The Washington Commanders got screwed by the refs pretty badly at the end of their game vs the Giants on Sunday.
Late in the fourth quarter, refs missed an obvious pass interference on the Giants on a crucial fourth down play.

Two players earlier, the Washington Commanders scored on the goal in but it was called back due to an illegal formation penalty on wide receiver Terry McLaurin, who apparently was not lined up properly.
Before the play, McLaurin asked the ref if he was lined properly, and while it appeared that the ref answered him, he still threw the flag on McLaurin.
If you look closely, the following exchange happened:
– Ref points and tells McLaurin to move up
– McLaurin acknowledges, moves up a little, and does a final check
– Ref responds with one word and then starts moving his hand to his flag, pulling immediately on hike

McLaurin confirmed that the ref had told him he was good before throwing a flag on him.
Terry McLaurin: “I felt like I was on the ball the entire time. … I checked to see if I was good the first time and he was like, ‘Move up a little bit.’ So when I moved up, I checked to see if I was good, and he said I was good.’“ pic.twitter.com/AEhmGL53xp
