NFL Fans Outraged Over Referee Calls during Final Drive Green Bay Packers vs Kansas City Chiefs

This may have been the worst referee show we’ve seen in the NFL in some time.

The Green Bay Packers bested the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday 27-19, dealing yet another blow to the defending Super Bowl champions. However, the Chiefs final drive was marred with officiating mistakes on both sides of the ball, impacting both Kansas City and Green Bay in a frustrating sequence of events.

First, Patrick Mahomes was the beneficiary of a ticky tack personal foul call while running the ball out of bounds. Jonathan Owens delivered a big hit on Mahomes, but was in bounds while doing so, which should have made this play legal. And yet, the Packers were fouled on the play, moving the Chiefs up 15 yards.

Then, a few plays later, the umpires took way too long getting a call right involving Rashee Rice, who was down before fumbling the ball in a crucial sequence. But all of that was forgotten about after Carrington Valentine committed the most obvious pass interference of all time — which would have put the Chiefs inside the 10-yard line — yet wasn’t flagged for the play.

And finally, to cap things off, the referees turned the other way on Mahomes’ Hail Mary attempt to Travis Kelce, as the tight end was interfered with on his way up to make a play on the ball.

Overall, it wasn’t a great night for the officials out in Green Bay and NFL fans let their thoughts be heard on Twitter after the game.
