ESPN's Sport Science crew took a closer look at the physics of the final play of Monday Night Football and determined Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski likely could have caught the final pass if he had not been interfered with by Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly.

A major factor in the officiating crew's decision to pick up a flag thrown by the back judge was whether the ball was catchable. The officials claimed it was not.
