NFL is changing Pittsburgh touchdown
Posted Oct. 10 at 11:58 AM
I just got off the phone with the Elias Sports Bureau. This is the official statistician for the league.
They are changing the touchdown in the Pittsburgh. It's now being called a pass. Originally, it was called a lateral.
Ben Roethlisberger now gets credit for a 13-yard touchdown pass. The change will show up soon around the web in all the various places. His final passing numbers will be increased to 22 of 38 for 220 yards, with 1 TD and no interceptions.
(Original: 21 of 37 for 207, no TDs, no interceptions).
Rashard Mendenhall's overall yards stay the same, but there's a switch from rushing to receiving. When you check his numbers around the web later today and tomorrow, you'll see 13 carries for 68 yards and no touchdowns, and 3 receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown. 101 total yards.
(For Mendenhall, the outdated numbers were 14-81 and a TD on the ground, and 2 for 20 as a pass catcher.
