The NFL admitted the San Diego Chargers should have been penalized for an illegal formation in Sunday night’s overtime win against the Kansas City Chiefs.

If the call had been made, the Chiefs would have been able to attempt a 36-yard field goal after kicker Ryan Succop missed a 41-yard field goal. The missed field goal sent the 24-24 game into overtime, where the Chargers won it 27-24 and clinched a playoff spot.

Had the Chiefs won the game, the Pittsburgh Steelers would have taken the final playoff spot instead.

I'm an Eagles fan and the Cowboys also got called for a delay of game penalty in the 4th quarter.  Ultimately, the blown penalty for a faulty play clock didn't matter because the Cowboys got a touchdown during the drive.


I wonder if the league will admit this mistake.

1  I'm a Steller fan this is not the first time that the Steelers have been keept out of the playoffs because of bad or missed call or teams laying down not to have to play them in a playoff game

.

2  Before you judge me as a sore loser just remenber this could happen to your tem.


 3 The leauge change the schedule becuse of the fact to many tems were getting shorted by tems not playing there starters at theend of season.


 4 I hope that Kansas City don"t ever need a Steeler win to make the playoffs.

 5 his is for every football fan I would like to see a rule that makes tems play to win by not putting all ther key players on in active roles

Thanks all
