The NFL needs to do something about the reffing situation because it’s pretty bad week in and week out.

During the Cowboys-Patriots game, refs called two phantom tripping calls against the Cowboys. One of the tripping calls came in the final minutes of the game when the Cowboys were trying to mount a comeback.

Both fans and media were irate with the calls after the game.

On Monday, the NFL informed the Cowboys that the refs made a mistake and should not have called tripping on either play.
