Washington gets away with an awful facemask and forces the Eagles to fumble on a missed call

The NFL has an instant restart and still receives false calls regularly.

Some things are revisionable, others are not, and picking and choosing means we make horrible mistakes like Monday night.

The Philadelphia Eagles He had the right to go crazy in the fourth quarter of their lives 32-21 loss Washington leaders. Washington back Jamin Davis The Eagles grabbed the tight end Dallas GoedertMask his face and pull it down. It wasn’t just a penalty, it was blatant. However, the officials did not see this. When Goedert was pulled by his face mask, which everyone could easily see immediately on the restart, he fumbled the ball. Washington recovered.

This was not a judgment call. This is a really bad mistake by the officials.

Explain why this should not be revisionable?

It happened with just over nine minutes remaining and Washington leading 23-21. The Eagles had just selected their quarterback captains Taylor Hynek And he had some momentum. Davis then grabbed Goedert’s face mask and got away with it. Instead of a 15-yard penalty and the Eagles kept the ball, the leaders recovered it. Washington didn’t move it at all, but did get a 55-yard field goal that they shouldn’t have.

Since face mask penalties could not be reviewed, there was nothing that could be done. The NFL has resisted expanding replays, but it might make sense to at least include personal fouls. It would have made a huge difference in a crucial moment on Monday night.

In a fair world, the play could have been reviewed and the correct call made. But the NFL doesn’t allow that, even with the technology to do so.
