Refs fumble Vernon Davis turnover review

The refs play a big part in 49ers tying game with Redskins

Vernon Davis was going down when the ball was stripped by the 49ers’ Ray Ray Armstrong. The play was returned for a touchdown by Jimmie Ward for what appeared to be a touchdown. Kirk Cousins pushed Ward out of bounds, and the play went under automatic review for a turnover/score. The replay appeared to show Vernon Davis’ forearm down before Armstrong stripped the ball. The refs did not agree with the video, and confirmed the fumble. The only upside was the touchdown was overturned, as Ward stepped out of bounds after the Cousins push. Carlos Hyde ran the ball in for a touchdown on the next play and the 49ers tied the game up 17-17. Vernon Davis was down.
