MERCER COUNTY –  A Mercer County prison inmate is suing the NFL.  Officials say Daniel Spuck filed the lawsuit last week saying referees should have called an illegal formation penalty against San Diego in their game against Kansas City on December 29th. 

Spuck claims if the penalty had been called, Kansas City would have had another chance at the field goal which cost them the game. 

If Kansas City had won the game, the Steelers would have made the playoffs.  Spuck is asking for the playoffs be postponed so Kansas City can re-do the kick.
