Washington Redskins Take Controversial Fumble Recovery Back 75 Yards

Jake SilverSocial Media StaffSeptember 9, 2013

With the Philadelphia Eagles marching at will on the Washington Redskins during the opening drive of the season's first Monday Night Football matchup, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick threw what initially looked like an incomplete pass to LeSean McCoy, which was batted down by Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan.

Washington cornerback Deangelo Hall picked up the ball and returned it 75 yards into the Eagles end zone. A referee ran the length of the field with him, eventually signaling for a touchdown. Upon official review the call was upheld.

What do you say? Was this a lateral pass?
