Despite two-thirds of the NFL already having played seven games, no other team in the league has been called for more than 10 pass interference penalties this season. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are next on the list with 10 through seven games. While the 49ers have only had 11 of the 14 penalties actually accepted, it’s still been a significant issue for the team through the first two months of the season. So much so that head coach Kyle Shanahan is making efforts in practice to correct the problem. “We’re changing up all our individual drills today,” Shanahan said, via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. “No footwork stuff. We’re throwing jump balls and having them trying to locate the ball, which...
    PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA – OCTOBER 03: Jalen Hurts #1 of the Philadelphia Eagles looks on before playing against the Kansas City Chiefs at Lincoln Financial Field on October 03, 2021 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. (Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/Getty Images) Taunting, for once, wasn’t the storyline in Week 6, as the NFL’s officials found new ways to infuriate fans across the league rather than their usual antics. This doesn’t mean, however, that the zebras didn’t find a way to penalize light contact for no good reason. Taunting calls are generally maddening, as they limit self-expression in a game predicated on violence and individualism. Far too often, owners and those who would rather the game be played by robotic versions of the players we’ve grown to love win out. Even if not through means of taunting penalties, officials limit contact to the nth degree, despite the game being advertised as having the exact opposite approach. This leads to some troubling interpretations of the rulebook, the likes of which can only be described with negative adjectives. 3 worst calls from Week 6 in the NFLBuccaneers...
    Referees missed a blatant pass interference penalty during Thursday night football between the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It is Week 6 of the 2021 NFL season, and it began on Thursday night, as the Philadelphia Eagles hosted the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As it is in nearly every game, the referees missed a blatant penalty. During the game, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts targeted second-year wide receiver Jalen Reagor down field. However, Buccaneers cornerback Jamel Dean was on the wideout’s back and made contact with his arm before the football even reached them. It sure looked like a pass interference penalty, but not to the on-field officials. Take a look for yourself and you be the judge.

    Cleveland Browns cornerback A.J. Green was the victim of an atrocious pass interference call during a 47-42 loss to the Chargers. It looked like Los Angeles was going to be stopped on the drive, but instead got bailed out when Green was flagged for PI on Mike Williams. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Not only was it not defensive PI, it could have easily been offensive PI. Watch a video of the play below.

So, while it probably wasn’t the only call that helped them win the game, it played a huge role. Bad calls happen in sports. It’s just what happens when you have humans involved in the process.

    China Box Office: ‘Battle at Lake Changjin’ Marches Past $600M Hellish situation: 3 arrested after shootout at Minnesota bar leaves 1 dead, at least 14 injured Baker Mayfield knows his team's loss on Sunday doesn’t sit solely on the shoulders of the officials who called the game. That, though, didn’t stop the Cleveland Browns quarterback from calling them out after their 47-42 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers at SoFi Stadium — even though he knows the league will almost certainly hit him with a fine for doing so. “Late in the game … might as well forward the fine letter now. We asked the ref on the sideline how the hell he missed that call,” Mayfield said, via The Athletic’s Zac Jackson. “They were shoving [receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones] out of bounds and then [receiver Rashard Higgins] gets grabbed, so there’s two PIs in one play. They didn’t call it, but we shouldn’t have even been in that position.” On one hand, it’s easy to see why Mayfield is upset. Their final attempt to win the game came down...
    Myles Garrett knows his Cleveland Browns teammate A.J. Green got screwed over by the refs. While it will go down as a five-point road loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett said the pass interference call on cornerback A.J. Green was atrocious. Then again, so was the Big 12 pillow fight of a defensive effort by the Browns in the final frame. Cleveland allowed 26 points to Justin Herbert and the Chargers in the fourth quarter to lose 47-42 to fall to 3-2 on the season. Very rarely can anyone say one blown call ruined a game, but Green getting a pass interference call on a fourth-and-4 defending wide receiver Mike Williams was that.

    The NFL officials owe the Cleveland Browns an apology after this awful pass interference call. In a tight ballgame between the Cleveland Browns and the Los Angeles Chargers, the officials decided to make the game about themselves with one of the most egregious pass interference calls you will ever see. On a fourth-and-4, Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert heaved it in wide receiver Mike Williams’ direction. Browns cornerback A.J. Green was being held by Williams on the contested catch. However, the referees decided Green was at fault here. This botch-job of an officiating blunder gave the Bolts a new set of downs. It resulted in a Chargers touchdown only a few plays later. If anything, Williams should have been flagged on this play for offensive pass interference here. This was called defensive pass-interference on the #Browns.

This week, it happened again. On the final play of the Browns-Vikings game, with Cleveland leading 14-7, Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins threw the ball to the end zone on a play that started 32 yards from the end zone. Browns defensive back Greedy Williams mugged Vikings receiver Adam Thielen in the end zone, keeping him from making a player on the ball. Watch the video embedded in this link. Clearly, the Browns player has Thielen wrapped up and prevented from getting to the ball. No flag was thrown.

    Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has talk with official Mandatory Credit: Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports Taunting makes a brief appearance, a classic roughing the passer and the Steelers’ special teams got screwed out of a blocked field goal for a 10-point swing. Just another week of bad calls in the NFL. And here we actually thought taunting was over and done with. While the league seemed to make a point of eliminating those calls to a certain extent, not all officials have followed through. Surprisingly enough, Week 4 wasn’t marred by the same standard of terrible calls we’ve grown accustomed to. Of course, this doesn’t mean it was completely pure, or rid of officials unnecessarily injecting themselves into the end of football games. Look no further than the honorable mention for this week: Brady vs Belichick. While the Buccaneers did, eventually, come away with the victory, that wasn’t until AFTER officials made two questionable calls on the Patriots final drive — the first being a pass interference against Richard Sherman, and the second being an obvious false start on New...

The NFL also has benefited from the fact that Sunday’s game between the Chargers and Chiefs didn’t unfold under the lights. As noted by former NFL referee and Sunday Night Football rules analyst Terry McAulay, the Hail Mary attempt by Kansas City resulted in multiple instances of uncalled pass interference. Tight end Travis Kelce was wiped out. A bear hug applied to receiver Tyreek Hill kept him from having a shot at making the catch. Tony Romo of CBS downplayed the situation. “Everyone getting tackled,” he said over the replay, laughing. “They don’t even call these. The reality is you almost can’t.” You can. And, when appropriate, it’s called. The fact that the game landed in the cluster of 1:00 p.m. ET kickoffs allowed the NFL to avoid the...

Bridget Moynahan Confirms ‘SATC’ Revival Return This hamsters cryptocurrency portfolio is beating the market © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Pass interference is rarely called on Hail Mary passes. But it’s supposed to be, and it should have been on the Chiefs’ Hail Mary pass on the last play of Sunday’s loss to the Chargers. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes heaved the ball toward the end zone, where both Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce were in position to make a play for it. Chargers cornerback Tevaughn Campbell bear-hugged Hill, while Alohi Gilman grabbed Kelce and knocked him to the ground. Both players easily could have been flagged for pass interference, which would have given the Chiefs one more play to try to score a touchdown from the 1-yard line. Former NFL referee Terry McAulay, who now serves as an analyst for NBC Sports, said the Chargers absolutely should have been flagged. “There is no scenario where this is not a foul for defensive pass interference,” McAulay wrote....
    Kansas City Chiefs fans are convinced the Los Angeles Chargers got away with pass interference on Patrick Mahomes’ final heave to the end zone. The Chargers went toe to toe with the defending AFC champions, turning over Mahomes on two separate occasions, while Justin Herbert threw for four touchdowns of his own. Not only did Herbert out-duel Mahomes, the Chargers’ defense was also able to stand tall when called upon. But did they have some help from the officials? Chiefs fans complained for a last-second pass interference call on the Chargers, as there was plenty of contact in the end zone on Mahomes’ Hail Mary.

    Tom Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a vintage game-winning drive against the Dallas Cowboys, which ended in a field goal that gave the team the 31-29 win at the end. There was one play on the final drive that caught the eye of NFL fans tuning in for the game. Brady found receiver Chris Godwin for a 24-yard gain that set up the game-winning field goal. However, it appeared Godwin may have gotten away with an offensive pass interference (OPI) call.

    College football pass interference rules are different than the NFL. Here’s the big difference in the college football pass interference rule and the NFL. Every year, football fans get confused by the difference in pass interference rulings in both the NFL and the NCAA. It is quite the stark difference, and we have you covered.What is the college football pass interference rule?Here is how the NCAA 2021 rulebook officially defines the defensive pass interference rule: Defensive pass interference is contact beyond the neutral zone by a Team B player whose intent to impede an eligible opponent is obvious and could prevent the opponent the opportunity of receiving a catchable forward pass. When in question, a legal forward pass is catchable. Defensive pass interference occurs only after a legal forward pass is thrown. As for the penalty itself, there is a maximum penalty of 15-yards enforced in college football, regardless of where the interference occurred. However, if the foul took place closer to the line of scrimmage, the on-field officials will enforce it at the spot of the foul. That is...
    Flags and timeouts tell the story of the first half of Super Bowl 55. Reid has been known for questionable timeout management throughout his NFL career, and his one fatal flaw was none more apparent than entering the end of the first half: With just over a minute left in the half, Reid used the remainder of the Chiefs timeouts, presumably for a chance to get the ball back and give Mahomes & Co. a chance to cut into the 14-6 lead the Bucs boosted up. It was pretty soon after that Mike Evans drew (use that term loosely) a questionable pass interference call on a ball that seemed to be pretty well out of the reach of the Bucs wide receiver, putting Tampa Bay in prime scoring position.  MORE: Chiefs’ penalties negate key interception Here’s a look at the call: Some speculated that it was a bit out of the reach of Evans.

In Green Bay’s 31-26 loss, King was beat by Tampa Bay receivers, used as a surfboard on a highlight-reel run and flagged for pass interference.

Things got worse later in the first half for King when Bucs running back Leonard Fournette met him near the goal line. Fournette blasted King with his shoulder, then rode him into the end zone to give Tampa Bay the lead. Just before halftime, King watched Scotty Miller sprint right past him for yet another touchdown.

    The Packers sideline was furious about an incredibly late pass interference call in the NFC Championship Game. Throughout the NFC Championship Game, the lead officials were personifying the mantra of “letting the players play”. Yet, when it mattered most with the Packers needing a stop to ensure Aaron Rodgers got one more chance to snag of victory from the jaws of defeat, the refs were not as generous. Packers defensive back Kevin King was called for a controversial call after what can only be described as a dubious series of events from the entire team — including head coach Matt LaFleur.

Dan Bailey missed two field goals and an extra point, and the Minnesota defense started crack after holding Tom Brady down for most of the first half.

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin cornerback Caesar Williams questioned pass interference calls made during last weekend’s loss to Northwestern and said the penalties won’t cause the Badgers to play any less aggressively the rest of the season. The Badgers were called for pass interference four times Saturday in Northwestern’s 17-7 victory. Two of the penalties came on the game’s opening drive, which ended with a Northwestern touchdown. “At times I felt like the ref maybe had purple underneath their jerseys, I mean under their white-and-black shirts,” Williams said Tuesday. Northwestern climbed from 19th to 11th in the AP Top 25 after the win while Wisconsin (2-1) tumbled from 10th to 18th. Northwestern (4-1) also took command of the Big Ten West Division race while dealing a blow to the Badgers’ chances of reaching the conference championship game for a second straight season. Williams had an interception nullified in the second quarter when he was called for pass interference. He said defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard wasn’t coaching the secondary any differently due to the penalties and said “he doesn’t see them...

    Big Ten officiating came in for heavy criticism Friday night after Purdue lost a go-ahead touchdown in the final minute of the fourth quarter to an offensive pass interference penalty. The consensus was the side judge who threw the flag (and whose name was omitted from Minnesota’s official box score) made a horrendous call. Tight end Payne Durham was called for pushing off before he caught what would have been a scoring pass to give the Boilermakers (2-2) the lead with 52 seconds remaining. Purdue quarterback Jack Plummer threw an interception on the next play. Minnesota (2-3) then ran out the clock for a 34-31 victory. “I didn’t like it all,” Purdue coach Jeff Brohm said during his postgame Zoom call with reporters.

There was no stopping Dalvin Cook on Sunday as the 25-year-old running back rolled the Vikings’ NFC North Rival for a resounding 226 total yards and four touchdowns in a 28-22 win. Cook taking over the game has resulted in the Packers getting slammed by Green Bay media the past two days in a win that has been described as “embarrassing” and “lifeless.” Quarterback Aaron Rodgers took the opportunity to save face by claiming that the game officials tilted the game in the Vikings favor on a crucial call in the fourth quarter.

With 28 seconds remaining in the game, the Giants attempted a two-point conversion to tie the matchup at 25-25.

    Losing games comes naturally for the Giants and it does not help them at all when they get a tough call in the closing seconds. With 28 seconds remaining in Monday night’s 25-23 loss to the Buccaneers, the Giants tried to pull even on a two-point conversion try. Daniel Jones’s pass to Dion Lewis was broken up by cornerback Antoine Winfield, who clearly made contact with Lewis before the ball got to the receiver. Nathan Jones, the field judge, threw his flag for pass interference. After an officials huddle, referee Brad Rogers announced there was no penalty on the play. “I thought Nate made the right call when he threw the flag,’’ Giants head coach Joe Judge said. “I’m not sure why it got picked up. We had a pretty good view. I thought Nate made the right call the first time. Normally your first instinct is right. That’s all I’m going to say about the officiating. “We got to put ourselves in position where we can have success and not bring a third party into the factor. It’s tough...

Daniel Jones had found Golden Tate with a 19-yard pass to bring the Giants within 25-23 with 28 seconds left. A two-point conversion stood between Big Blue and a tie score with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. © Provided by Touchdown Wire Dion Lewis was the target. The Monday Night Football booth drilled home that it should have been pitch-and-catch. Jones was late with the release and Antoine Winfield Jr. was flying toward the Giants’ running back and the ball. Winfield hits Lewis and separates him from the ball. At some point, a penalty flag appeared … late. Did he get there too early? Was it DPI? What would the officials do? After a conference, heaven forbid an instant decision, the officials ruled there was no foul on the play and the Giants suffered another brutal loss. What do you think? Antoine...
    The Steelers can’t catch a break against the Ravens Jimmy Smith is evidently allowed to claw, scratch and hold opposing wide receivers as long as he pleads withe the officiating not to make the call against him. Among the many things we’ve learned from the Ravens impressive performance against the Steelers so far on Sunday, it’s that Baltimore’s physicality is often elusive. https://twitter.com/ThatBlitzGuy/status/1322990911895281671 Smith was grabbing Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson on a third-and-long, and Pittsburgh should’ve been rewarded with an obvious pass interference to give them a first down. Instead, Jordan Barry was forced to punt.Pittsburgh would make up for the bad call shortly thereafterAlex Hightower would pick off Lamar Jackson just a few plays later, changing the moods of Steelers fans across the country. Pittsburgh would then cash in on the turnover with an Eric Ebron touchdown catch. Officiating across the NFL has been incredibly inconsistent in 2020, and the Steelers have found this out firsthand on Sunday.

    Andy Dalton threw an interception after the refs appeared to miss an obvious pass interference call. The Dallas Cowboys are getting no breaks in 2020. Dak Prescott is out, the offensive line is in shambles, and the defense appears to be historically bad. Andy Dalton is trying to steady the ship Monday night and is doing so on a night when Ezekiel Elliott opened the game with two fumbles. Dalton got the offense into a tiny bit of a rhythm early in the third quarter, only for that to be stopped suddenly with an interception. However, it appeared obvious the Arizona Cardinals got away with pass interference. Everyone in the stadium and at home, aside from the referees themselves, could see that. “clean play” pic.twitter.com/c1NND2B34i — Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball) October 20, 2020 Cowboys getting no luck in another painful gameSo CeeDee Lamb got tackled by Dre Kirkpatrick, who went on to intercept the pass.

    Eagles fans on Twitter are frequently an unhappy bunch. On a pass interference call against Darius Slay on Sunday, they might’ve had a case. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger attempted a pass down the right sideline to James Washington in the first quarter Sunday. Slay was playing press coverage on Washington, and the pair battled down the field. About 15 yards down the field, Slay briefly put his arms on Washington’s left shoulder. That drew an official’s flag for defensive pass interference, a spot foul that went for 21 yards for the Steelers. MORE: NFL’s pass interference replay rules, explained Slay’s penalty appeared a bit soft regardless of where the football was thrown, but Roethlisberger’s throw also sailed out of bounds and probably had a case to be uncatchable, too. Pittsburgh concluded the drive with a Chase Claypool rushing touchdown that put the Steelers up 7-0 on the Eagles.  A three-time Pro Bowler, Slay joined the Eagles in the offseason after playing the first seven seasons of his NFL career with the Detroit Lions.

Rams, of all teams, complain that a pass interference call cost them game against Bills The Los Angeles Rams were displeased with a defensive pass interference call on Sunday. The New Orleans Saints will do a double take when they hear that one. The Rams were on the receiving end of what should be considered the worst officiating error in NFL history, a non-call on an obvious pass interference against the Saints in an NFC championship game. Without that mistake, the Rams don’t go to the Super Bowl a couple seasons ago. The call was so bad, the NFL instituted a new rule that teams could challenge pass interference, and ditched that rule after a year. Let’s keep that in mind as the Rams air their grievances over a pass interference that was called on Sunday, and cost them what would have...
    Shirley Bannister, mother of South Carolina teacher who died of Covid-19, dies from it weeks later Chain restaurants in bad financial shape Did Packers get away with pass interference for go-ahead TD against Saints? The New Orleans Saints are no strangers to pass interference controversy. Were they on the wrong end of yet another call on Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers? With the game tied at 20-20 late in the third quarter, the Packers faced a third-and-two play from the Saints 18-yard line. Aaron Rodgers faked a handoff, rolled left and land launched a sideline pass to tight end Marcedes Lewis, who was draped by Saints safety Malcom Jenkins. Lewis separated from Jenkins, leapt and adjusted midair to make a circus catch before falling backward into the end zone for a touchdown to take a 27-20 lead. © Provided by Yahoo! Sports Was this pass interference? (AP Photo/Butch Dill) The play drew an immediate call of offensive pass interference from NBC’s Chris Collinsworth, arguing that Lewis pushed off. Jenkins appeared to concur. As did NBC rules analyst...
    The Los Angeles Rams fell just short of a monster comeback against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon. After the Rams scored 29 straight points to overcome a 28-3 deficit, a fourth-down pass interference call gave the Bills new life late. Josh Allen’s touchdown pass to Tyler Kroft with 15 seconds left allowed Buffalo to escape with a 35-32 win in Orchard Park. On a fourth-and-8 at the Rams’ 13, Rams corner Darious Williams was called for a questionable pass-interference penalty on Bills receiver Gabriel Davis. Allen’s pass was incomplete but the flag gave the Bills a first down at the Rams’ 3, and Allen promptly put the Bills ahead. Stefon Diggs caught a 4-yard touchdown pass from Allen with 8:05 remaining in the third quarter to give Buffalo a 25-point cushion. That was the last Buffalo touchdown for quite some time as the Rams rallied with four straight touchdowns to take the lead with 4:30 remaining. That was an absolutely ridiculous pass interference call in the Bills-Rams game. I guess this sort of makes up for the brutal no-call...
    Perhaps there are some who long for the days when offensive and defensive pass interference were fouls that were subject to the NFL’s replay review system. Some, as they say, just like to watch the world burn. As the 2020 NFL season progresses, don’t bother to scream at your TV for your favorite team’s coach to throw his challenge flag, or for the game officials to head to the instant replay monitor, when you see what you think is a missed pass interference call. These penalties are no longer reviewable in the NFL. DeCOURCY: How the NFL failed on PI replay review The NFL pass interference replay review saga was a disastrous, one-year experiment born from the infamous missed call in the 2019 NFC championship game. Such an embarrassing officiating mistake put both external and internal pressure on the league to try to avoid similar egregious missed calls in the future, and the easy (albeit misguided) solution was to make the fouls reviewable. Some say the NFL’s pass interference replay review tryout in 2019 did not work because it was doomed from the...

    The NFL clearly feels that Michael Gallup was in the wrong Sunday night. NFL official Tony Corrente defended the offensive pass interference penalty called on Gallup in the closing stages of Sunday night’s Cowboys-Rams game, leaving no gray area in Gallup’s offense. MORE: What to know about Dak Prescott’s contract situation “I can tell you it was clear and obvious on the field, of a hand into an opposing player,” Corrente said. “A full arm extension created that separation. In all situations that would be called. We’re not going to allow that at any point during the game.” Corrente would go on to say that the penalty was “clear and obvious” and wouldn’t put any onus on Jalen Ramsey’s contact with Gallup. The call wasn’t inconsequential: The 47-yard pass would have put the Cowboys in field-goal range to potential tie the game. Instead, the Cowboys would end up turning the ball over on downs and losing 20-17 to Los Angeles. The penalty in question: Really didn’t like this OPI call on Michael Gallup. He doesn’t extend his arms. Both...

The Cowboys lost 20-17 and were particularly hurt by a penalty call on Michael Gallup in the final minute. The call took away a 47-yard gain that would have put Dallas in good position to tie the game at minimum. The call was considered controversial because it was hard to see what Gallup did wrong (video here). Even NBC’s announcing team disagreed with the call. McCarthy on Monday talked about the play. “It made me sick when I watched the TV copy. I thought Michael...
    The Dallas Cowboys’ late comeback attempt against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night during their first game of the season was thwarted by an offensive pass interference call. Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup had the penalty called on him while he was jostling for position with Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Gallup caught the ball, which would have set Dallas up with great field position to either tie or win the game in the closing seconds. RAMS OPEN SOFI STADIUM IN STYLE WITH 20-17 WIN OVER COWBOYS Instead, the penalty was called, sparking an outcry among fans. Referee Tony Corrente defended the decision to throw the flag on the play. “I can tell you it was clear and obvious on the field, of a hand into the opposing player,” Corrente said. “A full arm extension that created separation. In all situations that would be called. We're not going to allow that at any time of the game.” Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy took issue with the timing of the call, according to ESPN.

Offensive pass interference and the Bengals lose when Randy Bullock injures himself on a game-tying field goal attempt. Then, on “Sunday Night Football,” Jalen Ramsey’s theatrics get the same call on Michael Gallup after a 47-yard catch late in the Rams’ win over the Cowboys.

He went for it on fourth-and-3 with 12 minutes left, passing up a chip-shot for Greg Zuerlein. “Clearly we were in field goal range and it was a 3-point game,” McCarthy said. “The conservative play there is to kick the field goal. “But I felt really good about...
