Several players from both teams stopped on the play and at least one Raven, strong-side linebacker Courtney Upshaw, started walking toward the sideline with his hands in the air in celebration and his back to the play. Dumervil, however, kept rushing Bortles and eventually yanked the quarterback's facemask while bringing him to the ground.
The penalty moved the ball to the Ravens' 35-yard line, gave the Jaguars an untimed down and allowed Myers to attempt the game-winning field goal. The loss left the Ravens with a 2-7 record and trying to digest what coach John Harbaugh called "about as tough of [a loss] as it gets."
Harbaugh spoke to Dean Blandino, the league's vice president of officiating, on Monday about the final seconds of Sunday's game. He declined to comment on whether Blandino acknowledged that the NFL missed the call, saying only, "The league has looked at it and they know it.
"If you saw it on tape, it's pretty obvious what happened as far as them not being set," Harbaugh said. "When you come up to snap the ball, we understood the timing of the thing. If they caught the ball in play more than 10 yards down the field, they weren't going to be able to get the snap off with everybody set. We knew the timing of it. We do a lot of studies on that, we understood that. With that amount of time left, they didn't get the snap off in the sense that they didn't get everybody set."
The Ravens didn't comment after the NFL's public admission of the officiating error, but Harbaugh said Monday afternoon that the team was moving on. They face the St. Louis Rams Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium.
