Raiders-Tigers umpires won’t play again this year’s playoffs

US time on Sunday, according to ESPN reporters, the Raiders-Tigers game on duty referees will not participate in the playoffs again. There were a lot of problems with their penalties in the game, and one whistle was very controversial.

The NFL grades the officiating team after each game, and referee Jerome Boger and the rest of the team don’t fare too well. They finally decided that the whistle sounded after Bengals player Tyler Boyd received the touchdown, but video replays showed that wasn’t the case.

Boyd’s touchdown gave the Tigers a 20-6 lead in the first half. The line referee blew the whistle after thinking that quarterback Joe Burrow was out of bounds before the pass. In the end, the Bengals won the game 26-19, their first playoff victory in 31 years.

Walt Anderson, the NFL’s senior vice president of officiating, said after the game that Boger and the coaching staff “did not think the whistle sounded before the wide receiver had finished receiving the ball.”
