Were the Referees cheating to help Tom Brady and the Buccaneers last night?
Dallas Cowboys fans should happy because it was a hell of a fight last night, but did the Buccaneers get some help? I hate blaming the referees, but last night there were a few plays that make you wonder. During the second quarter, Bucs center Ryan Jensen was called for taunting while Carlos Watkins was called for unnecessary roughness. The two penalties actually off-set one another. The Buccaneers would end up going on to score that drive, but look at this audio.
Referee Terry Killens left his microphone on and says “Let’s Just say” then he killed his mic. Was he making up something? It was pretty weak to be honest too, but it definitely raises some eyebrows.
Then if the call was not enough, many feel on the final drive Chris Godwin pushed off to make the huge play that put the Buccaneers in field goal range. I do think he pushed a bit but was not like he shoved the guy on the ground.
While we may not agree, Mike Periera believes it should have been offensive pass interference.
Well, it was a fun game to watch. However it was pretty sloppy. Five turnovers, 24 total penalties, and a potential offensive pass interference penalty which in my mind could have gone either way. Back to work for me. I’ll be in the studios tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday.

Were the Cowboys screwed? I guess you can say maybe, but at the end of the day they still could have won.
