If you hate muscle-bound referees AND the helmet-to-helmet rule, you're about to get a two-fer. Ed Hochuli was banished to Charlotte for the Atlanta-Carolina game today, and didn't waste any time letting Panther fans know of his budding reputation. Turns out that Hochuli threw a flag on a hit that took away a touchdown.
After Matt Ryan's pass was intercepted by Richard Marshall, Hochuli threw a flag and announced Peppers made a helmet-to-helmet hit on Ryan. It erased the touchdown and gave the Falcons a first down on a drive that ended with a punt.
The Panthers didn't seem to mind, they've wrapped up another win against the Falcons, 24-9. And your last update for your 1 PM games: Jacksonville 30, Houston 27, Final, OT. Steve Slayton finished with 116 all-purpose yards and a TD, but Josh Scobee finished this game with 12 points, including the 37-yard game-winner. I'd like to thank Fred Taylor for personally fucking my fantasy team this week, not that I don't appreciate his 25 yards on 10 carries. Cleveland 20, Cincinnati 12, Final. Romeo Crennel wins! Derek Anderson still played like crap. The Bengals are terrible. In other words, it was a football game played in Ohio. Tennessee 23, Minnesota 17, 4th Quarter. Tampa Bay 23, Green Bay 21, 4th Quarter, 2-minute Warning. NY Jets 48, Arizona 35. Jesus was a little late to this one; there's about 4 minutes left. New Orleans 28, San Francisco 17. About 4 minutes to go. Kansas City 23, Denver 16. 7 minutes left. Hochuli makes another questionable call [NBC Sports]
