NFL responds to Falcons’ pass interference complaint


Falcons coach Dan Quinn has heard back from the NFL’s head official Dean Blandino about the controversial non-call at the end of the Seattle game.

“I had a good conversation with Dean Blandino,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday. “I’ll keep that conversation private between he and I. But we did talk this week.”

Game officials did not penalize Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman for grabbing wide receiver Julio Jones’ right arm with the ball in the air on what turned out to be the Falcons’ final play. A pass-interference penalty would have given the Falcons the ball near Seattle’s 35-yard line with 1:30 to go and one timeout. The Seahawks took over on downs and ran out the clock on their 26-24 victory.

Quinn reacted angrily to the play on the sideline, national commentators said Sherman should have been penalized and Saints coach Sean Payton said pass interference should be subject to replay reviews.
