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:
The ref right in front of the play blew this dead and said Amari Cooper stepped out of bounds. This isn’t even close and should be a TD for the Browns . Horrible pic.twitter.com/xlVQrtNEq8— CFBBlueprint (@CFBBluePrint) September 24, 2023
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.
