  1. As a Patriots fan, who had a loss tallied against his team because of the “propelling a fellow player forward” rule, how was the Peterson play not flagged for the same type of penalty? The offensive rule has been in the books for a lot longer and is never enforced, yet the special teams version cost my team a chance to win. Not only should Peterson’s td have been negated the Vikings should have been moved back from the spot of the foul.

    • I was wondering the same thing but read a reason why it wasn’t called. Apparently the “safety issue” and reason for the rule is pushing players into the line of scrimmage. Because Peterson was downfield and pass all the lineman, that’s why it was considered to be legal.
