NFL  > Oakland Raiders  > Good officiating got the tuck rule correct.
April 20, 2009, 10:19 PM
Like it or not, the refs got the call correct and the Raiders have not been the same team since.

I just watched the replay on ESPN and Belicheck is correct, the refs ruled the same way against the Patriots earlier in the season against the Jets. Vinny was in the process of tucking the ball in when he was hit and the ball came out and the Patriots recovered. The refs ruled he was tucking the ball in just like Brady was and they gave the ball back to the offense just the way the rule called for.

The beauty of instant replay was evident in that game because it allowed the refs to look at things in slow motion and make the right call.
