On a third down play at the start of the fourth quarter, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was hit by 49ers linebacker Nick Moody and safety Antoine Bethea. Referred Ed Hochuli threw a flag...

Pereira: Why Rey Maualuga was penalized for taunting Johnny Manziel

Well, we knew this was coming. If Johnny Manziel flopped in his debut, his haters were going to hate. And that's exactly what happened. Manziel was tormented by the Bengals defense, and after several sacks, they taunted him. Rey Maualuga was one of those very happy Bengals defenders, but he drew a 15-yard taunting penalty. Mike Pereira explains why in the video above.

NFL Referees Fist Bump After C.J. Anderson Touchdown

This is certainly the first time I’ve ever seen this and it’s pretty suspect. Either they were fist bumping because of fantasy points, they’re Broncos fans, or they had money on the game. None of which are okay. Will be interesting to see if the NFL looks into this. Update: Mike Pereira is not amused […] The post NFL Referees Fist Bump After C.J. Anderson Touchdown appeared...

Mike Pereira, Former VP Of NFL Officiating: Jameis Winston Should’ve Been Ejected For Contact With Ref

Jameis Winston made contact with an official during today’s Florida State-Boston College game. In the third quarter of the contest, Winston, appearing to want to get a play off before the Golden Eagles’ defense was set, attempted to shove a referee out of his way.  Winston was not flagged for the act and the announcers for ABC’s telecast of the game made light of the contact...

Oh, the humanity: Penalty prevents Saints from win in regulation (VIDEO)

For a few short seconds, the Superdome was wild with glee. And then it all ended. The New Orleans Saints and San Francisco were tied with seconds left in the fourth quarter and it seemed overtime was inevitable. However, the Saints had the ball and took one last shot at the end zone: A miracle! Drew Brees completed a Hail Mary to Jimmy Graham for the win! 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh...

How a missed FG return was almost disaster for Rams

The end of the half in the 49ers/Rams game was certainly an odd one. San Francisco missed a 55-yard field goal attempt as time expired, and the Rams put Tavon Austin in the end zone to return the kick if it came up short. It did, and disaster almost struck. The refs ruled that Austin got tackled but the ball had been outside of the end zone when he was contacted, so the fact that...

Starting 11: Bad Bo Wallace Edition

The best thing about the college football playoff is this -- your team is no longer eliminated by a single loss. So while Ole Miss fans were understandably crushed by the awful game management of Bo Wallace and Hugh Freeze, it wasn't a season-ending loss. (I'm not letting Hugh Freeze off the hook here. He sent his unreliable quarterback back out onto the field to run a play before...

For all intents and purposes, it ended with a safety that gave the Steelers a 44-34 lead, one of the strangest plays...
