Frazier: NFL called to talk about officiating
The NFL has contacted the Minnesota Vikings about some
questioned calls by the officials in Sunday’s game at
Coach Leslie Frazier said Monday he received an unsolicited
phone call from the league about some of the rulings Sunday, when
the Vikings lost 29-26.
Frazier declined to specify whether the NFL apologized for
mistakes by referee Peter Morelli’s crew, but he said ”the fact
that they called should give you an indication of how they felt
about” the game.
A first-quarter fumble by Toby Gerhart, when his knee appeared
to touch the snow-covered field before the ball came loose, was
upheld by replay review. The Ravens scored a touchdown four plays
The Vikings were also upset by two pass interference calls that
aided each of Baltimore’s fourth-quarter scoring drives.
