Now that the hilarity of the event has died down, my curiousity takes control.
If someone on the Riders team had realized there were too many men, what were the options?
- Take a time out. (That one I figured out on my own...)
Assuming they didn't have a time out or didn't think to call one, what were the other options.
Could Armstead have run out the back of the end zone? Is that a proper way to leave the field of play or can it only be off the sidelines?
Could some one from the line ran off the sidelines or were the Riders then due for a procedure call for 13 men in the huddle?
Just curious what the various options might have existed for the Riders to not lose this way.
