During the NFL's first game covered by replacement referees, Hakeem Nicks didn't look where he was going when head ref Jim Core was announcing a penalty. Nicks, who had four catches for 38 yards, also ran over one referee.

The most memorable part is Core saying, "OW!" after the bump. You're a referee in the big leagues now and were let out of middle school for this? Ouch.

The bump definitely did not help the New York Giants, who lost 24-17 to the Dallas Cowboys.
