On Sunday, he helped deliver New England an early Christmas present by snagging five receptions on seven targets for 67 yards and one of the most impressive touchdown catches of the 2017 Patriots season in a 37-16 win at Gillette Stadium. One of those performances, Week 13 against the Bills, he had nine catches for 147 yards, sending him into Sunday with 61 catches and 11 touchdowns in 12 games against Buffalo.
The play comes a week after Jesse James' apparent go-ahead touchdown was reversed in the Steelers' 27-24 loss to New England.
The Bills ended up kicking a field goal to tie the score at 13 points apiece entering halftime.
The play shocked Benjamin, who thought he had given his team a big momentum boost heading into half time. "If you think about it, I got here eight years ago".
The list included former National Football League officiating VP Mike Pereira.
"When Kelvin Benjamin gains control, his left foot is off the ground". "The receiver only has one foot down in bounds with control. Therefore, it is an incomplete pass", Riveron wrote.
"It was clear and obvious that he did not have control of the ball until he brought it all the way down into his chest", referee Craig Wrolstad said in a pool report after the game.
Chelsea draw Premier League oppposition in semi-finals of the Carabao Cup
Chelsea were on course to win a League and FA Cup double last May but Arsenal stunned the Blues 2-1 in the final at Wembley. Cahill believes any talk of the Gunners holding a mental advantage is wide of the mark.
The play elicited immediate reaction on social media.
The New England Patriots tight end was asked what it says about the organization that's been able to win 12 or more games for eight straight seasons.
Benjamin was ruled by officials on the field as having caught the pass from Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor in the corner of the end zone. That's more than he has had against any other opponent.
"It's cool", Gronkowski said, "when you're hometown team passed on you twice in that draft and you kind of remember that still".
"We know we've got to have, you know, some things have to happen (to make the playoffs)", White said. "So, no lie. I remember it every single time I play them".
At first, it was because the Bills seemed to appreciate that their quest for a playoff berth would be wounded if they engaged in extracurricular activity that might result in suspensions.
