SAN DIEGO -- The NFL acknowledged that referees erred in not penalizing the San Diego Chargers for an illegal formation on a missed 41-yard field goal attempt by Ryan Succop of the Kansas City Chiefs with 4 seconds left in regulation on Sunday. Steve McNair Jersey . Succop was wide right on the kick, and the Chargers went on to win 27-24 in overtime to claim the AFCs final playoff spot. The Pittsburgh Steelers would have been in the post-season had Kansas City won the game. San Diego lined up with seven men on one side of the snapper, and NFL rules state no more than six players can be on the line of scrimmage on either side of the snapper. The NFL said in a statement Monday that the penalty should have been called by referee Bill Leavys crew, moving the ball 5 yards closer to the end zone and giving Succop another attempt at the game-winning field goal. Succop was 15 of 16 this season from within 40 yards. The NFL did not say whether Leavys crew would be disciplined. "We misaligned on it. Im not going to deny it," Chargers rookie coach Mike McCoy said Monday. "But hey, those calls all balance themselves out over the year. Theyre part of the game. Were all human. ... Things happen for a reason. We didnt do it on purpose, I can tell you that." Chiefs coach Andy Reid actually called his final timeout after the missed field goal and tried to convince the officiating crew of the illegal formation. But because illegal formations are not reviewable, Reid had no other recourse and the play stood. "I called a timeout right there. That was for a reason," Reid said. "I couldnt challenge, all I had was a timeout, so maybe theyd take a peek and read through the timeout and see what took place, but listen, human error. ... Theres not much more you can say." The outcome of the game didnt have any bearing on the Chiefs, who rested most of their starters. Kansas City was already assured of the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs and will head to Indianapolis on Saturday for a rematch of a game won two weeks ago by the Colts. The result had significant repercussions for the Chargers and Steelers, though. San Diego (9-7) earned the final AFC playoff spot when Nick Novak kicked a 36-yard field goal in overtime to win the game. The Chargers will visit Cincinnati in the wild-card round Sunday. The Steelers (8-8), meanwhile, would have claimed the playoff spot through a series of tiebreakers had Kansas City won, and Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin even said Monday he knew the Chargers were lined up illegally before the field goal attempt. "What transpired yesterday was unfortunate for our hopes moving forward. Well have to find a way to accept that and move forward," Tomlin said. "Im not going to lose any sleep over something that happened in a stadium that we werent even in." Ryan Succop Jersey . Canadas 5-1 loss to Finland in the semifinal ranks as the tournaments most-watched game with a record 2.7 million viewers, the largest ever for a World Juniors game played outside of North America, and winning Saturday as the most-watched program on Canadian television. Adoree Jackson Jersey . CBS Sports Jon Heyman is reporting that Santana will sign a one-year deal, likely in the next two days with one of a trio of suitors, with the Toronto Blue Jays believed to be heavily involved.LOS ANGELES -- Only final arguments and a ruling remain in the trial to determine whether Donald Sterlings estranged wife can sell the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion. Lawyers for Sterling plan to argue Monday that Shelly Sterling had no right to make the deal with Ballmer, even though Donald Sterling had given her written authority to pursue a sale. The attorneys also say she tricked Donald Sterling into taking mental exams that found he had signs of the onset of Alzheimers disease. That finding was sufficient for Sterling to be removed as a trustee of the Sterling Family Trust and to allow Shelly Sterling to move forward with the sale of the team. Later in the process, however, Donald Sterling tried to stop the sale by dissolving the trust. Lawyers for Shelley Sterling urged the judge to allow the sale to go forward so a contract can be in place before NBA owners meet on Aug. 15. Lawyers spent the better part of a month questioning witnesses at the trial, and on Monday will try to persuade a judge to agree with their respective positions. Shelly Sterlings lawyers along with an attorney for Ballmer filed a voluminous legal brief citing case law that they say proves that Donald Sterling did not have the right to dissolve the trust that owned the Clippers. They urged the judge to allow the sale to occur and reject any delay if appeals are filed. "The trust has a golden bird in the hand," the brief said. "A sale of the Clippers for $2 billion is indisputably a bonanza for the Sterling family. Donalds strident opposition is motivated by only selfish considerations. This court has the power to make this precedent-setting sale happen." The 49-page document notes that if the sale is ordered,, it also could be delayed by numerous legal provisions in the probate code allowing review of the ruling. Jack Conklin Jersey. The lawyers urged Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas to streamline the procedure. They cited 80-year-old Sterlings vow on the witness stand to continue suing the NBA for the rest of his life and noted his threat to seek an injunction to stop the sale if the judge rules against him. Donald Sterling was removed as a trustee after his wife had him examined by two doctors who found he lacked the mental capacity to handle his own business affairs. His lawyers filed a 70-page brief that focused heavily on that point. They said the doctors were hand-picked by lawyers for Shelly Sterling and did not do adequate exams. Donald Sterling maintained he didnt know his competency as a trustee was being evaluated. His lawyers said in their brief that he appeared alert and able to express himself during his testimony and showed no signs of being incompetent. Still, Sterling spent much of his time on the witness stand shouting at attorneys for both sides, expressing his outrage at the NBA and its commissioner for trying to oust him from the league over racist recordings. At one point he called Shelly Sterling a "pig" as she left the witness stand. Donald Sterling has filed another lawsuit in state court against Shelly Sterling, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and the league. Shelly Sterlings potentially record-breaking deal with Ballmer was struck after Donald Sterlings racist remarks to a girlfriend were recorded and publicized. The NBA moved to oust him as team owner, fined him $2.5 million and banned him for life. Shelly Sterling went to probate court to ensure that the sale she negotiated with Ballmer would go through.
