The officials had two opportunities to make calls in the closing minutes of Sunday's game that could have drastically changed its outcome.
One was called, and went against the Redskins; the other wasn't.
The first instance occurred with the Texans driving from the Redskins' 37-yard line with just over two minutes to go in regulation, Houston leading 23-21. Deshaun Watson, finding no open receivers, scrambled up the middle for two yards, drawing the two-minute warning and a fourth-and-3. The play also drew a defensive holding penalty against Josh Norman, who was covering DeAndre Hopkins.
"To me, I think that right there lost the game. Because now you're dealing in a situation where you're losing your timeouts and the worst-case scenario for that whole incident. If we don't get that penalty, they're punting the ball to us. So with that being said, now you have a drive downfield and make a field goal or score a touchdown, instead of losing time and your timeouts."
The Redskins were left with 52 seconds to mount a game-winning drive that wouldn't come.
"I don't know if it was interference against Doctson, but you had two guys," Dukes told Moss. "It looked like one of them initiated contact before the ball was even there."
"It was interference, man. C'mon," Moss griped.
"You are a wide receiver," Dukes said with a laugh. "But how do you call one and not the other?"
"Like, when we're in the game and have a chance to really claw our way and make something of it, the ref's not giving it to us. I saw two plays when it could have easily went with us; and then one of them wasn't called at all, the other one was called against us. It's just a shame, man, that we have to be dealt that way."
