Hurr durr, they ruled Lucas didn't touch the ball, which made the contact roughing. Shouldn't have been roughing since he clearly touched it. Better know what you're talking about if you're running your mouth.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Ken Lucas and Julius Peppers pushed through the line, grasping at air in an effort to block Billy Cundiff's field goal.
Lucas was positive his left middle finger touched the ball right before he and Peppers crashed into the kicker. The deflection changed the trajectory, caused Cundiff's attempt to miss and locked up a postseason berth for the Carolina Panthers.
The officials said otherwise.
Peppers was called for roughing the kicker, giving the Dallas Cowboys a second chance to keep their fading playoff hopes alive.
