The National Football League loves its bad officials so much, they sent them to Mexico to screw things up internationally. The folks in pinstripes missed another huge call on Monday Night Football when Houston Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins made a spectacular play down the sidelines for a 60-yard touchdown pass from Brock Osweiler.
There was just one problem. Officials said Hopkins stepped out of bounds at the 36. They said that Hopkins only earned 24 yards on this play. They were wrong.
Making a mess of America’s most popular sport on national television isn’t exactly anything new for the National Football League and its part-time gaggle of officials. But this wasn’t even close. Hopkins got close to the sideline about five steps before the ref blew the play dead.
Also I love the fake sincerity of the tweet from the NFL. A 24-yard gain! It should have been a 60-yard touchdown but whatever! I honestly have no idea what the officials were looking at here. But that’s nothing new when it comes to the NFL.
