Lots of controversy—fun, silly controversy—over the overtime penalty on the Patriots that may have cost them Sunday's game at the Jets. Tackle Chris Jones was flagged for pushing teammate Will Svitek into the offensive line, negating a missed field goal. The first conspiracy theory was that the NFL had retroactively changed the rulebook; that was false. The second and currently in-vogue retort from New England is that the Jets used the same push move during the game, and it went uncalled.
