Cleveland Browns cornerback A.J. Green was the victim of an atrocious pass interference call during a 47-42 loss to the Chargers.
It looked like Los Angeles was going to be stopped on the drive, but instead got bailed out when Green was flagged for PI on Mike Williams. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Not only was it not defensive PI, it could have easily been offensive PI. Watch a video of the play below.

It’s important to note that the Chargers scored a touchdown after that pass interference call. So, while it probably wasn’t the only call that helped them win the game, it played a huge role.
Bad calls happen in sports. It’s just what happens when you have humans involved in the process. However, there’s no excuse for a call like this one.
Pass Interference. Browns.

If a ref can’t tell the difference between what is pass interference and what isn’t, then they shouldn’t be reffing.

The NFL needs to find a way to stop horrible calls like this one from happening. There’s simply no excuse.
