    Controversial call at goal line with Ben.

    It was the right call by the way the rules are written. I don't think anybody but the refs knew about that rule but it's true. Ben did cough it up on the half yard line but if the officials can't definitively see who recovered it goes back to the offense.

    I think Legursky had in on the ground--but it doesn't matter now

    I looked initially that there were 2 Dolphins players that dove for it but Legursky then dove in and after that nobody could tell. I'll be honest I didn't know about that mandatory 2nd view needed to make the call to overturn a call like that.

    I can't fault Ben for trying to win the game..........He almost got in.........I honestly can't see who recovered so I think the officials made the right call and I'm not being a homer.......We won and that is all that matters.....

    People got to remember that one play doesn't lose a game....The Dolphins got two gifts early in the game and only could score field goals....That is why they lost.......

    This rule will be discussed at length this week. The call was correct, you can't dispute that. However the rule honestly does needs to be clarified and possibly amended in some fashion. You should not be determining possession with review, only if it was a fumble or not.

    Miami had plenty of chances to win the game by putting the ball in the end zone instead of settling for 3 time and time again and failed to do so...That;s what lost this game for them not the play at the end...Huge huge win in the AFC for the Steelers especially seeing that the Ravens unfortunately came back and beat worthless ****ing Buffalo in OT just now...

    We knew we couldn't count on Buffalo so no harm no foul...sure would have been fun to have the hapless bills beat the ratbirds though---that I would have enjoyed all week!

    They made correct call. Whistles wer going for touchdown ,that was the signal. They had no reason to bother sort through the pile to see who had recovered the fumble...
