Tough to defend this pass interference non-call in Chiefs-Raiders game

The Oakland Raiders ran a fleaflicker where Marshawn Lynch flipped the ball back to Derek Carr who then threw it 38 yards down the field to Amari Cooper who caught it for a touchdown.


Watch what Cooper does on the play. He pushes the Chiefs defensive back, Terrance Mitchell, to the ground.

The ref near the goal line may not have seen that because he didn’t have a good view. Shouldn’t there be someone else who can see that? Mitchell is turning around so he’s already a little off balance but when he runs into Cooper you see Cooper’s arms coming around him. Was that a push? Should that have been offensive pass interference?

Local and national reporters seemed to agree it should have been called.

It looked like the Chiefs defense was expecting offensive pass interference but they didn’t get it.

The replays went on to show that he did catch it and he got his foot in bounds. But how do you defend not making that call which resulted directly in points? It’s a big error, it looks like.


Was that a bad non-call?
