The stat correction changed a sack to a tackle.

David Purdum of ESPN writes:

For 30 minutes after Monday's game ended, Rob Huntze thought he had won the $1 million first prize in a DraftKings contest.

Everything had worked out perfectly for Huntze down the stretch of the Rams' 24-10 win. One of Huntze's lineups that featured both the Bears' and Rams' defenses had scored 92.79 points, the most out of the 176,470 entries. His computer screen showed a $1 million first prize.

Huntze even texted family and friends that he had won the prize.

Then it happened: The sack originally credited to the Bears' defense late in the fourth quarter was changed to a running play, a 3-yard loss by Rams quarterback Jared Goff.

"Heartbreaking on many levels," a resigned Huntze told ESPN on Tuesday.
