Review Confirms Bills Got Robbed By Refs vs Texans
A video review confirms that the Bills got robbed by the refs vs the Texans.
Obviously it is too late to matter at this point, but Buffalo clearly fell victim to a bad no-call that ultimately deciding Saturday’s outing.
Heading into this weekend’s big match-up between the Texans and Bills, both teams were thought to be fairly evenly matched. Buffalo was a superior defensive team, Houston a better offensive group.
Surely enough, after the Texans rallied to overcome a 16-point deficit, overtime was needed to determine a victor.
Unfortunately, in overtime, a very controversial play occurred.
With just under seven minutes remaining in the game and the score tied at 19-19, Houston lined up to snap at the ball on 3-and-18.
On this sequence, the play clock could very clearly be seen going down to 0.

This should have resulted in a penalty, but officials did not call it. Instead, Watson got the ball off and dumped it down to Duke Johnson.
Johnson promptly delivered the yardage necessary to keep the drive alive.
Shortly thereafter Watson magically evaded two tackles and stayed on his feet in a play that has turned him into a legend. Houston would go on to win the game.
While missed calls obviously happen all the time in football, it is still important to acknowledge them.
