Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill Was WAY Offside on 75-Yard TD Reception (PIC + VIDEO)
This half-a-foot probably wasn’t the difference between Tyreek Hill being covered or wide open downfield during his 75-yard touchdown reception, but it’s still a pretty big no-call, nonetheless.

Like I said earlier, that half-a-foot wouldn’t have helped Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore in coverage, but it still could have been called back, negating the 75-yard score and preventing the Chiefs from taking their first score of the game.
Unfortunately, it’s too late to do anything about this. The Chiefs were the better team and won the game, 42-27, while the Patriots start the season 0-1 and will probably go on to win the Super Bowl.
