The referees have at long last discovered a way to put a halt to the well-known "Tush Push" move carried out by the Philadelphia Eagles.
On "Monday Night Football" in Week 15, the Eagles were playing the Seahawks at Lumen Field in Seattle, Wash., and they were faced with a third-and-1 situation at the Seahawks' 3-yard line.
Many anticipated the Eagles' next play would be the "Tush Push" quarterback sneak. However, center Jason Kelce was flagged for a false start by the authorities.
After Kelce advanced the ball beyond the area where the referee had first detected it, he was penalized for a false start.
The NFL has recently shifted its focus to the topic of false starts following a number of surprise calls. Including this one on the list is possible.
A ban on the "Tush Push" might be on the table for the upcoming offseason, according to certain reports. At least the authorities can stop Kelce from advancing the ball before the snap till then.
