Craziness Continued ...
I'll just say it, referee Terry McAulay and his crew suck.
After a 60-yard punt by the Cowboys' Mat McBriar results in a touchback, McAulay announces a 10-yard penalty on Philly. First and 10 from the 10 when we come back, right? The TV timeout is called and ESPN viewers go to commercial.
During the break, however, McAulay announces a second penalty (though no flag was thrown) -- this one on the Cowboys for illegal touching. So it was off-setting penalties, and fourth down repeated.
McBriar's second kick goes 44 yards, resulting in a 6-yard net loss for Dallas.
Just one of those nights, man. One of those nights.-- Richie Whitt
