No one really expected anything from the game between the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles, but the officials certainly delivered.
The Eagles attempted a field goal towards the end of the first quarter and Caleb Sturgis seemed to have put it wide of the goalposts. However, one of the officials didn't see it that way.
Take a look at this image:
Yes, that really is one of the officials saying that the kick corrently went wide, and the one on the left is saying that it was good.
A top notch reminder that it seems that the refs also need some game time to really get into the groove of things, not just the players. If that play was actually important and not just a field goal in the first quarter of the first game of the season - we could've seen the Fail Mary part two.
And you thought Premier League referees were bad.
