Don't know how many watched it, I only caught the last few minutes, but NFL Network aired an hour replay of the game last night with players and coaches mic'd up. Before the kickoff (free kick) on the last play of the game, Flacco said to several of his teammates that they should run on the field and tackle the guy (from the sideline) if he should happen to break free. He went on to say that he had no idea what the rule was, but what's the worst they could do? Give them the touchdown?
Got me to wondering, what the official rule is in that situation? Anyone know what would happen to a player who interfered with a live play from the sideline?
I would guess there would be huge trouble from the NFL, but would it cause a forfeit or a replay or give them the TD? Anyone know?
