Eight most embarrassing blunders from NFL Week 16

8Another horrible week from the zebras

Poor officiating was a storyline in at least three of Week 16’s biggest games. While the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Houston Texans anyway, officials missed a blatant facemask by Jadeveon Clowney¬†against Nick Foles.

In the New Orleans Saints victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Joe Haden was called for an egregious pass interference against Alvin Kamara, which set up New Orleans’ first score.

In their Sunday night win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the Seattle Seahawks had a drive extended when Doug Baldwin drew a holding foul, despite falling completely on his own out of a spin move.

Sunday was rough on the referees. We’ve said that far too often this year. And as bad as the backlash is now, wait to see what happens if the problem isn’t fixed by the time the playoffs begin. We have less than two weeks and very little reason for optimism.
