Close-call on a potential walk-off safety is the Call of the Week

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson retreated all the way to the goal line, and by all appearances, this would have been a walk-off safety in overtime. But referee John Hussey and down judge Sarah Thomas piece together the end of the play, and it is our Call of the Week.

  1. Great Job taking their time and making sure they get it right. You can see that he was getting ready to call the safety but Sarah gets on the O2O and calls it back. Beautiful job on the crew.
