Davante Adams gets credit for controversial touchdown catch

Davante Adams catch

Davante Adams was credited with a touchdown catch on a controversial play in the first quarter of Green Bay’s game against the San Francisco 49ers in Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. on Thursday night.

The Packers had a 2nd-and-8 at the San Francisco 36 on their opening drive. Aaron Rodgers threw into the left part of the end zone for Adams, who made a crazy catch by the sideline.

The ruling on the field was a touchdown. But was that the right call?

FOX NFL rules expert Mike Pereira acknowledged the play was close and said you have to have either two feet down or another body part other than the hand or the foot.

Adams appeared to get his elbow down in bounds on the play, barely.

The touchdown and extra point gave Green Bay an early 7-0 lead.
