Does anyone even know what constitutes a penalty in the NFL anymore? New Orleans Saints cornerback Bradley Roby did not make helmet contact with Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate.
Tom Brady hit Brate for a nine-yard gain on 3rd and 10 from the Tampa Bay 36-yard line. The drive likely would've been over unless the Bucs were feeling frisky and wanted to go for it. Roby was called for a 15-yard personal foul. Brady later hit Breshad Perriman for a 28-yard TD to put Tampa up 10-3 in New Orleans.
Any critics who believe the officials are out to make Brady's life as easy as possible will have plenty of fodder to fuel their rage after this call, especially if the Bucs go on to win. It'll blow your mind to find out that Jameis Winston, playing through four fractures in his back, threw two interceptions on the ensuing possessions, with one resulting in a pick-six to make the score 20-3. The Saints wound up losing 20-10 and look to be in serious trouble with Winston as banged-up as he is.
