The refs were terrible, and that head ref leads the worst officiating crew in the NFL. I was horrified when I saw him on the screen to start the game. I couldn't fathom how he actually made it to the Super Bowl.
Anyway, here is something no one is taking into account.
It's only a penalty if its called. The refs are a part of the game, getting away with as much as you can with the refs is a part of trying to win a football game. The Ravens obviously did an excellent job of this, and won because of it. If the refs don't call it, it's a credit to the players for anticipating that.
The refs are a part of the game and if the're bad, then you should play them for all they're worth. The Ravens did that and won the game because of it.
