Replay shows just how bad ref blew Amari Cooper’s would-be TD

A big play screwed up by the refs takes points off the board

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Cleveland Browns Scott Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

Just a horrible call by the refs as Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson hits WR Amari Cooper for what would have been a huge gain and possible touchdown. Instead, refs say he stepped out of bounds.

The replay shows otherwise:

Very clearly, Cooper was in bounds by a decent amount. Obviously, defenders may have done something different if they hadn’t heard the whistle but, if Cooper scores, this takes four points off the board after Dustin Hopkins hit a 52-yard field goal.
