3rd Quarter - M.Prater 45 yd. Field Goal
 
I don't think the FG was good. They showed a replay of it after the commercial break and to me it was wide.

The announcers said that it can't be reviewed or challenged. If all TD's are reviewed, then all FG's should also be reviewed. FG's are scoring plays after all.

The FG gave Denver a 3 score lead and they kept momentum as a result. Bah!

Rant done.

He missed it. I saw it to.

Among other bad calls.
Honestly I think they spotted the broncos about seven points including this field goal

can't be reviewed because the ball was higher than the post.... looked out, but guess we have to trust the linejudge looking straight up the post.

Uprights extend infinitely upwards, if any point of the ball is beyond the post it is to be considered missed.

If the upright was higher, the ball would have hit it. I'd have to see another replay to see if any point of the ball when wide of the post.

It doesn't make sense that FG's aren't automatically reviewed like TD's.

I'm pretty sure the ball has to be inside the post to be good. So if it goes right over it and hits the imaginary post it would be no good. I think I heard one of the announcers saying that.

It was definitely in line with the post which would have made it no good.
Guarantee a neutral party like Adam corolla will rant about it

They could easily solve with with a laser on the outside of the goal post.

Just a fraction of the ball has to be over the OUTSIDE of the goal post. That's the rule. I think it was wide.
