It’s getting exhausting emerging from each weekend with our choice of questionable and downright bad refereeing decisions to analyze, but it feels unavoidable these days. I don’t know if it’s confirmation bias or if it’s real, but NFL officiating feels as bad this season as it’s ever been. Last night’s 20-13 Patriots win over Buffalo provided a pair of doozies.
The first was an inadvertent whistle on a third-quarter pass to Danny Amendola. Line judge Gary Arthur apparently lost track of the football, and blew his whistle while Tom Brady’s pass was still in the air. (Fuck-up No. 1.)
