Simultaneous Catch. If a pass is caught simultaneous by two eligible opponents, and both players retain it, the ball belongs to the passers. It is not a simultaneous catch if a player gains control first and an opponent subsequently gains control.
Jenning clearly gained control first (caught the ball with both hands in the ai) and Tate had subsequent control on the grown. So it should be ruled an INT because it's clearly NOT a simultaneous catch as defined by the rules.
On my phone so some of these are difficult to quote and cut.
Your last sentence
"Clearly NOT simultaneous possession"
This is what I am arguing. I cannot say that. I see tates left hand in the mix I see they both touch the ball and very close to the same time. 3 hands on the ball and I see a bunch of receivers make that catch without ever needing the 2nd hand.
