The penalty called on Chase Young has enraged NFL fans.


The Washington Football Team is in a dogfight with the Atlanta Falcons right now. However, a questionable penalty against pass rusher Chase Young isn’t helping them at all. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan rolled out right for a deep pass on a 4th-and-2 in the third quarter. Young, however, swatted Ryan’s arm, brushing against his helmet as he attempted to take him down. Ryan went down to his knees for a sack, but the flag flew in. To the chagrin of almost everyone, the call on the field was ruled “roughing the passer.” Atlanta easily moved down the field for a touchdown after resuming the drive.

A cursory examination of the film reveals that it was at best a shaky call. On Twitter, however, fans and analysts are outraged at how soft the call was.

Chase Young, on the other hand, is a formidable pass rusher. When he hits a quarterback, it usually appears to be a lot worse than it is.

But it’s never fun to see a game’s momentum shift due to a call like this. Regrettably, it may have a significant impact on the game’s outcome. The game is broadcast on FOX.
