I thought the spot challenge by Pete was brilliant because it sucked up a lot of time, disrupted Rams momentum, and gave our D a chance to rest.
It was like a 5-minute interruption. Pete challenged at the last possible moment.

The official spotted the ball wrong, they admitted that, so technically we 'won' the challenge.
Just because it's still, barely, a first down, shouldn't negate the fact that the ball was spotted wrong.
Pretty sure I have seen a game with similar circumstances(I.E. wrong spot, but still a first down), where the team didn't lose a timeout.
