Flacco is under pressure, throwing off his back foot. He places the ball in the perfect spot for Boldin, who was able to hold on. Maybe. Replays showed the ball hitting ground and possibly moving, but a review of the play confirmed the touchdown called on the field.
ESPN's referee expert disputed the call on the air, as did Fox's Mike Pereira via Twitter.
I agree with you and with Gerald Austin. I think it should have been overturned. He did not maintain control. The hand came off the ball.— Mike Pereira (@MikePereira) September 11, 2012
Fortunately for the Ravens, their opinion doesn't matter right now.
