Those poor referees.
With Tom Brady scrambling out toward the sideline—but not out of bounds, mind you—in the third quarter against the Buffalo Bills on Monday, Danny Amendola broke free. So the New England Patriots quarterback floated him the ball.
Before Amendola could make the catch, turn upfield and possibly score a touchdown, there was an inadvertent whistle.
The Pats got the ball where the catch was made, but since the whistle was blown during the flight of the ball, it really should’ve been a do-over.
Take a look for yourself:
Stephen Gostkowski went on to miss a 54-yard field goal.
