Los Angeles Chargers pass rusher Joey Bosa ripped NFL referees following the team’s 28-14 win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football.
Bosa was asked about getting hit with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty during the fourth quarter and said, “I didn’t even know they called the penalty on me ‘cause I was fuming. But, I mean, refs are blind. …I’m sorry, but you’re blind. Like open your eyes and do your job. It’s so bad. Unbelievable.”
The penalty was called with 3:56 left in the game. With the Raiders facing first-and-10 at their own 37-yard line, quarterback Derek Carr threw an incomplete pass on the play. But after the unsportsmanlike penalty, the Raiders moved to the Las Vegas 48.
“Fifteen yards, it’s a big deal,’’ Bosa said.
But two play later, Chargers safety Derwin James intercepted Carr to seal the victory.
