We’re being flooded by e-mails regarding the question of whether the infamous “tuck rule” came into play on the final play of the wild-card game between the Packers and the Cardinals.
But before we start digging up video of the 2001 division-round game between the Raiders and Patriots and comparing it to the positioning of Aaron Rodgers’ right arm when the ball was knocked out of his hand, here’s an important point we all need to keep in mind.
It doesn’t matter.
Since the ball never touched the ground, it was either a fumble or an interception by Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby.
Either way, it would have been nice if Joe Buck had mentioned it. But maybe he was just glad the game was over.
After all, the U.S. Marshals were waiting.
