SD @ NE - 2nd Half Update
No Pentalties in the 2nd Half. I happen to think Triplette and crew did a good job of keeping the game under control. There was one play when I thought some referee's would have thrown a personal foul call, but Triplette kept the flag in his pocket and simply yelled at the player. This was the play when a Patriots defensive back pushed Philip Rivers to the ground. I happened to think Triplette was right because it looked as if Rivers was doing a little bit of acting like kickers do when they get nudged. Triplette (who earlier did call a "running into the kicker") wasn't falling for that one. Good game for these refs who won't be the topic of any controversies tomorrow which is a good thing for them, and the NFL.
