Commanders Screwed By Uncalled Pass Interference on Darnay Holmes


The New York Giants beat the Washington Commanders on Sunday Night Football, 20-12. The Commanders got very, very close to the end zone on their final drive before turning the ball over on downs. On fourth and goal Taylor Heinicke threw the ball to Curtis Samuel in the end zone and the pass was broken up by Darnay Holmes.

It wouldn't be an NFL weekend without a horrible non-call that upsets everyone.
