The worst ‘Unsportsmanlike Penalty’ ever was called yesterday
The Buffalo Bills beat the Denver Broncos 26-16 yesterday in an impressive performance from all facets of the team. The Bills were no doubt the better team on Sunday, but in the final minutes of the fourth quarter, the worst unsportsmanlike penalty I have ever seen was called and potentially cost the Broncos a chance to tie the game up.

How that is a penalty is beyond me–we have seen some horrible calls in the NFL, but this one takes the cake. Even Tyrod himself was shocked it was a penalty…
“Me and Von came out the same year [in the draft] and we’re good friends and we were laughing on the field,’’ Taylor said, via Leo Roth of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. “I honestly didn’t think it was going to be a flag. Like I said, we were laughing (about it). It ended up working in our favor. I guess a bad play by him at the time, pretty sure he wishes he could have that back.’’
The penalty cost the Broncos 15 yards, and the Bills were able to extend their drive for 10 more plays and burn four minutes from the clock, capping the drive with a field goal which pushed their margin to 10.
With the NFL handing out suspensions to players for sometimes meaningless offenses, the time is now to reprimand referees for terrible calls–but then again, would we have any referees left?
