Week 7 recap: While often times we say teams got robbed in a loss, this one is indisputable. According to Jim Irsay, the NFL admitted to making two incorrect penalties at the end of the Week 7 game. Had the first one not been called, the game would have ended on a recovered strip sack, resulting in a win. But that wasn’t the case, and the Colts lost at home in the final seconds.
