Redskins WR Santana Moss ejected at halftime for arguing a questionable call
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Veteran 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 Sunday.
Moss seemed to nudge a member of Jeff Triplette's crew after the referee ruled that Robert Griffin III lost possession of the ball diving into the corner of the end zone on a scramble from the 8-yard line that would have given the Redskins a 17-7 halftime lead.
The play - like all scores - was reviewed and Triplette said Griffin fumbled out of the end zone and the play was a touchback. The Redskins screamed at the officials after the call. Washington led 10-7 at the half.
The initial replay seemed to show that Griffin, who replaced Colt McCoy late in the first quarter, had outraced Jason Pierre-Paul to the pylon and scored.
NFL officiating chief Dean Blandino tweeted: ''In (hash)WASvsNYG RG3 clearly lost control of the ball before GL. It's a fumble. To regain possession he has to hold onto it when he lands.''
