Officials give Dallas Cowboys warning, not penalty, for contacting sliding Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen

Recommended Posts

Of course, of course... It's interesting in the video that Garrett says "Keep him in the pocket, he can't beat us from there." LOL. Ok pal.

 

Officials give Dallas Cowboys warning, not penalty, for contacting sliding Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen

 

Where’s the flag?

That was a common question asked on social media early in the Buffalo Bills’ win over the Dallas Cowboys. With the Cowboys leading 7-0, Buffalo was looking to answer with a scoring drive of their own. Facing a 3rd and 12 on their own 28, Allen scrambled for nine yards before sliding. Jaylon Smith made initial contact with Allen, but the linebacker seemed to be attempting to tackle Allen at the start of his slide. Xavier Woods, however, came flying in a bit late with a lowered helmet.

 

Allen immediately pops up looking for a flag, but there is nothing on the field.

Below is video of the play in question.

It’s unknown why the officials decided against throwing a flag on Allen, but they thought the hit was serious enough to give the Cowboys a warning going forward.

The Cowboys released a Thanksgiving game video on YouTube and at the 58 second point of the video, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is shown talking to his defensive players.

“Listen to me. When this guy runs... When this guy runs and goes down late, don’t (expletive) hit him in the head, now. They just warned us”

He goes to a different group of defenders and shares the same message.

“Don’t hit this guy in the head, late, when he runs now. Don’t hit him late. He’s a late slider.”

It’s interesting that the officials felt the need to warn the Cowboys about their hit on Allen, yet did not feel that Woods’ contact warranted a flag.

Here is the video in its entirety.

Later in the video, Garrett is shown telling his players to keep Allen in the pocket stating, “He can’t beat us from in there.”

Garrett, of course, was very wrong about that statement. Allen was calm and cool in the pocket and finished the Thanksgiving Day game completing 79% of his passes.

I'm fine without throwing a flag there, as long as they are consistent.

That video clip was sweet, though. The Cowboys were a beaten team.

Go Bills.

I would have if it wasn't 2 people that hit Josh late.  Jaylon Smith hitting him late I didn't have a problem with, it was too bang bang.  Rodgers gets that call but most QBs wouldn't...however when Xavier Woods hit him after Smith hit him arguably late, all QBs get that call...but Josh didn't there.

That was an awful call.  Dak running to make the first on a 3rd down, Hughes pursuing him from behind I have no idea what they expected him to do.  Just let him continue to run down the field untouched?

Exactly. If they don't throw the flag there then the one on Hughes shouldn't have been thrown either. Can't have it both ways.

I don't think anyone's fine with it. To me it was a clear penalty. We all know if that had been Brady the defender would've gotten thrown out the game and served prison time. 

Then the Hughes thing happened and it only made it worse.
