Pereira: "Philly Special" Super Bowl TD should've been called penalty

Share

But the trick play, which the Eagles ran to perfection for a touchdown on fourth-and-goal in the first half of Super Bowl LII, shouldn't have counted in the first place. "And even a little bit beyond two".

Sure, it's harder to recognize some of the lesser well known NFL players, especially when you take into account they were a football helmet when they are on TV the most, but Clement was a Super Bowl hero!

"I know the league came out and said that it's a judgment call, which it is", Pereira told Clark Judge of Talk of Fame. "And it really should've been called". By rule, seven players have to be lined up on the line of scrimmage at the time of the snap, and pictures seemed to show only six Eagles at the line.

Former Patriots linebacker and current NESN insider Matt Chatham also initially pointed out that the play should have been ruled dead due to an illegal formation during the game earlier this month.

While the game itself could have played out differently, the missed call ultimately decided turned out to be a close game for the remaining two quarters as Philadelphia held on to win 41-33 and capture its first Super Bowl victory in franchise history.

The Eagles appeared to have only six men on the line of scrimmage as Jeffery was about two yards out of position when the ball was snapped directly to running back Corey Clement.

Jeffery likely received clearance from the official nearby him and signaled with him to indicate he was on the line of scrimmage for the play, which is probably why no penalty was called.

If Clement is looking for more tattoo ideas, a portrait of the referee who upheld his controversial touchdown catch against the Patriots would be epic.

"I think when you look at a struggle in your life, just know that that's just an opportunity for your character to grow", he said, according to ABC News.
