Look at Wilfork in the GIF.
Watch his shoulders and back of jersey as he violently spins and lifts Moore off the ground.
Now look at Sanchez in the GIF.
He starts his slide before he hits Moore. Watch his knees bend and his helmet dip prior to contact. He's in the process of sliding.
A valiant argument but if you look at the yard markers, the oline has a push forward from scrimmage (at or just before the 31 yard line) Moore is not pushed back and actually is holding his ground, Sanchez takes out Moores knee from behind and they both fall in front of the 31 yard line, so Mark would have gained a yard if he held onto the football, butt... we all know how that turned out
edit: First time I have watched that since canceling Thanksgiving football so Thanks for helping me start the healing process
