Patriots Wanted Ravens' Winning Field Goal Reviewed
The winning field goal that Ravens kicker Justin Tucker booted to clinch Sunday's 31-30 win left the Patriots with more than just disappointment.
The team also wanted the play reviewed to see if the ball had passed through the uprights.
Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork said the kick "looked very close" to him, and he was visibly agitated walking away from the game-ending play.
Wilfork said officials should have reviewed the play.
"They have to," he said. "In a game like this you have to. They ran off the field, so it is what it is. I'm not going to sit here and pick a fight with those guys. They have a job to do, we have a job to do."
Fox Sports analyst Mike Pereira, the former NFL head of officiating, said on Twitter the play would not be eligible for review "because you cannot determine when exactly the ball is directly over the pole."
