Julio Jones Has Amazing TD Catch Overturned Due To Bizarre NFL Heel Rule And Titans Fans Were Irate

Julio Jones appeared to get screwed by the NFL rulebook and their bizarre rules.

Before the half, Jones appeared to make an amazing TD catch in the back of the endzone.

The refs took a look at the replay and determined it wasn’t a catch because Jones’ heel landed out of bounds even though both his toes were inbounds during the catch.

Here’s Gene Steratore’s explanation of why Jones was out of bounds on this play and why it’s not the same as “toe-tap” TDs.

Titans fans were not happy with the ruling and argued that Jones’ heel was indeed inbounds.
