Heading into their Sunday night game for Week 6, the NY Giants were in for a tough matchup against Buffalo and Bills Mafia at Orchard Park. The Giants kept things tight and even had a chance to win it on the final play of the game. Darren Waller the hero?
Unfortunately, the veteran tight end wasn't able to come down with the grab, but come on, defensive pass interference or holding at a minimum HAD to be called on this play. Cornerback Taron Johnson was tugging at Waller's jersey and prevented him from going after the ball. There's no way the game should have ended like this:
Giants fans are furious that pass interference was not called on the final play of the game
After the Giants were given life when pass interference was called in the end zone on the initial final play, New York had one more chance to pull off the upset of the year with the ball being spotted at the one. There was no miracle ending and NY is now 1-5 on the season. Big Blue supporters are furious with the refs for this blown call. There are no excuses for this.
After time expired, NBC showed the play again in slow motion and it looked like Johnson grabbed Waller's jersey. This had many fans frustrated that the refs might have blown that call and truly cost the Giants a chance at a win. Waller took the high road and said he needed to make this play, but you can't blame him for not coming down with the ball - this is called PI 99 percent of the time.
These are the kinds of calls that can make or break a season for a team. NY was on the cusp of recording the biggest upset of the season and capturing its second win of the campaign, which would have given them a boatload of confidence as they get into a much easier part of their schedule. Thanks to the refs, a dream ending in Buffalo was wiped away.
