth quarter, Jets quarterback Josh McCown hit Austin Seferian-Jenkins for what appeared to be a touchdown.
But the officials gathered to review the play, and they determined the Jets tight end lost control of the ball and fumbled it out of the end zone, giving the Patriots the ball on a touchback.
And everyone was left baffled by the call, as Seferian-Jenkins appeared to have possession of the ball when he landed out of bounds.
We really don’t know how to describe the rationale behind the call, but we’re the Patriots will take it without question.
