How does Steratore rank in terms of frequency of penalties called? Seems like the NFL let Bengals-Steelers game get out of hand last night, so I’m guessing they’ll have an added focus on extra-curriculars?
I am going to be fair and balanced. I give my opinion on every Football Player that deserves to be reprimanded! There are at least 5 Referees in a Football Game. The Referee should watch the Coach on each side of Teams when calling for a stop in play. I blame the Referees for their uneducated response in management of Football Games! I will have my say about Football Games when mistakes are unnecessary!
On Jackson’s overturned TD in the first quarter, does the ball carrier’s contact with the pylon prior to going out of bounds have any baring on the play? Thx.

Gruden was trying to call time out late but the officials are focusing on the snap …he ran to alternate and he does not have authority
It is funny that he would say that, since I’m sure I saw Gruden running down the sideline at an official on the field.
But expecting these part timers to get something as simple as a timeout called? To much to ask.
Huge difference in this game vs. the game last night. By this time in the game last night there were over 25 comments on poor officiating.
This crew has done a very good job.
As far as the pylon…isn’t it the case that the BALL has to hit or go over the pylon? (That is, unless the runner gets into the end zone in bounds.)
I don’t think a runner could score by reaching forward and swiping the pylon with his hand as he’s going out of bounds at the 1, for example.
There were a few bad calls today too. Even Perreria called the crew out a few times.
