The Dallas Cowboys lost 20-17 to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night after one of the worst calls in NFL history.
Cowboys receiver Michael Gallup was flagged for offensive pass interference late in the game, and the flag called back a 47-yard gain that put Dallas in range to tie the score. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Of all the bad calls we’ve ever seen, this one is right near the top. Watch this mind-boggling call below.

Folks, there’s simply no excuse for a call that bad. There’s just not. In what fantasyland is that offensive pass interference?
They barely touched each other. If that’s how we’re going to play football, then just take the pads off and put flags on.

That’s not even a tough no-call to make. It’s not interference on either player. They’re just playing football, but it’s damn sure not offensive PI. That much is crystal clear.
I’m not even a Cowboys fan, and I feel bad for them after that joke of a whistle.
Do better, refs. Do much better.
