The NFL has admitted that officials incorrectly awarded Carolina's DeAngelo Williams with a 30-yard touchdown yesterday. The league says the ball should have been ruled dead at the 17 yard line due to an indavertent whistle.
This is how referee Carl Cheffers explained it postgame.
"The line judge blew his whistle. We had a lot of discussion about it. We just felt when the whistle blew, that the player would have already scored a touchdown. So, we tried to piece together if we had to spot -- by rule, we would have to put him down when the whistle blew, and we tried to decide where that spot would be, and we felt that spot would be in the end zone."
The Redskins lost 21-13, so its anybody's guess how a correct call would have impacted the game.
My question is, do we adjust fantasy football scoring?
