Roughing the passer penalty on Ravens helps set up Packers’ touchdown

Ravens fans will not be happy with the officials after a call went against them today against the Packers.

Ravens rookie pass rusher Odafe Oweh gave a slight push to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers after Rodgers threw an incomplete pass, and the officials flagged it for a personal foul. Two plays later, the Packers scored a touchdown.

Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman, calling the play on FOX, mocked the penalty. It looked like a weak call.

But roughing the passer is called inconsistently in the NFL, and today it was the Ravens who paid for that inconsistency.

  1. Again take the points on the opening drive!!

    You kick the FG and you are up 10-7 now not tied.

  2. As a Packers fan, this defense is god awful, they beat no one in the playoffs, they’re just awful they are making a back up quarterback looks like an all-pro.

  3. The roughing the passer call in the SF vs ATL against Arden Key on 3rd down was atrocious. Next play ATL gets a TD.

    Billion dollar league with 10cent officiating, complete joke

  4. Exact same thing happened to Arden Key/Niners.
    This official has single handedly taken so many points off the Niners board and added bogus points to Niners’ opponents in this game and away game in Arizona.

  5. The Ravens are a notorious late hitting team and have been for years .it’s what Harbaugh wants.

  6. As a Bears fan watching Rogers today vs the Ravens makes me realize 2 things:

    1. The Bears have no chances against the Pack until he hangs it up.
    2. I grow more and more amazed at all the Packer fan hate aimed at him given how much he has done for them on the field.

  7. Karen getting calls as only Karen does. He’s the reason these hits on QB’s are so pathetic, because he can’t take a hit, every position in the NFL other than QB has to suffer.

  8. Not much of a push, but the point is there was no reason to push him at all. Chalk it up as taunting if you want to.

  9. Lol acting like it was 4th down and the penalty kept the drive alive. The Packers got called for much less vs the Vikings and I didn’t see that article.

    🤔

  10. Matt Ryan trying to get another cheapie call on the ground there acting like Lebron James after a small boo-boo.

  11. Princess Pinkie Toe has been treated with kid gloves by the league all year. I wonder if Lame has a cause of action since Lame was the anointed MVP and all class amazing fake QB. But no! The league has gone against a life that matters for one with bad facial care and even worse hair care.

  12. Weird how I’m watching this game and the refs are treating the Packers a lot different than my Raiders.

  13. I’m watching this game and Rodgers is making these scrub receivers on his team look good. How is he not the MVP?

    You can’t assume the series would’ve went the same exact way had they went for 3. Pack would’ve had better field position from the kickoff which would’ve probably changed their initial playcalling.

  15. I’m a Packers fan but the refs definitely screwed up on that call. One more argument in the case for full time referees.

  16. Anybody here need a rear-view mirror? Won’t be needing this NFC North one until next year.

  17. Phantom pass interference call on 3rd down in the red zone also led to immediate Packer TD.
    I can understand and tolerate when the part timers miss a violation. But when THEY CALL A PENALTY THAT NEVER HAPPENED????
    Egregious. Unacceptable. Each ref should get maybe 3 before being fired. How about accountability?

    Don’t worry the PI call was worse.

    Yeah….that call was completely bogus

  19. The NFL has now become the WWE, its all about money. I haven’t seen a team that benefits as much from the refs as the Green Bay Packers. Especially the last 3 seasons, it amazes me to see the leagues best teams get beat by terrible teams, but coincidentally always helps the Packers. No body can even touch the Quarterback anymore, all due to Aaron Rodgers getting hurt a couple years back. Nowadays, football is so sad. The Quarterback just sits back there knowing he isn’t going to get hit. Knows if he does the ARod rule will help him out. Today’s defensive players have to be so mad at what this league has become. I really miss the days of old. I cant watch this game anymore!!

    Then don’t. I’m sure you have other things you can complain about.

    Its not just Rodgers. The scheme is equally as impressive.

    To see how wide open guys are on those play fakes.. and to see the way they scheme Adams open, despite all the attention he gets.. Its so much fun to watch.
