Report: NFL will review Belichick's behavior

According to a report from NFL Network's Steve Wyche, the NFL will review the incident after Sunday night's game in which Patriots coach Bill Belichick grabbed an official.

Belichick apparently wanted an explanation after the Ravens' game-ending field goal that appeared to go directly over the upright or to see if it was reviewable. He pursued an official and pulled on his arm when the ref did not stop.

The NFL warned teams last week following a couple of incidents in which coaches berated replacement officials.

Belichick said in his postgame press conference that he does not expect a fine. He said of the officials: "I'm not going to comment on that. You saw the game. What did we have, 30 penalties called in the game? … 

"It's our job to just go out there and control what we can control. That's what we're going to try to work on. You can't control anything else. You'd have to talk to those guys. Go talk to the...

Esiason on D&C: NFL officiating 'a debacle'

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly Patriots Monday appearance with Dennis & Callahan to talk about the Pats' 31-30 loss to the Ravens and other news from around the NFL.

The replacement officials once again are in the spotlight following some questionable decisions Sunday in a number of games, including the Patriots' setback.

"I spoke to two coaches yesterday, independent of one another, whose teams won a game yesterday. … And both of these coaches said to me flat-out that the officiating is an abomination and that it's ruining the sport," Esiason said. "And these are guys whose teams actually won. So, I'm thinking that the guys that lost probably feel even more passionate about it.

"I did last Monday night's game in Atlanta. It had the feel that the game was out of control, that they didn't know what they were doing. Watching last night, the Ravens and the Patriots, whether or not the field...

Wilfork: Won't 'pick a fight' with officials

BALTIMORE -- Patriots defensive captain Vince Wilfork said he was surprised that the game officials ran off the field so quickly after Justin Tucker's game-winning 27-yard field goal as time expired. 

"You have to. In game like this, you have to, but instead, they ran off the field. It is what it is," Wilfork said. "I'm not going to sit here and pick a fight with those guys. They have a job to do, we have a job to do. The only thing we can do is play better and try not to be in those situations no more."

Wilfork said he felt badly for the offense after the defense failed to protect a 30-21 lead with just over six minutes left in the fourth quarter. 

"We didn't do what we needed to do to help our offense tonight," Wilfork said. "It sucks because coming into the game we had a pretty good idea of how we wanted to play it. First quarter it showed, but it seemed like after that we couldn't get off the...

Pollard: We'll see Patriots again

BALTIMORE -- Ravens defensive back Bernard Pollard was happy with the win over the Patriots Sunday night, but said he anticipates seeing New England again later this season.

"We know we're probably going to see them down the road," Pollard said after the game. "With [Tom Brady], you have to get pressure on that man's face. If you let him sit back there, he'll eat you alive, and I think you guys saw that. Allowing him to sit back with guys running around him, that guy can thread the needle."

Buoyed by Brady, the Patriots held a 30-21 lead early in the fourth quarter, but a 10-0 run down the stretch -- capped off by a last-second field goal by Justin Tucker -- gave Baltimore a 31-30 win. Pollard, who gained a measure of infamy in New England after he delivered a hit that resulted in a season-ending injury to Brady in the 2008 opener and a tackle on Rob Gronkowski in last year's AFC title game that left the...

Spikes unloads on officials

BALTIMORE -- In the moments after New England's heartbreaking 31-30 loss to the Ravens Sunday night at M&T Bank Stadium, Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes tweeted his frustration with the replacement officials. 

Can someone please tell these [expletive] zebras foot locker called and they’re needed Back at work !!!! #BreakingPoint

Later, Spikes tweeted, I thought after Noah’s Ark & the great flood, God said he wouldn’t punish us again..well how do u explain what happen 2nite ?! Ijs #PoWwWwW

The Patriots were called for 10 penalties for 83 yards, including a pass interference on Devin McCourty that set up the game-winning field goal by Justin Tucker. The field goal appeared to go directly over the right upright but no review was made by the on-field officials. Instead, they ran off the field, with Patriots coach Bill Belichick trying in vain to chase them down. 

The Ravens were...
