The red flag on Jason Kelce proved to be costly!

During the game on Monday night, the Eagles faced a setback when Jason Kelce was penalized for a false start. This penalty happened in the red zone, preventing them from attempting a play called the “tush push.” Fans were not happy with the officials’ decision. The penalty was called just as the Eagles were setting up for a third-and-1 play, with officials believing Kelce moved the football before the snap.

Later, multiple reports confirmed that the referees made the right call. However, many fans on social media disagreed, finding the false start confusing and expressing their displeasure, with some even calling it a phantom penalty.
