Why Julio Jones' TD catch was overturned for Tennessee Titans vs. Seattle Seahawks
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones followed up a poor Week 1 with a dominant first half against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, but it was a catch attempt late in the second quarter that he'll wish to have back.
Jones was initially ruled to have gotten both feet down inbounds in the back of the end zone on a third down play with 69 seconds left in the first half,
But after review, it was judged by the NFL's replay review that Jones' left heel landed out of bounds. The TD catch was overturned.
It was close, but was it indisputable?
That was the correct call, said former NFL official and current CBS analyst Gene Steratore on the game broadcast.
"I don't really have a problem with it either, and I'll tell you why," Steratore said. "You look for that slice of green (turf), and when you do look at this, it's difficult to see that slice of green (turf). It appears like Jones, the red of his heel looks like it's out. But I think he might need to go to green shoes instead of blue and red."
Jones had four catches for 102 yards in the first half, but that controversial overturn by replay will be the talking point.
