That is literally ref ball right there. They just took a win away from the Rams.

Man, that has to be so hard to swallow.

100% agree. That DPI call was absolutely a ref looking for something that wasn't there.

That said.... that 3rd and 22 that the Rams gave up earlier in the drive was ghastly. There were at least four Rams there, he caught the ball short of the sticks.... it was bad. That was a huge play.

Yes, but it’s not called if Williams doesn’t throw up his arms and look guilty as hell. Sometimes you make your own luck.
If they can’t diagnose the actual play in real time and are relying on any part on reactions like that, then the whole rule needs to be thrown out and rewritten.

I mean if they blow it again, you basically have to fire Dan Quinn, right? What else can you do

I know most of you were probably watching the Pats game then, but that DPI in Buffalo was absolutely a makeup call for the BS that the refs gifted to the Rams earlier in the game.

So when do the Bills get their first test? I don't believe in them yet, in the same way, I do not believe in the Rams.

Play bad teams and win, play an iffy team, and try very hard to blow it. I think this is a team that we won't know what they are till the playoffs.
I definitely think they are a playoff team, but not a good playoff team...
