Tom Brady appears to know the refs messed up during today’s Falcons-Bucs game.
On third down with 3 minutes left in the game and the Falcons down six, Grady Jarrett appeared to sack Tom Brady in a play that would have helped his team get the ball back for a comeback drive. The refs ended up bailing out the Bucs by calling a terrible roughing the passer penalty on Jarrett.

Brady was asked about the play and he responded “I don’t throw the flags” while trying to hold back a smile.

Tom Brady with a thoughtful, detailed explanation on why, in his mind and based on the NFL rulebook, Grady Jarrett's play was indeed roughing the passer. pic.twitter.com/sth2MCxCRu

Falcons fans didn’t appreciate Brady’s smirk while talking about the roughing the passer penalty.
