Refs Got the Call Right on Strange Play at End of First Half in Eagles-Bears Playoff Game

CHICAGO - Apparently, the refs were right?

It was a strange circumstance at the end of the first half, when the officials ruled a deep ball to Anthony Miller incomplete after Cre'Von LeBlanc ripped the ball free.

There was a review and the official on the field said there was no clear recovery, so the ruling would stand. That seems strange, because that basically admits it's a completed pass but the ball doesn't advance. It's almost sounds like,"Hey, we don't know what to do here, so forget it ever happened."
