OK, so Im watching the Pittsburgh-KC game on MNF and Byron Leftwich is in for Ben Roethlisberger...Leftwich 'throws' a pass that was called a fumble on the field, and a KC player takes the fumble into the end zone for an apparent TD. The player and the Chiefs all celebrate the TD and get a celebration penalty (Yeah, that was stupid).

Well, after review, the play is called an incomplete pass. However, the celebration penalty is enforced. KC shouldnt have celebrated, but why should that penalty have been enforced? There was now no TD, so thus there would be no celebration, right?

I had the game on when the Chiefs missed on a 3rd and goal. So why is the score not 13-10? They were clearly in FG range. Did they go for it on 4th and goal?

Hey - the Chiefs finally got a lead (probably worthy of its own thread), and we have something nobody figured possible - a competitive game. No complaining please.

Just kidding...

Ryan Succop missed a chip-shot FG attempt.

Isn't excessive celebration a deadball penalty (i.e. unsporstmanlike conduct) which is not related to a play.

No one had the Titans this week, which is unsurprising. They definitely win the award for the most unpredictable team thus far.

I guess you are right...I never heard an explanation. Of course, I just wonder...and this may be splitting hairs, but no TD, no celebration...right? Now, I guess they celebrated an incomplete pass...
