FOXBORO (CBS) — Late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game, the Packers were trying to come back. Brandon Meriweather got a key interception, but it was erased by a penalty on Tully Banta-Cain. 

The call: illegal hands to the face.

Afterwards Tully was not so sure.

“Obviously it’s a judgment call, but at the same time my hands were in the vicinity of his face. His were actually in mine too,” Banta-Cain said. “It was a judgment of the ref and he was actually front row, standing right by the play.

“Will that play get called nine out of 10 times? Probably not,” Banta-Cain continued. “But they caught me on that one so I’ve got to live with it.”

Tully got the final say. On the last play of the game, he got that sack that forced the fumble that ended the game.  All’s well that ends well.

“It wasn’t something where I was going in saying I had to go out and redeem myself,” Banta-Cain said. “I wasn’t thinking that negatively about what my play could potentially result in.

“I was more positive in the fact that we were making mistakes as a team. In the end I think it was a rewarding play from a full-team aspect. I didn’t make the play on my own.”
