PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Two controversial catch plays went against the Eagles on Sunday, once again bringing up what the new ambiguous NFL rules deem a catch.
“I don’t know what a catch is,” Eagles coach Chip Kelly admitted to Angelo Cataldi and the 94WIP Morning Show on Monday.READ MORE: Pete Rose Dismisses Sexual Misconduct Questions At Phillies' Alumni Weekend

During the first play of the game, Riley Cooper’s catch was correctly overruled and called incomplete after a Rex Ryan challenge.

But then in the fourth quarter, Bills corner Leodis McKelvin ripped the ball away from Eagles’ tight end Brent Celek. McKelvin was awarded the interception on the field, but upon seeing the replay, it was evident the ball hit the ground.
However, Ed Hochuli and his officiating crew deemed they did have enough evidence to overturn the potentially game-altering interception.
“I’m just speaking for most coaches,” Kelly said. “We talk in our meetings, I have no idea what is considered a catch or what — I know what I think is considered a catch, but I’m wrong in what I think is considered a catch.”

“I thought that it was a really good football game yesterday,” Kelly said.
