With five seconds left in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game, the Atlanta Falcons scored a go-ahead touchdown that was overturned upon review. Then, with time expiring, Julio Jones won the game with an incredible touchdown that also had to be reviewed.
Jones was initially ruled short of the goal line. But after the game had already been called, a review was buzzed down onto the field. After an extensive review, the call was overturned.
This game-winning touchdown has wide-ranging ramifications in the NFC. With the loss, the 49ers fall to 11-3, tied with the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks atop the NFC with two weeks remaining.
