Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters left away with a block attempt during a 24-10 triumph over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday evening, yet it was absolutely a flawed call.
Colts quarterback Philip Rivers wasn’t content with the official’s choice to change the decision on the field.
“It’s gotten so, really jacked up of how the catch rule is,” Rivers told reporters after the game. “I mean, nobody that’s played any amount of football or that has been around the game, watched that and thought it was a catch, including the guy who dropped it…But somebody that’s sitting back, watching this, probably hasn’t thrown a football in his life gets to call it.”
Replays indicated that Peters juggled the football and it didn’t seem as though he had total control over it, yet the officials thought there was sufficient to overturn the call. On their resulting offensive possession, the Ravens scored a touchdown and took a 14-10 lead.
It ended up being a tremendous energy move in a game between two of the better teams in the AFC.
