Bills score touchdown off disputed Matt Ryan fumble

Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White scored his first career touchdown Sunday against the Falcons, returning a disputed Matt Ryan fumble 52 yards for an easy score.

Was it a fumble or an incompletion? Jerry Hughes hit Ryan as he threw, but the quarterback's hand appeared to still propel the ball forward while it was in his possession. But the play was allowed to continue on the field and was held up on review.

The CBS broadcast said word from the NFL in New York was that they "couldn't definitively say that Matt Ryan regained control" of the ball.

The score gave the Bills a 14-10 lead in the third quarter. Falcons receivers Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu have both been ruled out.

Mike Pereira, the NFL's former Vice President of Officiating, tweeted that he thought Ryan still had possession of the ball. Fox rules analyst Dean Blandino disagreed.
