NFC Divisional Round 2014: New Orleans Saints get away with controversial fumble (GIF)

The New Orleans Saints have their hands full with the Seattle Seahawks, but they’re hanging in there with them in the NFC Divisional Round. Despite going down 16-0 for a majority of the game, the Siants are still wing bounces and breaks come their way and none were bigger than a non-fumble call that came late in the game that allowed them to keep the ball on a drive they eventually scored on.

The play drew some controversy as it appeared that the ball was very clearly fumbled. This was refuted by multiple officials on Twitter, who say the runner was contacted before he hit the ground, this making him down by contact which was the call on the play.

So there you have it, apparently.
