So the regular refs, including Jeff Triplette, are back and the officiating is still terrible. A brilliant Broncos comeback could have been ruined by a horrible offensive pass interference call against Denver late in the game. This negated a long completion and probably took points away from Denver because i don’t think Decker was down by contact. So that was a touchdown in my book. According tot he professional refs we have back on the field it was something else.
The terrible offensive pass interference call on Decker certainly gave the Chargers the ball back when they didn’t deserve it. Luckily, this call didn’t decide the game, but it could have and it was bad. Can’t the NFL do something to make sure these kinds of mistakes don’t change the outcome of a game?
Jeff Triplette is still employed by the NFL.
But Monday night has another important lesson for Giants fans: Eli Manning is 10 times the QB Phillip Rivers is. That guy was a turnover machine tonight.
