Who’s on AP’s naughty list this season? Baltimore Ravens fans and the game officials, judging by the running back’s tweets yesterday after the 29-26 loss.
The Vikings were this close to beating the defending Super Bowl champs on their home field. Peterson, who left in the second quarter with a foot injury, was not pleased with two calls in particular: a first quarter Toby Gerhart fumble (which was upheld after review) and more importantly, a late pass interference call on linebacker Chad Greenway that nullified an interception in the final minute of the game. QB Joe Flacco went on to hit Marlon Brown for the game-winning touchdown with four seconds left.
Oh, and the fans were apparently “throwing snowballs the entire fourth quarter, like kids,” Peterson said. “(Baltimore) has the worst fans in the NFL.” SMH, indeed.
Wow talking about bad officiating & the worst fan base I’ve ever experience! They threw snow balls the entire 4q like lil kids. Smh
