Think the refs missed a roughing the passer call late in the Eagles' loss to the Giants?
You're not alone.
Complete coverage of the Philadelphia Eagles and their NFL rivals from NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Redskins defensive tackle Chris Baker tweeted out his criticism yesterday after Jonathan Casillas made contact with Carson Wentz’s helmet on a crucial 3rd-and-10 on the final drive of the 28-23 Eagles loss.
Referees caused the Eagles to possibly loose thought any contact to the QB head is roughing the passer 🤔🤔🤔— Chris Baker (@cbaker92redskin) November 6, 2016
Players make a mistake we get fined refs make a mistake you get a letter saying they sorry they missed a call smh— Chris Baker (@cbaker92redskin) November 6, 2016
Had the call been made, the Eagles would have been given half the distance to the goal and had a first down on the Giants' 8-yard line. Instead, they lost the ball, and the game, on downs the very next play.
So, if you're looking for someone else to blame for this loss, Eagles fans have a friend in an NFC rival who is pointing his finger at the refs.
