Chiefs vs. Browns: Kansas City May Have Gotten Away With One On Forced Fumble

The Kansas City Chiefs created the first turnover of the game on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. It was a forced fumble by Chiefs LB Mike Vrabel.

But was it really a fumble?

Here's what I saw: The Browns running back had possession coughed up the ball when his body hit the ground and, as they say, the ground can't cause a fumble.

However, the officials originally called it a fumble. When Eric Mangini and the Browns challenged the ruling, the officials didn't come up with enough conclusive evidence that it wasn't a fumble.

I think the Chiefs got away with one there.
