Adam Schefter of NFL.COM explained on ESPN this morning why there was no booth review and Mike Pereira, former head of NFL officiating, backed him on this.
From the time it hit Evans in the cradle and he starts stepping back the first foot is down but once possession was established the 2nd foot does not get down before the ball gets stripped. It was very clear on some camera angles they showed .
If BOTH feet had touched down prior to that strip then we would have seen a review and a most imminent call reversal.
I thought they had gaffed yesterday but no doubt in my mind that they made the right call per the parameters of the rule.
