NFL SVP of Officiating Explains Why Vikings’ Touchdown Didn’t Count

As the Vikings were in the middle of staging the largest comeback in NFL history on Saturday afternoon, the home team was the recipient of what appeared to be a bad call that took a pivotal touchdown off the board.

In the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game, Colts running back Deon Jackson fumbled at the Indianapolis 39. Vikings defensive back Chandon Sullivan recovered the fumble and returned it for a touchdown, but the touchdown didn’t count as officials ruled that Jackson was down by contact.

The officials reviewed the play and ultimately awarded the ball to the Vikings, but the call on the field took a touchdown off the board that would have made the score 36–34, pending a two-point conversion to tie the game.
