Refs are finally explaining why a crucial call in the Chargers-Chiefs game was overturned, and Chargers fans are still not happy with the decision.
During the Thursday night game between the Chargers and Chiefs, Chargers corner Asante Samuel batted the ball to himself and appeared to catch it as it was landing but the interception call was overturned during a replay review.
Chargers fans felt Samuel has both hands underneath the ball and should have been awarded the interception.
Asante Samuel Jr. was ROBBED!!

The refs claim the ball hit the ground while Samuel was going down and that he did not maintain control.
Chargers fans weren’t buying the ref’s explanation and went off on social media.
Translation: Mahomes threw it and we are going to help him out whenever we can. https://t.co/XMLkShLoKd
