Andy Reid swears that knee never touched the ground.

Running back Charcandrick West twisted and turned, but remained off the turf. And Reid thinks West's touchdown run on fourth-and-short should've counted.

"His knee didn't touch the ground," Reid told reporters. "That was the bottom line."

The referees disagreed, despite clear evidence that West wriggled out of a backfield tackle and never knelt on the turf.

Reid even tried -- albeit unsuccessfully -- to challenge the non-call. It didn't work.

"He wasn't down," Reid said. "That's why I tried to challenge it. When you look at it, you can probably see that."
