I’m not a big blame the referees guys but man alive did the referees put on a great display as to why everyone thinks they’re the most incompetent group of dudes going.
The 4th down where DeVante Parker was clearly straddled by the defender to the aforementioned fumble was gross. But the coup d’etat was when Nik Needham got run into by Titan’s receiver, then that receiver grabbed Needham’s jersey and yanked him only to the ground only to be thought of as a player that was illegally interfered with.
I asked myself if I took crazy pills in the morning. Turns out that I didn’t take any crazy pills, which seems like a mistake in retrospect, and the refs are just terrible at their job.
I realize their job isn’t an easy one but you can’t sit there with a straight face or any kind of face and tell me that Needham did anything that could be remotely constituted as illegal.
As I said, that call and the collection of calls didn’t make the Dolphins lose. They lost 34-3. But that drive did end in a touchdown and I for one hated every moment of it.
