Buffalo Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan Gets Livid at Officials on ‘Monday Night Football’

There have been many dubious, controversial official calls this NFL season and the Nov. 7 “Monday Night Football” game between the Buffalo Bills and the Seattle Seahawks featured no exception.

To close the first half, Seattle defender Richard Sherman ran into the Buffalo kicker Dan Carpenter during his attempt at a field goal.

The referees made the baffling decision not only not calling a fitting roughing-the-kicker penalty against Seattle but requested the alleged-injured Buffalo kicker to leave the field (a rule set to prevent teams to prohibit fake injuries to stop time).

Obviously, this ruling did not sit well for Bills head coach Rex Ryan:

At the start of the second half, after Sherman had caught an interception from Buffalo quarterback Tyrod Taylor, Ryan had some choice words to express to Sherman from the sideline.
