Triplette defended not stopping play, saying it would have given an “unfair advantage.” But Blandino said Monday that was the wrong decision.

Giants defensive end Justin Tuck, who played every snap, said he was aware it was not a first down.

“I remember turning to the referee and saying, `That’s not a first down,’ `’ Tuck said Monday. ” Obviously, they’re hurrying up, you don’t really have time to argue it.

“I think at the end of the day, it was actually the right call. It might not have come across in the right manner, but I think it was the right call. And when the ball is getting snapped that fast, it’s very tough for a referee to get all of these calls right.”
