    Does anyone know why buffalo's last play of the first half wasn't ruled a fumble? The receiver fumbled after the reception and I thought Ellis Hobbs recovered and returned it when time ran out.

    Was it ruled incomplete?
    Down by contact?

    FYI-
    according to Mike Reiss in today's Globe,the Elias Sports Bureau is going to review the fumble at the end of the first half,as it was not accounted for by the official stats person from Buffalo.

    So,there's a decent chance the Pats could get credit for another turnover.

    I heard it was not accounted for because the Refs did not spot the ball afterward so the scorer could not count it. It will be reviewed and then Hobbs will get credit for the fumble.

    I watched the game at someone else's house last sunday and forgot to TIVO it, thought I saw that happen.. but could not find any thread referencing it or anything in the game book. Oh well another turnover in our favor is a good thing.

    I am glad it was reviewed...I wonder how closely they review a game..WHen I look at a game, I have seen at times tackles made by a player credied to another...Wonder if others notice that?? Not rare..but I have seen that..
    Another turnover..is always GREAT!!
