NFL fans skewer refs for missed penalty after tackle on Bills' Josh Allen


Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen was entrenched in a battle against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday and fans watching the game thought an official missed a blatant penalty during the game.

Allen dropped back to pass on 2nd-and-goal from the Eagles’ three-yard line. Eagles linebacker Haason Reddick was in pursuit and dragged Allen to the ground. The replay showed that Reddick appeared to take Allen down from the back of his jersey. He also ripped the front of Allen’s jersey.

Instead of calling a horse-collar penalty, the officials penalized Allen for intentional grounding as his last-ditch pass attempt didn’t make it to the line of scrimmage.

“The ref is standing right there … and he doesn’t call a horsecollar on Josh Allen????? c’mon son,” SiriusXM Radio host Ashley Nicole Moss wrote.

If you can’t call a horse collar penalty right in front of you on an all-pro QB, one that tore Josh Allen’s jersey—you either have money on the game or you’re incompetent. Fire that ref yesterday!” author Luke Russert added.
