    I run a head-to-head league on Yahoo. I had originally lost this past week by 4 points. That is until...

    Les Bowen, of the Philadelphia Daily news, reports the NFL has changed Philadelphia Eagles WR Reggie Brown's catch and fumble that resulted in a fumble recovery and touchdown for RB Correll Buckhalter has been changed. The NFL ruled Brown did not have possession before Buckhalter caught his deflection, giving Buckhalter a 55-yard touchdown reception instead of a fumble recovery. WR Reggie Brown now has one catch for 18 yards during the Week 10 game. QB Donovan McNabb now has 257 yards passing in addition to the 55-yard touchdown pass.

    That lovely stat correction turned a 4 point loss into a 3 point win (6 for the td and 1 for 50 yds passing). It also put me back in 1st place all by my lonesome.

    Gotta love it!

    Funny how my NFL.com league has yet to add these stats for McNabb.

    The guy I was playing has McNabb. Not that it makes a difference in the outcome, I still win, but it is odd that the official NFL site hasn't recognized this change in the stats.
