Adrian Peterson is like a ton of Seattle Seahawks fans this week that are extremely upset over the outcome of their Tuesday Night game.
The Seahawks running back took to social media and claimed his team got robbed of a win by the referees.
“Can we please come together and figure out a better solution that’ll hold [NFL refs] more accountable,” said Peterson, who just joined the Seahawks earlier this month.
“These are literally life changing moments that shouldn’t be overlooked. I feel there are certain plays where officials should come together, review, and get the call right.
Especially plays that are being displayed on million dollar Jumbotrons where the entire stadium and every football loving fan across the world can see.
These plays can be simply challengeable plays where you either win or lose and the show continues.
Having these opportunities doesn’t take away from the game. Losing a timeout due to a failed challenge can be detrimental! However, not having that option takes away from the integrity of the game and helps dictate the outcome of games.
I don’t make excuses and I also feel any situation can be overcome, but, opportunities are all you need to create change.
We got robbed of that last night on two critical plays which resulted in a 7 point swing and took away great field position that would’ve given us a chance to put points on the board.
We then have a clear missed PI call that ended our opportunity to right the previous wrong of the officials. In critical moments of the game, they were presented with opportunities that we were not due to plays that should’ve been reviewable.”
Late in the fourth quarter, Russell Wilson threw deep for DeeJay Dallas on fourth-and-6 with Seattle trailing 17-10.
Ernest Jones was in coverage, but clearly failed to get his head around to the football, raking his arm down on Dallas’ to cause the incompletion. No flag was thrown.
That non-call clearly changed the outcome of the game.
The Rams took over and scored three points on the ensuing drive, sealing the 20-10 win.
