The Dallas Cowboys looked like they had clearly intercepted Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles in the end zone. Though, he wouldn’t have been to blame for the pick. Foles through the ball to an open Jason Avant in the end zone. Foles can be faulted for throwing the ball short, but Avant dropped and went into a slide to try to catch it.

It hits him in the hands and as he tries to hang on to it, it pops out and flies into the air. Cowboys safety J.J. Wilcox hurdles Avant to catch the ball and secure the interception. The play was reviewed and overturned making it an incomplete pass because they say the ball hit the ground.

I don’t know about you but it certainly looks like an interception to me. It doesn’t appear to hit the ground at all.

    I agree that was a cheat call right there. Ball never touched the ground and no angle they showed had enough evidence to overturn it.
