Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa expressed his disappointment with the refereeing during his team’s 28-14 win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday night, calling the match officials “blind” due to a missed holding call late in the final quarter of the game that resulted in him being hit with what could have been a game-changing penalty.

With just four minutes left on the clock, Bosa threw an incomplete pass; a moment in which he believed that a linesman had been attempting to block him on the play. If Bosa’s claim is correct, then this would be a punishable offense.

Following the Chargers’ win, Bosa expressed his frustration on the matter: “But I mean refs are blind, simple. I’m sorry but you’re blind, like open your eyes and do your job it’s so bad it’s unbelievable.”

While Bosa admitted that he should not have lost his temper at the decision, he still insisted that the officials have should have done a better job, going on to state that the same issues have reoccured over the years.

Fortunately for Bosa’s Chargers, this controversy did not affect their ability to come away with the win, as Derwin James intercepted Carr’s pass to seal the victory just two plays later.
