  1. Looked like a missed helmet to helmet hit on Garoppolo on the imcomplete third down throw on the San Francisco drive prior to the go ahead KC Touchdown.

  2. The call on George Kittle for OPI was in the words of Marv Levy – over-officious!

  3. The missed delay of game penalty happened because the referees are set up for failure in that regard. They can’t watch the players AND the clock at the same time, so delay of games are inconsistently called: sometimes they’re called 1 second after, sometimes 2… sometimes they’re called with one second ON the clock. The NFL just needs to set up some kind of vibrator they wear when it runs down to zero so they can feel it.

  4. I entirely disagree on that the call on Kittle was over officious. As a former DB, I can tell you that there is no way to cover a guy if he cam use his arm to stop you from closing. The harder you try to close in on him, the more you push him away from you creating the separation needs. It doesn’t look like major pass interference, just like holding a guy’s hand down low doesn’t look like much, but both are subtle pass interference plays that need to be called.
