Lets say its a playoff game, and last few seconds on the clock, the losing team has it at the 50, and with 5 secs they make a pass to a wide open receiver and as he is sprinting down, a big enough fan runs into the field and trips up the receiver and the game finishes. Will there be an automatic td or will the play be replayed? 🤔
A referee would have to make a judgement call.
The fan would get his *** beat before he got to the field. But even if he did get to the field I’m sure a professional athlete can dodge a 300 pound drunk guy…or run over him.
likely wouldn’t replay the down. They’d likely blow the play dead and mark off a 15 yard penalty, while giving them one more untimed down.
No, the receiver would get credit for a touchdown, same as if a player or coach came off the bench.
