Eagles end up on the wrong end of two terrible calls by the refs in Texans game

New, comments

From Nick Foles almost having his head ripped off, to Brandon Graham being called for roughing the passer, the refs continue to be bad.

Another Eagles game, another opportunity for the refs to screw up. And they did, at least twice.

The most glaringly bad, no-call of the day came when Nick Foles almost had his head ripped off by Jadeveon Clowney on a two-point conversion try.

I mean, really though, it’s absolutely insane that none of the refs saw this. What else were they looking at?

Foles gave the ref a fired-up earful after the missed call, and even resulted in an apology and acknowledgement the umpire should have bailed out the QB.

That’s all well and good, but it doesn’t change the fact the Eagles didn’t get the call, or the subsequent yardage. So, thanks for that.

Eagles DE Brandon Graham was also the subject of some BS by the refs, and was called for a pretttty questionable roughing the passer call against Houston QB Deshaun Watson.

This isn’t the first time Philadelphia’s defenders — and others throughout the league — have been unjustly flagged for roughing the passer, and hopefully the league and refs figure out a better way to call it in the offseason.
