On 4th-and-2 late in the fourth quarter, Tony Romo threw one up for Dez Bryant to get and of course he made an insane catch…or so we thought.
As Bryant came down with the ball and reached for the endzone, the ball hit the ground and moved causing Bryant to lose control of the ball. Take a look:
Now, here’s another look that is zoomed in:
The zoomed in look shows that the ball did in fact hit the ground and moved. So, the ground caused Bryant to lose possession of the ball before he made a football move. By rule, the refs correctly ruled that it wasn’t a catch.
This call, like the Lions pass interference call, will definitely be talked about for a while.
