The Baltimore Ravens absolutely dominated the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon, winning 41-7, in one of the most-impressive performances of the NFL's 2019 regular season.

The contest did include one extremely puzzling call by the referees that hurt the Texans in a major way.

Houston went deep to DeAndre Hopkins early in the game on a 4th down attempt. The pass was incomplete, though it looked like Hopkins was interfered with. Houston challenged the no-call, but replay review upheld the decision.

We're not exactly sure why.

Hopkins, who had 7 catches for 80 yards in the game, took to Twitter following the game. "As a leader in the NFL, we need someone new in New York deciding calls," he tweeted.

The NFL implemented the pass interference challenge rule following the 2018 season. It has not gone well. It seems like the majority of calls - whether they are right or wrong - are just automatically upheld by replay review.

The league needs to take another look at this process in the offseason.
