Oct 17, 2013; Phoenix, AZ, USA; Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane (20) against the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium.

NFL to review play where Seahawks player got hit by an out-of-uniform 49ers player on the sideline

During the NFC Championship game, there was a scene where Seattle Seahawks defensive back Jeremy Lane was knocked out-of-bounds on a play where he was trying to cover a punt. He went pretty far out-of-bounds and was trying to get back onto the field when someone in street clothes on the San Francisco 49ers sideline seemed to clothes line Lane.

It is hard to see exactly what happened because there is someone standing in front of the spot where it occurred. But it looked like he stuck out his right arm and knocked him to the ground judging by his movement after the play.

Interestingly enough, the NFL officiating office that reviews plays and calls from games use Xbox controllers to rewind and play footage.

Here is a GIF of the play if you missed it:
