Top 10 Worst Officiating Calls In the NFL

Things that were completely wrong and should have been the other way around.

The Top Ten

1 The Tuck Rule - 2002

To this day I feel bad for the raiders about how they used this rule. - htoutlaws2012

2 The Fail Mary - 2012

The replacement officials costed them the game. It was clearly an interception.

This is what started the whole bandwagon fans jumping shift to seattle. - htoutlaws2012

The replacement officials didn't know the professional rules.

3 Mike Renfro's ''Non-Catch'' - 1980

This guy made an amazing catch and somehow ruled him out of bounds. - htoutlaws2012

4 The Calvin Johnson Catch - 2010

The season opener against Bears and how in the hell is that not a TD. It looked more like a TD than in 5 years later with Golden Tate who looked like he didn't have maintained it properly. - htoutlaws2012

The Dez one had higher stakes though lets be honest.

This was the one that started the rule in the first place however. - htoutlaws2012

On replay, it is a clean catch, period!

5 Golden Tate's ''Fumbledown'' - 2015

Ok did he really maintain the ball I don't even thank so. - htoutlaws2012

6 The Catch II - 1999

So jerry Rice had appearently fumbled, but was ruled incomplete although he looked he pooped it out, and yet they ended up winning with T.O getting the TD. - htoutlaws2012

7 Holy Roller - 1978

It was meant to be Forward pass but wasn't called and the raiders ended up winning the game. - htoutlaws2012

8 Jay Cutler's Non-fumble - 2008

In what way is this an incomplete pass. - htoutlaws2012

9 The Coin Flip - 1998

Game was between the Steelers and the Lions it went into overtime. Bettis calls tails but the ref says heads but doesn't realize it was actually tails. - htoutlaws2012

10 Jesse James Survive The Ground Rule 2017

It was clearly a catch the refs rig everything for the Patriots

The Contenders

11 Dez Bryant's Almost Catch - 2015

Dallas would've beaten Seattle. The question is would they beat New England. They could if their defense plays a great game.

This call really really pisses me off. It was clearly a CATCH!

12 Bottlegate - 2001
13 Sugar Bear Hamilton Roughing Ken Stabler
14 Missed Pass Interference on the Rams - 2019 AFC Championship
