After review, Gene Steratore changes his stance on Pat Surtain-Romeo Doubs play

Officials ruled that Green Bay Packers wide receiver Romeo Doubs caught a touchdown pass against Denver Broncos cornerback Pat Surtain on Sunday.

Some fans and pundits — including ex-referee and current CBS rules expert Gene Steratore — thought that Surtain actually should have been awarded an interception on the play.

The game’s ref, Alex Kemp, disagreed with Steratore’s interpretation of the play, and after two days of review, Steratore himself has now changed his tune.

“No matter what you do, owning up and taking accountability is how you get better,” Steratore wrote on his Twitter/X page on Tuesday. “My interpretation of the play in #GBvsDEN was incorrect. I overthought it and just missed it. As a ref (whether grade school or pro), you learn the most from the <5% of calls that you miss.”

The play was still controversial, but thankfully, Doubs scoring did not decide the game. Denver held on to beat Green Bay 19-17.
