Clock was continually running after out of bounds plays

Recommended Posts

Did anyone else notice how bad the refs were at stopping the clock on out of bounds plays in the second half? Something was going on there that the league will look at. Especially the fourth quarter.

The only one I saw that was blatant was the end of the first half when Singletary ran OB and the clock continued to run down to 2:00.  Clock only stops on OB plays in last 5 mins of each half.  It is restarted when the ball is spotted for play.

 

EDIT:  I was wrong, it's only last two minutes of 1st half.

The Refs do that all the time in the NFL. The call the tackle in bounds even though the runner or receiver is not stopped until he is OB. It's a glitch that goes on all the time. IMO, they are advised to call it that way to keep the games and clock moving.

There were many in the fourth quarter that I picked up and I don’t think everything was on the up and up

I've got the game on DVR and I'll rewatch.  Incomplete pass or timeout always stops the clock until the next snap.  OB before 5:00, clock is started after ball is spotted.  I will review and report back.

Awesome,  thanks! I’m in California and watch at BWW. I was noticing out of bounds plays mostly in 4th quarter when we were down

This is actually how it normally is...I’m  not sure what the rule are for clock stoppage, but I’ve noticed it usually keeps running unless there is only limited time remaining or it’s an incomplete pass.

It's supposed to be the clock is stopped OB and then as soon as it is set is it now 25. As they do it it is 40 from the end of the play. But the Refs very often call plays down in bounds when they are not really down, and then keep it running in the 40 scenario.

Clock is restarted in first half until 2 min warning. Its 5 min in 4th quarter.

Clock runs if players forward progress is stopped in bounds. Not fair to the defense to stop a guy only to have him go back a step and get out of bounds.

I didn't see any errors.

The rule is that the clock only stops within the last 5 minutes of each half on out of bounds plays. Otherwise it stos briefly until the ball is spotted then continues running. Its been like this for several years now at least.

 

So this actually has more to do with you not knowing the rules than the refs.

There was a play in the fourth quarter where the Jet was clearly tackled out of bounds, and the officials called the tackle in bounds and allowed it to run as a 40 second play. But it should have been a tackle OB. They do it often.

It is 2 minutes in the first half.

As ugly as that game was most of the day, the refs may have just been trying to hasten an end to their misery

Count me in that group as well then... I still thought it was only stopped inside two minutes.  Somehow, I haven't noticed the change.

 

Do we still not know what a catch is?  That's my biggest concern... it used to be so easy.

 

I wish the league would stop making rule changes each year based on how they thought the playoffs should have turned out the year before.

The ref can decide if it was a run out or a push out starting in-bounds.

They havent changed this rule for probably a decade. 2min in the first half, 5 min in the second half, if forward progress stopped clock runs.

Refs were good today for the most part other than missing illegal man downfield on the called back Jets TD.

The safety was an awful call. He was clearly across the goal line.

Refs think they can do what they want and they do. Should be the other way around.

If contact starts inbound, they consider it an in bounds play, so you need to run out of bound untouched. 

 

So all the defense has to do is briefly touch the offensive player with a single finger on his way out of bounds to keep the clock running?

That is the way they call it a lot of the time.
