But, in a game where the Browns had plenty of chances to seal up the victory, it is hard to point to this play alone as the reason for a loss. On the other hand, everyone hates to see the referees have such a dramatic impact on the outcome of a game.
So, we will leave it up to you, pass interference or no?
Also, all of you conspiracy theorists feel free to go crazy.
