Las Vegas Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers

Chargers screwed over on worst pass interference call of the season

The Los Angeles Chargers were screwed by the refs calling a horrendous pass interference penalty to set up a Raiders touchdown.

There was some real home cooking going on at the end of the first half between the Chargers and the Raiders.

With under a minute to go before halftime, Las Vegas took a 17-14 lead with the help of an incredible dubious pass interference call.

On second-and-10 from the Chargers 42, Derek Carr missed his receiver deep in the endzone by a mile. Zay Jones sold the slightest of contact and drew a flag.

The Raiders benefitted from a bogus pass interference on the Chargers

It was an Oscar-worthy dive on a clearly uncatchable ball, yet it took gave the Raiders 41 yards to the goal line and set up Josh Jacobs for an easy, one-yard score.

No one on NFL Twitter could quite figure out how the refs made the call they did considering just how out of range the pass was.

Others pointed out the dive Jones pulled looked like what soccer players get criticized for doing.

The Chargers and Raiders are fighting for their playoff lives, so it matters that the officials get the calls right in this game even more than usual.

That’s the kind of call that could have a huge impact on the entire NFL playoff bracket if that’s the ultimate difference in the game.
