Bradberry’s Jersey Grab
The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Eagles in an instant classic in 2023. Super Bowl LVII brought the NFL’s two best teams together in a Clash of the Titans. Patrick Mahomes dueled with Jalen Hurts for the MVP award as the game edged toward overtime. But then the referees ruined everything with one of the most controversial calls ever.
They cited Philadelphia cornerback James Bradberry for holding Chiefs receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster’s jersey. Many viewers, including Fox commentator Greg Olsen, thought it was a bit ticky tacky for that moment of such a big game. It also ended the game as a contest and made the ending anticlimactic. Bradberry admitted that he made a mistake and was hoping the referees would miss it, but it didn’t make fans feel better (via Bleacher Report).
