Here we go again.
Days after the New England Patriots won a controversial game against the Dallas Cowboys at Gillette Stadium — a Patriots cheating conspiracy surfaced on YouTube that is trying desperately to show the Cowboys were cheated.
The video was promoted by Dallas radio host R.J. Choppy and it comes from the 2nd quarter where officials moved the first-down marker from the Patriots’ 5-yard-line to the 4 in between first and second down, seemingly adding a yard to the Cowboys’ yards to gain.
There was no conspiracy to this, as Yahoo Sports pointed out the chain gang just screwed up where the spot was supposed to be to begin with, and decided to fix after Dallas’ 1st-down play.
“There was a mistake, but it seems to have come on the spot of the ball. Here’s the official play-by-play:
2-8-DAL 49 (4:33) D.Prescott pass deep middle to M.Gallup to NE 29 for 22 yards (D.Harmon) [D.Wise]. P9
PENALTY on NE-D.Wise, Roughing the Passer, 15 yards, enforced at NE 29. X10
1-10-NE 14 (4:03) E.Elliott right guard to NE 11 for 3 yards (D.Hightower, J.Collins).
Except the ball wasn’t spotted at the 14-yard line for first down. It was at the 15, for whatever reason.”
