There was a game a few years back, Texans @ Colts, where our punt returner bobbled the ball, got tackled, and the Colts recovered. The refs ruled it as interference on the part of the Colts and gave us the ball +15 yds, the reasoning being that the returner has until the ball hits the ground to secure it. The exact same thing happened in the game last night, but the Broncos got to keep the ball.
My question is, did the rules change, or do I not remember that Texans vs Colts game right? Does anybody else remember that game?
I don't know, but Chris Collingsworth said it best last night, "the NFL rule book is like the IRS code. Nobody knows what's all in it."
