PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Eagles and Pete Morelli do not get along.
In Thursday night’s huge 28-23 Eagles win over the Panthers, Philadelphia was penalized 10 times for 126 yards. Plenty of those calls were, at best, debatable.
On the flip side, Carolina was penalized just once for one year, in a very close and physical game.
It was the first time in NFL history, one team had over 120 penalty yards, while their opponent had less than 10, according to Dave Zangaro.
What’s more concerning is this, per Zangaro: The Eagles have been penalized 40 times for 396 yards over their last four games with Morelli’s crew, while their opponents have been penalized just eight times for 74 yards.
Eagles fans were naturally displeased with the officiating, voicing their frustration on Twitter.
