NFL referee Jerome Boger was involved in a bit of controversy on Sunday. Late in the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons, quarterback Tom Brady was sacked on a critical 3rd-down play.

That sack stopped a Tampa Bay drive and was going to get the Falcons one final shot to score and win the game. However, Boger threw a flag on the hit.

Boger’s call? Roughing the passer on what appeared to be a clean wrap-up tackle on Brady.

Here’s what Boger said led to his call:

“What I had was a defender grabbed the quarterback while he was still in the pocket and unnecessarily throwing him to the ground,” Boger explained per Josh Kendall with The Athletic. “That is what I was making my decision based upon.”

After the game, Brady was asked about the penalty but would only say he “doesn’t throw the flags.” He’s certainly not going to be sorry that a call helped his team get out of the weekend with a win.

It will be interesting to see if the NFL has anything to say on the matter down the road.
