Almost immediately after Rashard Mendenhall scored his decisive two-yard touchdown run against the Ravens, we started hearing from folks who thought Steelers tight end David Johnson should have been flagged for a false start on the play.
But the NFL disagrees.
Adam Schefter is reporting that the Ravens sent the play to the NFL for review, and the NFL backed referee Jeff Triplette and his crew. The league says that although Johnson appeared to flinch, that flinch came just as the ball was being snapped. So no false start.
Not that it would have been much consolation to the Ravens anyway.
