Redskins go crazy after RG3 fumbles, but refs made correct call

BY James Parziale • December 14, 2014

An overturned Robert Griffin III touchdown run that closed out the first half against the Giants led to some controversy as the clock expired.

Griffin III appeared to score on a touchdown run that would have given the Redskins a 10-point lead going into halftime:

Originally ruled a touchdown, referee Jeff Triplette explained that RG3 was losing the ball before he crossed the goal line and never re-established possession. That made the play a fumble. FOX NFL rules analyst Mike Pereira explain this in more detail in the video above.

After the call was overturned, Washington wide receiver Santana Moss was ejected for arguing a questionable call on the final play of the first half that cost the Redskins a touchdown on Sunday.

Moss seemed to nudge a member of Jeff Triplette's crew. The Redskins screamed and yelled at the officials after the call. Washington led 10-7 at the half.
