NFL Admits Tripping Penalties Called On Cowboys During Loss To Patriots Shouldn’t Have Been Called

There is a stigma around the league that especially in New England, the officials favor the Patriots, and Sunday afternoon did not help dispel that conspiracy theory.

Down late and looking to making a push, the Cowboys were seemingly halted on two separate occasions courtesy of two costly tripping penalties, a penalty rarely ever called.

It was apparent based on the replays that in both instances, no flag should have been thrown, escpially in the moment they occurred.

The Cowboys filed both calls to the league’s front office for review after the loss, and not surprisingly, theNFL acknowledged to the club neither was valid, and neither should’ve been called.
