Most reasonable New England Patriots fans believe the Philadelphia Eagles simply outplayed their team in Super Bowl LII.
Still, many point to Corey Clement’s controversial third-quarter touchdown catch as evidence the Pats, at least in some respect, got robbed. Many, including NBC Sports commentator Cris Collinsworth, believe Clement caught the ball, bobbled it, then stepped out of bounds before regaining possession.
The refs, of course, disagreed and ultimately gave the Eagles the TD. But surely the call was anything but easy for Gene Steratore and the NFL review office to make, right?
Wrong. Wednesday’s episode of “Inside the NFL” showed Steratore thought upholding Clement’s TD was a no-brainer.
Listen to audio from the review process below:

At the end of the day, that was a great “catch” by Clement and an even better throw by quarterback Nick Foles. Questionable call, for sure, but a great play nonetheless.
Sometimes you just have to tip your cap.
