Owner Terry Pegula On Board the Bills Were Screwed by the Overturn of the Call on Kelvin Benjamin

Bills owner Terry Pegula was like most of America on Sunday, stunned as everyone else that the NFL’s catch rule screwed the Bills in their loss to the Patriots.

NFL Senior VP of Officiating Al Riveron overruled the call of a Kelvin Benjamin touchdown reception, wiping out a potential Buffalo halftime lead in the eventual New England win.

The rule was that Benjamin didn’t get two feet down before securing the catch, even though watching the replay over and over it sure looked like he got his feet down.

Pegula felt like the rest of America who felt the Bills got screwed.

“They obviously weren’t looking at the same television the rest of the country was looking at, were they?” Pegula said, via ESPN’s Mike Rodak.

“You know what, you can probably find somebody in this country that disagrees [with the catch], and I know one guy would be Al Riveron sitting in New York City. But everybody I talked to — and they’re not Bills fans and they’re not necessarily anti-Patriots — they’re all baffled by that call, which just wasn’t consistent with what replay [should be].”

There’s no doubt that the Pats have gotten two hometown calls the last two weeks, securing wins over the Steelers and Bills. The NFL HAS to do something about the rule in the offseason.
