This post is dedicated to the comeback of the Detroit Lions as well as the collapse by the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys dominated the first 2 1/2 quarters before Tony Romo decided to throw 2 TDs to the other team. Here are the highlights. MEGATRON!

There were two interesting plays involving fumbles, or what appeared to be fumbles, from yesterdays games. The first is the head-scratcher from the Eagles Ronnie Brown. After being stuffed at the goal line, Brown turns around and for some reason, appears to attempt a backward pass. It was ruled a fumble, of course, but Brown tries to explain that he was throwing a pass…backwards, which would be a fumble anyway. Oh that wacky 1-3 “Dream Team.”

Enjoy.

The second fumble, wasn’t ruled a fumble at all, because of the crazy interpretation of the NFL rule that says a player is considered down if they “give themselves up” and go to the ground. What is interesting is, the New York Giants, Victor Cruz, didn’t give himself up and go to the ground. He inexplicably, stumbled and fell to the ground. Then got up, without being touched, and dropped the ball. FUMBLE. Arizona Ball.

See for yourself.
