Ravens | Team to file report over Week 11 loss

Tue, 20 Nov 2007 08:39:36 -0800

ESPN.com reports Baltimore Ravens head coach Brian Billick said Monday, Nov. 19, that the team will file a report over the unusual circumstances surrounding the team's Week 11 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Although officials did get the call right when deeming Cleveland Browns PK Phil Dawson's game-tying, 51-yard field goal with no time left was good, it is how the officials went about making the decision that Billick is questioning. League rules dictate that a field goal is not reviewable by replay. However, after a lengthy discussion, the officials ruled the kick passed through the uprights and called the teams back onto the field. A Baltimore television station, however, filmed referee Pete Morelli and field judge Jim Saracino at the replay booth on the field but not under the hood. Morelli did have a headset on. League spokesman Greg Aiello, speaking for Mike Pereira, the NFL's vice president of officiating, told the Akron Beacon Journal that Morelli only talked to replay official Howard Slavin, who confirmed to him that a replay cannot be reviewed.

Whether he has definitely made that decision, I think some of that has to do with the (injured) toe. As the toe continues to rehab and starts to feel good, that will have a lot to do with it. If it lingers and he might struggle with it, that would certainly change it."
