Controversial Jaguars-Patriots Pass Interference Call Questioned by Fans

A flag was thrown at the end of the second half in Sunday’s AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Patriots ended up winning 24-20, with New England going to its 10th Super Bowl.

But with a two-minute drill at the end of halftime, Tom Brady threw a deep pass to wide receiver Brandin Cooks. Jaguars cornerback A.J. Bouye was covering him, drawing a 32-yard pass interference flag.

After the call, CBS commentators Jim Nantz and Tony Romo noted that the PI call against Bouye appeared spurious.

The call ended up getting the Patriots in good field position to score a touchdown before the half ended.

On Twitter, a number of people thought the call against Bouye was questionable.
