Video Shows Steelers FG Block At End Of Game Should Have Counted Due To Chargers Illegal Snap Infraction
The refs had a long night during yesterday’s Steelers-Chargers Sunday Night Football game.
Not only did the officials miss a blatant false start penalty that resulted in a Chargers TD.
But they also missed an illegal block in the back on a punt return TD.
On the final play of the game, the Steelers were called for three consecutive offside penalties during the Chargers field goal try to win the game. The Steelers were apparently drawn offsides by Chargers long snapper Mike Windt illegally twitching and moving the ball pre-snap during the play in which they blocked the field goal.
The field goal block should have counted due to the illegal snap infraction and the game should have to overtime instead of the Chargers being granted the game-winning field goal
Browns linebacker Joe Schobert chimed in on Twitter and confirmed that Windt was notorious for never getting called for illegal snap infractions despite always twitching presnap.
