The NFL's vice president of officiating, Dean Blandino, tweeted Tuesday that Baltimore Ravens cornerback Anthony Levine wasn't lined up in the neutral zone before the Cleveland Browns attempted a field goal that was blocked by the Ravens and returned for a game-winning touchdown on Monday Night Football.
The Browns lined up for a 51-yard field goal that would have won the team the game, but the attempt was blocked, and Will Hill scooped up the loose ball, racing into the end zone behind a convoy of blockers as time expired.
The NFL shared the amazing finish:
Replays after the game appeared to show that Levine was lined up in the neutral zone. This tweet from SB Nation showed that Levine was clearly across the black line used to indicate the line of scrimmage:
As Blandino noted, however, that line was not precisely placed.
The loss dropped the Browns to 2-9 on the season and continued another year of disappointment. The win for the Ravens, however, was a memorable moment in a forgettable season, as the 4-7 team has already lost quarterback Joe Flacco, running back Justin Forsett and wide receiver Steve Smith, Sr. for the season.
