ARLINGTON, Texas – Malcolm Jenkins had a pointed response toward the replay officials when Dallas was able to keep the ball on the opening kickoff despite a fumble recovered by Eagles linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill at around the Cowboys' 20 yard line.

"Whoever is watching that in New York should stay off the bottle," Jenkins said, referring to the those reviewing the call.

The Eagles appeared to recover a fumble on the opening kickoff but the replay officials disagreed.

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins didn’t mince words when asked about the call after the game. So whoever’s watching that in New York should stay off the bottle .” The Cowboys would go on to I did watch this game and the opening kickoff was clearly a fumble which refs did not call realtime eagles

At first, the officials ruled that Cowboys returner Jourdan Lewis was down by contact. But the Eagles challenged that call, and it was thus reviewed. It appeared as if the ball was under LaRoy Reynolds with several Eagles pinning the ball underneath him.

But the officials determined that there wasn't a clear recovery, so the Cowboys kept the ball. That lost challenge also cost the Eagles a timeout.

The Eagles ended up losing 29-23 in overtime Sunday.

Jenkins, who was one of the Eagles in on the play, was dumbfounded by the explanation.

"That was a pretty terrible call, to be honest," he said. "They reviewed it, and the explanation I got was that it wasn’t a clear recovery, although Kamu had the ball in his hand, and it was only Eagles defenders on the ball on the replay."

Malcolm Jenkins is not buying replay officials ' reasoning behind a controversial ruling that happened on the opening kickoff of Sunday's 29-23 overtime Philadelphia did challenge the call, and it was ruled a fumble upon review. So whoever's watching that in New York should stay off the bottle ."

ARLINGTON, Texas – Malcolm Jenkins had a pointed response toward the replay officials when Dallas was able to keep the ball on the opening kickoff despite a fumble recovered by Eagles linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill at around the Cowboys' 20 yard line.

Then he added: "It was a clear fumble. That wasn’t even the close part. They said they didn’t see a clear recovery. Again, common sense, you saw Kamu come up with the ball. Obviously, they don’t pay me to make calls like that. But in hindsight, it was a big play in the game."

Head referee Clete Blakeman was asked about the play by a pool reporter after the game.

"We've got to have clear evidence that there was a fumble, which we did," Blakeman said. "The second component of it was there a clear recovery? And that's just what we couldn't confirm with the angles we had on video to make it a clear recovery by Philadelphia, so we had to stay with the ruling on the field."

Blakeman was then asked about the pileup.

After win over Redskins, Eagles have one more chance to save season Sunday at Dallas

After win over Redskins, Eagles have one more chance to save season Sunday at Dallas After Monday night, we probably should count the Washington Redskins out until further notice. They lost Alex Smith to a season-ending injury in November, and Colt McCoy to a season-ending fractured fibula on Monday night. The Eagles are still in the mix after a 28-13 win over the Redskins on Monday night. It wasn’t a pretty win, but little with the Eagles this season has been pretty. They just leaned on a Sanchez-led Redskins team and that was enough. The Eagles are just 6-6, a game behind the Cowboys, but the season might look a lot different after their trip to Texas.

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins suggested NFL replay officials in New York " stay off the bottle " following a controversial call on the opening kickoff that loomed large in Philly's 29-23 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Jenkins said the replay official from last week's game should " stay off the bottle .".

"That was discussed," he said. "So situationally, we have a pileup. I mean, it's really hard unless we have somebody with clear possession and control of it before the pileup begins, and then we can give it to them. We just didn't have that on this one."

Grugier-Hill also said it was clear that the Eagles recovered the ball. If it wasn't him, there were a few other players around the ball.

In fact, the Eagles offense and Cowboys defense were on the field even before the ruling was announced.

"They just said the video didn’t show me getting up with the ball, so, that’s on them," Grugier-Hill said. "It was all green jerseys. But they said nothing you can do. It’s on them. Whatever."

Had the Eagles taken possession there, they most likely would have scored at least a field goal to take an early lead. As it was, the Eagles didn't score until the third quarter, after they fell behind 9-0.

"But when you make a play as big as that, and it’s taken away from you, for nothing, from our vantage point – that’s a little bit tough. But we got over it immediately, kept playing, kept fighting.

"In a game where it’s going to be tight, it’s going to go tit-for-tat, you need every single play. You look back, and it’s unfortunate that call was made."
