Referee knocks over Cam Bynum resulting in Commanders touchdown

The Minnesota Vikings had a tremendous first drive of the game but the second half didn’t start off well at all with the Commanders scoring a touchdown on the opening drive.

Unfortunately for the Vikings, they were on the wrong end of an incredibly fluky play as Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel caught a 49-yard touchdown to take a 10-7 lead.

What made the play so fluky? The back judge ran right into safety Camryn Bynum causing him to get knocked down instead of a likely interception.

Unfortunately for the Vikings, this isn’t something that can be changed. The referee is a part of the field of play and it ends up as an unfortunate, poor result for the purple and gold.

This isn’t the first time that it’s happened. The most notable was to Joe Horn and the New Orleans Saints back in 2001.

Hopefully, the Vikings can overcome this and find a way to win the game.
