Replacement Side Judge Misses Clear Steven Jackson Touchdown (w/ evidence)

Cold, Hard Football Facts for Sep 17, 2012

On Sunday Jeff Fisher's St. Louis Rams crashed the RG3 party with a 31-28 victory. The team trailed as much as 21-6 in the second quarter but fought through to prevail in their first home-opening win since 2006.

While much of the talk surrounding the outcome is righfully placed on Joshua Morgan's ridiculous 15-yd penalty, the error of the side judge seems forgotten.

Not any more.

On the Rams' 4th possession of the game, which spanned 15 plays and seven minutes, Steven Jackson scored a touchdown that wasn't ruled a touchdown. 

Jackson was then penalized 15 yards for spiking the football because he thought (no, he knew) he scored a touchdown. And he did.

See the photographic evidence.

I haven't the foggiest idea what the side judge was looking at.

This was one of many blown calls by the crew that we hope to soon forget. 

Hey, NFL, if you're reading: please remedy this situation.
