New York Giants lineman Dexter Lawrence may be owed an apology.
During Thursday Night Football, the WFT had a chance for a game winning field goal. And Dustin Hopkins missed the kick wide right.
But there was a flag on the field. Dexter Lawrence was ruled offside, and Hopkins would go on to make the kick for the win on the following try.

However, new angles released on the web on Friday would indicate that Dexter Lawrence was not offside. And that he was getting a perfect jump as the long snapper was picking up the ball.

Yeah…. Dexter Lawrence wasn’t offside he just got a perfect jump on the snap 🤦

Fans have taken to social media to weigh in on whether or not Dexter Lawrence was offsides.
Are we sure that guy was offsides? This angle makes it look like he jumps right at the snap? pic.twitter.com/tpLCV76SO4

Never like to blame the refs but I’ll just leave this here from the “offsides” pic.twitter.com/okcghvDf7K

The Dexter Lawrence offside looks like perfect timing to me.

Dexter Lawrence also spoke on if he thought he was offsides on the pivotal play.
Dexter Lawrence on zoom: “That’s on me. I gotta be more disciplined in that time, a critical situation. … I just gotta do better. …The refs call what they call.”
You weren’t offsides?
“That don’t really matter. My opinion don’t matter.” #NYG

Unfortunately for Dexter Lawrence and the New York Giants, the ref made the call, and the team dropped to 0-2 on the season.
To me, it looks way too close to tell if he was offsides or not.
