    It's only intentional grounding if he is between the tackles and doesn't throw the ball past the line of scrimmage.

    I fault the Giant's special teams overall for generally screwing up field goals all day long, this was no exception, and even with the off-setting penalties, I think he had no chance of hitting the field goal anyway.

    I agree, I think the Giants blew it themselves (and so did the Browns for that matter...)

    You don't think? Wasn't it only like a 41 yard attempt? (I don't even know who the Giants kicker is, btw... )

    Doh! I apparently failed reading comprehension.

    We can all feel in good company that the NFL, the refs, and all the sportswriters still seem rather confused by the whole thing!

    Yeah, I think he would have missed it because they blew one in the same range badly earlier, and really the snapper was just not going to help matters any.
