The NFL acknowledged a number of questionable calls that went against the Jacksonville Jaguars during their Week 1 loss to the Green Bay Packers, league sources told ESPN.
Of the 16 calls that the league recognized as going against the Jaguars, a key one was a missed defensive holding by Packers defensive back Micah Hyde against wide receiver Rashad Greene that would have given Jacksonville a first-and-goal from the Green Bay 9-yard line with under a minute left and a chance to win the game, the sources said.
The Jaguars instead failed on the ensuing fourth-and-1 and lost 27-23.
The missed calls became a topic of discussion at an internal Jaguars meeting, sources said, with team officials believing that the referees missed at least four pass interference calls committed on wide receiver Allen Robinson, including potential penalties by Damarious Randall and Sam Shields.
Seeing that that's how the game is being called, I've got to adjust my physicality to the game." This week the NFL sent out a memo to all 32 teams, asking them to include healthy food options in the officials' locker room.
