    I’ll just add that as “controversial” as it appears now, it would be 100% more controversial if they actually replayed the down and Cincinnati didn’t score the TD.

    The whistle comes while the ball is in the air above the end zone. Pretty damn close to being caught. I don't think players had time to stop because of the whistle. I think the defenders stopped because they knew it was a TD.

    You could be right. Looking back, there is a defender getting close to Burrow on the sidelines. You can't see where he ends up because the camera follows the ball on the pass and then the whistle blows.

    The ref was watching Burrows feet and not that the ball had been thrown causing the whistle to sound close to when the ball is caught.

    It wasn't an "inadvertent" whistle... It was just a whistle that shouldn't have been blown, period.

    But you're right, rules are rules... Just in this case theres really no winner.

    Whistle did not impact the play but should not happen. And rules should be followed if there are such rules in place.

    NFL basically said the call was correct and then removes the crew for the rest of the playoffs. Basically their way of saying they were wrong without coming out and saying it.

    The fact that Bogger is out of the playoffs is a HUGE win for the Titans ... HUGE.

    Cant pick and choose when to enforce the rules. Down should have been replayed. Burrow and Taylor also clowns for saying they didn't hear a whistle, burrow literally was bitching about it lol
