Falcons Fans Accuse Refs Of Cheating For The Bucs After Replay Shows Official Moving The Ball To Give Tampa Bay A First Down During Spot

There was a bit of controversy at the end of the Bucs-Falcons game.

Late in the fourth quarter while up four points with about a minute left to go in the game, the Bucs ran the ball with Leonard Fournette on third down but appeared to be short for a first down.

A replay showed the ref curiously moving the ball forward for whatever reason after the initial spot.

Despite the generous spot the crew measured the ball and still called it a first down even though it looked like the Bucs were clearly short.

Falcons fans were irate and accused the refs of cheating.
