NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WIBW) - The Kansas City Chiefs final attempt to force overtime on a field-goal came short after the Titans' Joshua Kalu blocked the field goal. Online commentary from fans asserted that Kalu was offsides before the snap of the ball.
“I felt like I jumped it perfectly,” Kalu told the Tennessean, “and even then I was just like, ‘Please don’t let me miss.’ And I’m looking at the ball and I hit it with my left hand, and I guess the rest is history.”
The NFL Officials responded to the potential controversy. Al Riveron, the NFL's senior vice president of officiating, said in a video that Kalu was lined up legally before the snap. Riveron went on to say that Kalu moved at the same time that the ball was snapped. Therefore, it was a legal jump off the line and a clean block.
