Maybe you guys can help me understand the interpretation of the sack rule.
During the final qtr of the round 7 monday night game between the Vikes and the Giants Eli Manning was sacked, happens with about 5:15 to go in the game.
Eli receives the snap, looks up and sees no one to pass to, puts the ball under his arm and runs around to his left and slides at the line of scrimmage for no gain.
I always thought when the QB decides to run and is tackled behind the line of scrimmage its not recorded as a sack??
