Pass interference non-call robs Cardinals of extra play against Bucs; NFL fails again with PI review

The NFL made clear through nine weeks of the 2019 NFL season it would use its newfound power to overturn pass interference calls or non-calls via replay review only in egregious scenarios that resemble the infamous error in last year's NFC title game. The missed pass interference on the last play of the Buccaneers' 30-27 win over the Cardinals on Sunday was not quite Saints-Rams bad, but it was egregious in its own right. With 10 seconds to play and down three points on his own 38-yard line, Arizona quarterback Kyler Murray launched a Hail Mary-esque pass to Pharoh Cooper, who was waiting near Tampa's 20-yard line. The receiver, though, didn't have much of a chance to catch the pass thanks to Bucs corner Jamel Dean's early arrival with his defense.
