Chiefs-Raiders: Twitter reacts to Chris Jones penalty on Monday Night Football

To say the least, there were strong reactions on Twitter to the passer roughing penalty imposed on Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones late in the second quarter of the Monday night football game against the Las Vegas Raiders. On the sidelines, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was clearly angry at the call – but he certainly wasn’t the only one.

In case you missed it, Chiefs defensive tackle Jones appeared to have a strip-sack, forced fumble and fumble recovery on Raiders quarterback Derek Carr with less than two minutes left in the second quarter. . The referee team threw a flag and announced a rude passer call, a 15-yard penalty that gave the Raiders a first down. And then Arrowhead Stadium filled with boos…just like social media.

Here’s a sample of the Twitter reactions we saw while the game was still in progress.

The controversial call came just a day after there was another highly questionable passer call during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons game on Sunday, after Grady Jarrett crossed the line and arrived to Tom Brady for what appeared to be a critical sack. The Bucs ended up winning that game 21-15.
