Every rule I've seen related to this play deals with a receiver who does not have complete control of the ball. There is no doubt this guy had complete control - he even tucked the ball away as he came down. He has control, gets tackled in the endzone - Touchdown Raiders!!!!!

If thats your idea of tucking a ball away then perhaps you should stick with an easier game.....like duck duck goose. It wasnt touchdown
I would be a vegetarian if BACON grew on trees
NFL rules contradict each other. The receiver must have full control when he hits the ground, etc. But when a player stretches out to break the "plane" of the goal line anything goes....Seriously a fkng joke. If I hear that NFL shill Mike whatever ex ref come up with anymore BS excuses I'm gonna go postal. I had no vested interest in the Raider game. But how can the rules be so inconsistent with each other. The play is over when he hits the ground with the ball, so we can all hear the imaginary whistle? Now you cant even fall on a QB during a sack?
I guess your suppose to be Matrix man and lift yourself to be airborne while your going down.....

Kinda like yesterday's "catch" in TN by that Houston receiver. Um, okay. Guy totally bobbles the ball loose after he hits the ground, picks it up & they call it a TD. Sure. Even my dad -- a Raider hater -- goes, "How the eff is that a TD after what happened in Oakland last week?"
Total inconsistency -- as per usual in the NFL.
