Ranchers Raiders punishments disappoint Micah Parsons, Jerry Jones: 'Ought to play football, not tag'

Thanksgiving at AT&T Stadium transformed into clothing day. 

Banners spilled onto the turf constant for right around four hours as the Cowboys facilitated the Raiders. The directing group drove by arbitrator Shawn Hochuli, child of Ed, created 28 acknowledged punishments — 14 for each group — for 276 absolute yards (166 against Dallas). The calls went from clear bogus beginnings to an exclusive foul on Raiders community Andre James for a head bounce. Dallas cautious back Anthony Brown was hailed multiple times for elapse impedance, with the last one setting up Las Vegas to win 36-33 in extra time. 

One of the more inquisitive calls was roughing the passer on Cowboys freshman linebacker Micah Parsons in the second from last quarter. He tapped a falling Raiders QB Derek Carr on the head protector after Carr tossed a pass to Hunter Renfrow. Carr's head then, at that point, connected with Parsons' knee. 

Parsons represented a great deal of players and fans with his evaluation of the play and the group's banner cheerful nature. 

"We ought to play football, not tag," Parsons said. "I'm not here to help anyone and play label like he's my closest companion. I have something important to take care of and I see [Carr is] outside the pocket, so I'm pursuing the quarterback." 

"Toward the day's end, football is a forceful game and you will assault the ball and you will play through the ball and you will play the safeguard," Parsons said later. "Toward the day's end, it will go to a point on schedule . . . when are you really going to allow us to play?" 

It was a facetious inquiry, however Parsons wouldn't get an agreeable reply assuming that he made an immediate question to the association office. The NFL is determined to keeping quarterbacks — and afterward every other person on the field — sound. That implies considers like the roughing punishment. 

A baffled Cowboys proprietor/GM Jerry Jones sure wished the zebras had let them play more, particularly concerning the PI punishments. 

"This isn't an analysis of the standard. It is an analysis of the attentiveness of how you use them in play," Jones said, per Jon Machota of The Athletic. 

"Oakland (sic) exploited the circumstance," Jones said. "I call it 'hurl ball.' Right method for playing it in a game like this [is] simply toss it out there and get a punishment." 

Cattle rustlers mentor Mike McCarthy, who's an enthusiast of not being fined by the association, kept it quick and painless when he was gotten some information about the flagfest. 

"28 punishments — I don't have a clue what the heck you need me to say," he said. "Compose what you need; I'm totally supportive of it." 

It wouldn't astonish Parsons, Jones or McCarthy to discover that Hochuli's group tosses the most banners in the association. As indicated by supportive of football-reference.com's details, the group had called 135 punishments in its past 10 games this season, with 66 against host groups and 69 against visiting groups. After Thursday, the absolute was up to 163, which, as indicated by nflpenalties.com's aggregates, put it No. 1 among directing teams with the rest of Week 12 to play. The three-banner contrast among home and street didn't change. 

And keeping in mind that the authorities remained exactly as expected Thursday, they didn't verge on making association history. The NFL record for punishments by the two groups is 37, set by the Browns (21) and Bears (16) on Nov. 25, 1951. The most since the 1970 AFL-NFL consolidation is 35, by the extension Buccaneers (20) and Seahawks (15) on Oct. 17, 1976.
