I asked the Twitterverse on Tuesday to come up with a nickname for the last play of the Panthers-Patriots game Monday night, when Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly was first flagged for pass interference against New England tight end Rob Gronkowski in the Panther end zone with 0:00 on the clock. Then the call was reversed after the officials determined Gronkowski couldn't have caught the ball anyway, and the Panthers won, 24-20. Had the original call stood, the Patriots would have gotten one play from the 1 to try and score a game-winning touchdown.
Here were some of the best entries, all submitted via Twitter to @Scott_Fowler. A three-person panel judged "Immaculate Perception," written by David Wood, as the winner of the modest prize -- a copy of my new book chronicling the Panthers. Thanks to all who entered.
