Video: Referees makes blatant no-call after huge hit on Jordan Reed
In a tweet by Mark Bullock of The Athletic, he stated that Redskins tight end Jordan Reed had every reason to get upset after game officials missed a blatant illegal hit on him by Dallas.
Jordan Reed has every right to be furious, clear hit to the helmet and it goes uncalled. Has to be frustrating, especially for a guy with a history of concussions. pic.twitter.com/v6EBmS2qNW

The play happened in the fourth quarter. With time running out, quarterback Colt McCoy went to Reed on a 3rd and 3 play. But the pass was broken by safety Xavier Woods.
It appeared to be a flaggable hit by Woods, whose helmet collided with Reed’s. But the referees did not pull the flag from their pockets.
As a result, the Redskins had to settle for a field goal that narrowed the gap to eight. It would be the last time they would score in the game.
The Redskins were trailing the entire game with McCoy at but they got their rhythm going in the fourth quarter. This quashed chance derailed their chances of mounting a possible comeback.
The Redskins currently drop to 6-5 to remain the top team in the NFC East. They had just recently lost to the Houston Texans last Sunday in a game that saw starting quarterback Alex Smith suffered a gruesome leg injury.
Dallas also has an identical record as a result of their win at 6-5. They’ve narrowed the gap after winning three straight and are looking to take over the lead in their division in the coming weeks.
