The Dennis Johnson Authentic Jersey fallout from the touchdown-turned-fumble in Sunday’s Jets-Patriots game continued on Monday.

Riveron, on a conference call with reporters, explained that Seferian-Jenkins did not regain possession of the ball as he crossed the goal line. He also said there was enough video evidence to overturn the call.
