Yeah and the game should’ve been closer at halftime, but the only reason it wasn’t is cause the refs were trying to screw us over again!! Ceedee Lamb was interfered with and it was plain as day, and you could see the defender hugging Ceedee and turning him around and everything, and the ref was standing right there looking right at them, but don’t throw the flag!! These refs sure know how to ruin a game!!
