It's funny because this isn't even the most outrageous call they've benefited from this year. That overturned TD vs the Jets was really something else.

If anything, Dez has a better argument for his play being a catch more so than James does.

How about breaking the plane going out of bounds? You don’t have to land in bounds. Countless times guys have stretched over GL from OOB or had ball slapped away

It doesn’t happen often, but the Patriots occasionally do get screwed over by a controversial call.

One I can remember was a 2013 game v the Panthers, where a late Panthers interception in the EZ that sealed the game was upheld after the refs initially threw a flag for DPI and then picked it up...and it was DPI.

Listen, I believe the NFL uses its officiating power to keep games close, but the best teams get the calls. And the Patriots are one of the best teams.

Maybe.

But you have to admit...it's utterly absurd that a guy can catch a ball, be on his knees with possession, twist his body and reach out across the goal line with possession, and then after crossing the line with possession have the TD taken away. I just cannot understand that.
