The Minnesota Vikings are fighting for their playoff lives and they felt that they didn’t get any help from the officials Thursday night against the Cowboys.
Quarterback Sam Bradford was hit on the helmet during a two-point conversion at the end of the game in a 17-15 loss and the non-call seemed to be one of a few that the Vikings feel didn’t go their way.
“At the end of the day, that’s a game-changing play and you’ve got to make those calls,” defensive end Brian Robison said, via ESPN.
“At the end of the game, Bradford gets hit in the face. That’s an opportunity for us to score and tie the ballgame, but it doesn’t get called.”
“I don’t care,” he said. “You can look at play in and play out. The problem is the costly penalties that don’t get called. When you look at the play that Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott scrambled [for 14 yards on a 3rd-and-11], there should have been penalties called on that play and they don’t.
“It gets to a point where it’s too frustrating. I don’t know. I’m probably going to get fined for this, I understand that, but somebody has got to step up and say something.”
