New Video Shows Panthers Got Cheated Out Of Win vs Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys defeated the Carolina Panthers 36-28 on Sunday.

Unfortunately, the win did not come without controversy.

Late in the first quarter, Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz caught a pass near the 40-yard line and attempted to take it downfield. Before he could make any progress, he was tackled by Panthers safety Jeremy Chinn – fumbling in the process.

Carolina subsequently recovered the ball.

Or so it seemed.

How is that not a fumble? After the fact, fans were understandably miffed.

Instead of recording a turnover, Dallas was re-gifted possession. The Cowboys would then go on to score a touchdown on an 18-yard pass from Dak Prescott to tight end Blake Jarwin – completely altering the momentum of the game.

This obviously isn’t the first example of terrible NFL officiating in recent weeks. Last Sunday the Detroit Lions were pretty blatantly cheated out of a win versus the Baltimore Ravens. One week earlier, controversy surrounded the conclusion of the Kansas City Chiefs’ defeat to the LA Chargers. And in Week 1 a ref seemingly got busted on a hot mic literally making up a call.

There’s a reason why there’s so little faith in the referees that some folks legitimately felt like they saw Sean Payton pay off a ref mid-game. That’s what happens when the integrity of a sport is suddenly thrown into question.

At some point, the league is going to have to intervene – because the poor officiating is really starting to get out of hand.
