There’s no explanation about why perennial screw-up Ed Hochuli is allowed to call this game. But he’s already doing everything in his power to help the Patriots along.
That lateral -pass was close. But the video evidence was not 100% certain, so the call has to stand. Guest ref-commentator Mike Carey agreed. Ed Hochuli, however, took the game into his own hands and gacve the pats the ball, deep in Denver territory, which was essentially giving them a free touchdown.
How much did Robert Kraft pay him for that one?
