Texans' DeAndre Hopkins -- We need 'someone new' deciding PI calls

Bye week drops Texans in Week 11 USA TODAY NFL power rankings

The Baltimore Ravens utterly dominated the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon, profitable 41-seven, in a single of the most-impressive performances of the NFL's 2019 frequent time.

Deandre Watson went deep to DeAndre Hopkins early in the game on a 4th down attempt, but it fell incomplete, largely due to Hopkins being grabbed before the ball got there.

Every week, we come up with a different reason why the Ravens might falter.

The league needs to take another look at this process in the offseason. After all, the Texans are a capable team - they were atop the AFC South prior to the game - and have an MVP candidate in quarterback Deshaun Watson.

O'Brien said he even was unsure about what a pass interference was. "It definitely could have been a changing point of the game, a momentum switch".


If that Humphrey play on Hopkins did not show "clear and obvious evidence" then there was no "clear and obvious evidence" that Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman interfered with Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis in last year's NFC Championship game - the game-turning play that led to this new challenge rule being implemented. Houston challenged the no-connect with, however replay critique upheld the choice.

No. 2 New England (-3½) at No. 12 Philadelphia: The first meeting of these teams since the Eagles won the 2018 Super Bowl is also the Patriots' return from their open week following their first loss, to Baltimore.

Then came the mighty New England Patriots, led by Bill Belichick, the greatest defensive game-planner in National Football League history.

I have no idea what pass interference is anymore.

Had the non-call been overturned, the Texans would have had a first-and-goal at the Ravens' 1 in a scoreless game.
