A football player put together a thorough video that depicts the Philadelphia Eagles‘ 15 horrendous missed penalty calls during their Week 7 home victory over the Miami Dolphins.
Yes, there are errors made by the referees and missed penalties in every NFL game. The nature of the business dictates that this won’t alter unless the league implements long-overdue modifications to the officiating system. YouTuber Max Optimized posted a video showing the Eagles, who defeated the Dolphins 31-17 on Sunday Night Football to climb to 6-1 on the season, missing an absurd 15 penalty calls.
This is an all-time record 😳😳😳

The Eagles did gain a great deal from a few puzzling calls or non-calls. This includes Christian Wilkins’ clumsy “Roughing the Passer” infraction for nudge-banging Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts.

With Philadelphia holding a seven-point lead early in the fourth quarter, it also appeared as though Eagles Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay got away with defensive pass interference on Miami running back Raheem Mostert. Miami would have had a first-and-goal opportunity to tie the game close to the goal line if there had been a penalty call, but the officials never raised the flag.
With a rushing touchdown from Kenneth Gainwell, the Eagles effectively ended the game.

Although the Buffalo Bills’ defeat to the New England Patriots guaranteed Mike McDaniel’s team would remain atop the AFC East going into Week 88, the Dolphins’ season ended at 5-2.
