Washington QB Alex Smith Is Getting Called A Cheater By Steelers Fans For Running Off The Field With The Ball Before Field Goal Attempt


Washington QB Alex Smith is being accused of deliberately cheating to give his team more time to kick a field goal before the half.

Right before halftime of the Washington-Steelers game, refs were forced to stop the clock after Smith ran off the ball which gave Washington time to set up a field goal with no timeouts.

Former NFL referee Terry McCaulay noted that refs made a mistake by stopping the clock to change balls after Smith ran off with the game ball.


Steelers fans were angry with Smith and called him a cheater over the play.
