The Victor Cruz Rule
Everybody expected the referees to call a fumble after Cruz dropped the ball in Super Bowl XLVI. However, he successfully caught the ball so this would have been a big mistake. Luckily, the officials got themselves off the hook because of a flag. But it was almost one of the most controversial calls in Super Bowl history.
This wasn’t the only time that a Cruz ‘fumble’ made headlines after a notorious incident against the Cardinals. The Super Bowl is a momentous occasion with every moment receiving intense analysis. Critics slated the referees for this lousy decision but luckily it didn’t affect the game. Other players on this list weren’t as lucky (via ESPN).
