Phil-simms
Phil Simms and Jim Nantz both pointed out last night about how referees in the Balitmore Ravens-Denver Broncos playoff game allowed Ravens kicker Justin Tucker to take a practice kick on the field during the break in between the first and second overtime sessions Saturday night.Players, from both Ravens and Broncos, waited for the game to resume after the first 15 minutes of the first overtime session had ended. Tucker was seen on the field and (at least one time) took a warm-up kick. In Sports Authority Field at Mile High, most Broncos fans protested the warm-up kick. Broncos player Champ Bailey, was seen questioning the fairness of the warm-up kick.When the second session resumed, Tucker made the game-winning field goal.It's being reported that although the actions of Tucker (during warm up kicks during an actual game) doesn't come with offense penalty, it's also not allowed by the NFL.Basically, Tucker won't get in trouble for kicking the practice field, but in reality he should have NEVER made the warm-up kick in the first place.Your browser does not support iframes.
