Dallas Cowboys linebacker Leighton Vander Esch was merely attempting to tackle a sliding Marcus Mariota in the team’s game against the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.

Unfortunately, the rookie first-round pick from Boise State fell victim to yet another horrible call from NFL officials. This time, he was called for unnecessary roughness, giving the Titans an automatic first down.

Check it out below.

We’re not really too sure what’s Vander Esch should have done there. He had no opportunity to avoid Mariota as the quarterback slid. Should he attempt to change the space-time continuum?

The Twitter world pretty much agreed that it was a horrible call.

Luckily for the Cowboys, Tennessee missed a field goal later on the drive in an attempt to improve off a 21-14 lead. Either way, it was yet another bad call from the officials in a season that’s been filled with them.
