19. Eagles vs. Seahawks (2020)
There are inexplicable officiating decisions every season but this one is up there with the strangest. Carson Wentz and his Eagles were playing Seattle when the referees decided to make things weird. Jason Kelce sent a snap past Wentz’s head and the QB struggled to get it under control. Meanwhile, Carlos Dunlap chased him back 24 yards and took him down as Wentz threw the ball away (via Sports Illustrated).
It went out of bounds three yards short of scrimmage and was clearly intentional grounding. However, the referees saw it differently and claimed that it did reach the line of scrimmage. They unnecessarily infuriated everybody because it clearly didn’t. There was even an official standing two yards away but somehow they still contrived to get it wrong. It’s just typical of the NFL’s officiating situation today.
