Bouncing fumble near sideline is tight call



Week 3: Redskins at Cowboys

1st quarter | 2:09 remaining | video. It was like threading a needle, but the Redskins very carefully recovered a Cowboys fumble near the sideline. Good collaborative call from line judge Adrian Hill (#29) and field judge Craig Wrolstad on the initial call. It wasn’t until the fourth replay angle that we could see that the Redskins players were not out of bounds when touching the ball.
