dusvar133: Would New York like to explain how on earth this is a fumble … CBS NFL Football:… https://t.co/Ner0Y27B9F https://t.co/9bgeAhHeA5

New York Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins believed he scored a touchdown during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game versus the New England Patriots at MetLife Stadium. 

The officials disagreed following a review of the play, and the reversal of the call left many baffled and angry. 

With 8:31 remaining in the contest and the Patriots ahead 24-14, Seferian-Jenkins appeared to get to the pylon with possession of the football. 

After review, however, it was ruled the 25-year-old juggled the ball and failed to secure full possession before going out of play, resulting in a touchback. 

Jets fans on Twitter expressed their rage about the decision, while others with no rooting interest were left wondering what they witnessed:

That was a terrible call. Tough enough to beat #Patriots down 2 scores in the 4th, but as though #Jets were down 3. Have to score 3x to win.

1-15 @MIlIlIlIlIIlKE

*Ground can't cause fumble* *Ground can cause incompletion* When you're playing the @Patriots : *Ground can cause a fumble*

Mike Greenberg @Espngreeny

I have written and deleted quite a few tweets since that call. As any of them might get my account suspended. What a disgrace. #Jets

I never wanna hear the NFL is out to get the Patriots again after that Seferian-Jenkins ruling

trey wingo @wingoz

To recap: They just called a fumble on a play where The Jets TE never lost possession of the ball.

How can someone fumble out of endzone if the ball is in his hands? The call wiping out a TD for the Jets among the most bizarre I've seen

"Actually guys I'm pretty sure he fumbled out of the end zone. Trust me on this." https://t.co/hFx3ZVcOjG

Insane awful call in NY as they take a TD away from NYJ/ASJ as ball was moving while he crossed GL. ASJ NEVER lost possession tho. AWFUL.
