That is not what happened last night. The umpire incorrectly went with the touchdown call immediately, ignored the interception call, and then ruled there wasn't enough evidence to overturn it. That's not the proper procedure, and the reason why it was such a mess.
The referee should have huddled everyone and made the final call himself. I still don't know if it was "reviewed" as Jerry Seaman said that it's not a call that can be reviewed by replay. It was botched in every sense
