  1. Deep pass late in the first half…Eagle receiver was tackled inbounds yet the official signaled for stoppage of the clock (maybe thinking of college rule where clock stops on first down?)…anyway that gave the Eagles extra time.

  2. There was an obvious hold during the long touchdown against the steelers, the bronco was holding the jersey so bad it was stretching away and it was right next to the reciever who had the ball so I’m not sure how the refs missed it, that is why he was able to run down and score the touchdown, had they called it broncos prob don’t score any points on that series and possible totally different outcome in the end. ,

  3. Time wasn’t placed back on the clock after the Steeler challenge from the Decker goal-line reception. DEN tried to run a play–PGH challenged and it was granted but refs never put time back on clock (:44) from play that never happened. Big-time gaffe.

  4. 2 Calls in the Saints vs Redskins that I found questionable I’d like to know how others feel.

    4th and long Saints line up to punt. Punter kicks it off and Redskins players hit him with his leg raised. There was no call. Shouldn’t that have been roughing the kicker.

    And last one saints down 14-20 Redskins 4th and inches. Roman Harper was called for pass interference when he did nothing to turn the guy around. Instead of the Saints getting a turnover on downs they gave the Redskins the ball at the 1 with a first down. Complete swing of momentum on that call
