VIDEO: Greg Jennings Fumbles, According To Everyone But Bill Leavy

With the New York Giants leading the Green Bay Packers 10-3, the Giants forced Greg Jennings to fumble the ball and recovered it. It was initially called a fumble on the field, until Bill Leavy overruled his crew and said that Jennings was down by contact. Tom Coughlin was obviously annoyed and made what was probably an excellent decision to throw his challenge flat. Incredibly, Leavy took a very long time to review the play and declared that the ruling on the field stood as called.

How could this have happened? Check out the video.

The ball is pretty clearly loose before Jennings' backside is on the ground. This certainly constitutes indisputable video evidence. It's pretty tough to figure out what Leavy was thinking on this one. The Packers would go on to score a touchdown and tie the score at 10-10 after being gifted possession of the ball.
