“I caught it!” Patriots TE Hunter Henry on controversial call in New England, loss to Vikings

With just over six minutes left in the third quarter of the New England Patriots Week 12 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium, Pats quarterback Mac Jones found tight Hunter Henry on short left on 3rd and Goal for a score of six meters… seemingly his second touchdown catch in as many drives.

Although Henry’s reach to the end zone broke the goal line, the officials concluded that the tight end lost control of the ball as it went to ground. Despite having both hands under the ball, the call was reversed. New England was forced to settle for a 24-yard Nick Folk field goal, facilitating their 33-26 loss to the Vikings on Thanksgiving night.
