What a week in football! The NFL Playoffs started this past week with a bang and kept on delivering, starting with the AFC Divisional Game featuring the New England Patriots and the Tennessee Titans. So much happened in this game and if you hate the Pats, you probably hate them even more after this. Brady and the Patriots came out and did exactly what they promised and more demolishing the Titans 35-14 but the real attention of the night was on the refs.
Social Media exploded during the Playoff game, after the numerous calls and penalties that all seemed to work in favor of the Patriots. Like, clock-work, it set off a resurgence of hate by pretty much every fan outside of Patriot Nation. Officiating in sports across the board has been highly criticized in recent weeks and remains a constant topic.
Though they were the favored team by every media outlet and even though they delivered, did the officiating keep Tommy Boy and the Pats from proving that their return to the AFC Championships was deserved? Find out my thoughts in this edition of Shanda Sounds Off!
