A former NFL referee has admitted that a controversial call during today's major game was the incorrect one.
The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the New Orleans Saints, 31-28, earlier this evening.
There was an extremely controversial call earlier in the contest, when Steelers' defensive back Joe Haden got called for pass interference on this play.

Unsurprisingly, a former veteran NFL referee has admitted that the call was the wrong one.
"Even though Joe Haden did have a hand on the receiver prior to the ball being there, he should not have been penalized for Pass Interference on this play. This contact did not effect the receiver and is not severe enough to warrant a flag," he tweeted.
Steelers fans can take solace in that, at least.
