As you can see, that was as soon as clearly a landing. Okwuegbunam remained in bounds and reached the pylon. It was as soon as a coaching mistake that can’t occur. That rule has been around for 10 years.
Giants fans didn’t react kindly to the error either.

Grand-time mistake for Joe Snatch there. Has to know you can’t challenge a scoring play. It’s been this style for years now. Second half of timeouts are extraordinarily costly to burn. The #Giants were outcoached in all three key phases to this level if we’re being factual about this: HC, OC, DC.

The Giants agree with Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunamo was as soon as out of bounds before he bought to the pylon, so Joe Snatch throws the challenge flag.
