Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin acknowledged that his coaching staff identified an illegal field-goal block technique by the Ravens that wasn’t penalized, an oversight the team turned into the league, NFL.com first reported.
The Ravens’ Chris Canty pushed into the back of a teammate on Caleb Sturgis’ missed 57-yard attempt at the end of regulation on Oct. 6 — an infraction that should have resulted in a 15-yard penalty and a re-kick.
The Dolphins were awarded neither, and NFL.com reported the league has since admitted the mistake.
On Tuesday, Philbin declined to get into specifics.
“We turn in plays on a routine basis to the league,” Philbin said. “That’s all I’m going to say.”
The Dolphins lost to the Ravens 26-23.
