I know. I was watching the game. I just wondered if any of the experts here knew the actual rule number. I like to see exactly how it's worded.

If you don't have anything else to do......read the book:

IMMHO, the rules are hard to find and very subjective (as in this case). In this case, there is NO hope......if YOUR guy is going down, and a defender may have came close, ,,,,,it is a lost cause. Nice play on the Giant's Long Snapper to get down the field so fast.
