NFL Rules Against 49ers On QB Alex Smith Appeal
Alex Smith's 18-of-19 passing line Monday night will stand after the Elias Sports Bureau concluded a potential 20th pass attempt was indeed a run by Michael Crabtree, Cam Inman of Bayareanewsgroup reports.
The league's record book requires a minimum of 20 attempts to qualify for the highest completion percentage in a game.
Crabtree caught a backward pass from Smith to open the fourth quarter of the 49ers' 24-3 win at Arizona, and officials correctly ruled it a lateral. Also remaining unchanged is a first-quarter play in which pass interference was called on a Smith attempt targeted for Mario Manningham.
Smith's night, which also included passing for 232 yards and three touchdowns, earned him his first career NFC Offensive Player of the Week honor Wednesday.
