#Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said he thought this was “probably not the right call.” Right or wrong, it did have a huge impact on game. pic.twitter.com/QS4VBIw40W— Pete Sweeney (@pgsween) November 6, 2017
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is not one to call out referees. It is typically not his style.
So, whenever he does say something regarding a referee’s decision, I take special notice. Reid made a point of it to talk about the third-quarter pass interference call on Steve Nelson during the opening statement of his Monday morning press conference.
“[There was] one call in particular that was probably not the right call,” Reid said. “We’re all going to have our good days and bad days but the one with Nelson, I thought Nelson had the right of way on that and was called for pass interference. It ended up being a big play on that drive and didn’t allow us to get off the field and get back on and go when we had a little bit of momentum.”
Regardless of how you feel about the play, Reid is right in saying that with no call, that’s a Chiefs stop, and the momentum stays with the Chiefs.
And maybe this entire Monday feeling headed into the bye would have been different.
