Los Angeles Rams decry costly pass interference call

Los Angeles Rams decry costly pass interference call that led to Buffalo Bills' go-ahead TD

 

play

 

The Los Angeles Rams were one play away from completing a historic come-from-behind victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in Orchard Park, New York. Instead, despite overcoming a 25-point deficit, the Rams suffered their first loss of the season 35-32 after a controversial, fourth-down pass interference penalty resulted in the Bills' go-ahead touchdown.

"It was the wrong call," Rams safety John Johnson III said after the game. "We can't narrow it down to that one play, but I don't think it was a PI."

Facing fourth-and-8 from the Rams 13-yard line, with 25 seconds remaining and Los Angeles ahead 32-28, Bills quarterback Josh Allen attempted a pass to receiver Gabriel Davis, who was playing in place of John Brown after the receiver injured his calf earlier in the game. The pass fell incomplete, but cornerback Darious Williams drew a penalty for pass interference, giving the Bills a fresh set of downs and moving them to the 3-yard line. On the ensuing play, Allen completed a 3-yard pass to tight end Tyler Kroft for a touchdown to ensure the Bills a three-point victory with only 10 seconds remaining in the game.

"No, obviously not," Rams receiver Robert Woods said when asked if it appeared from the sideline that Williams committed the penalty. "Being out there, he's playing defensive back, he's playing hands-on, he's checking him, and as he gets into his route, the receiver initiates the contact and the quarterback is literally just throwing the ball in the area, and it wasn't even a catchable ball. But, obviously, they made the call, it is what it is, you got to keep playing and finish the game."

 

Rams quarterback Jared Goff paused for a prolonged six seconds before responding when asked about the officials' call.

"There's a million calls in the game, and it's unfortunate that one like that can go make it, essentially, if they don't call it, the game is over," said Goff, who passed for 321 yards and two touchdowns, with an interception. "But there's calls that went our way that game and there's calls that went their way that game, and unfortunately, that one was at the end of the game like that."

The Rams trailed 28-3 with 8:05 remaining in the third quarter before they mounted a comeback effort that would have qualified as the greatest in franchise history if they had made the fourth-down stop to secure a victory.

After a slow start, the Rams' defense forced two turnovers in the second half, while Goff led four consecutive touchdown drives.

Williams, who had a critical interception in a Week 2 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, finished with two tackles.

"I hate it for our guys that it ended up the way that it did and came down to some of the things that it came down to," Rams coach Sean McVay said. "But we're a tough group, we're a mentally tough group, we're going to use this as an opportunity to respond."

Gabriel Davis was being held.  If he wasn't being held he would have caught the TD; this is pass interference.

Please pass this information on to these whiners.

I am so happy to educate the Rams on basic football.  I dare them to debate me.  Sadly, they cannot.

Oh yes - BTW, McDermott wouldn't stand for such bitching and whining. 

Our team would have said, 'We shouldn't have let them gain sixteen yards on 3rd and 25.'

That is why McVey, for all of his brilliance, is simply a soulless tactician.  McDermott is a football coach.

the contact was not initiated by the wr, it was initiated by the db and held throughout the route

the ball was only uncatchable bc the db didnt let the wr make his cut to get to the ball

completely legit call - unlike the phantom interception when the reciever came down with the ball and the db just grabbed onto it. how the hell they reviewed dthat in slowmo and still called it a pick is mind boggling

How about the 3rd and 21 they let us convert earlier in the drive?

McDermott would go apeshit on our players if they whined like that.

To be honest, I think they're right.

It wasn't PI.

It was Illegal Contact after 5 yards.

Either way, 1st down.

"if they don't call it, the game is over" - Goff

True ... but the game was still not over and your defense still had a chance to stop us.

And they didn't.

I though it was illegal contact too. But even Pereira said it was correctly ruled a PI. Either way a non call was the least expected outcome IMO. Davis was clearly held. 

Rams can go suck a bag of dicks. Their comeback does not happen if nor for the gifted int. Karma they call it. At least Goff had the decency to admit it some calls went their way.

Ball was already out while the illegal contact was happening because half our line decided to be turnstiles on a 4th down play, consequently that makes it a PI
