Which blown call was more egregious: Rams interference or Chiefs roughing? | The Tylt
The NFL conference championships had two calls that marred otherwise thrilling games. In the NFC Championship, the Rams got away with a blatant pass interference that ultimately resulted in the Saints losing the game. In the AFC Championship, the Chiefs were flagged by a weak "roughing" the passer call where Chris Jones barely makes contact with Tom Brady after letting go of a pass. Which one was worse? 🏈
Which blown call was more egregious: Rams interference or Chiefs roughing?
Pass interference calls can sometimes go either way, but what Nickell Robey-Coleman did to Tommylee Lewis was black and white. Even to the naked eye, everyone knew he was interfered with. Even Robey-Coleman knew it! The Saints could've put the game further away with a touchdown had it not been for the blown call. The refs need to make that obvious call.
The league is trying to protect the quarterback, but this is just ridiculous. Chris Jones barely touched Brady's helmet and yet got flagged for roughing the passer. Without that call, the Patriots would've been put in a difficult 3rd and long instead of marching down the field to score a go-ahead touchdown. If there's any evidence that New England gets preferential treatment, it's this "violent" hit. 🙄
