NFL fans upset as Dolphins flagged for roughing passer in Justin Herbert shot
NFL fans erupted in rage Sunday night during the third quarter of the Los Angeles Chargers and Miami Dolphins Week 14 game.
The play in question occurred in the third quarter. Justin Herbert backed up to pass 3rd-and-9 from the team’s own 18-yard line and appeared to be sacked by Jaelen Phillips. Los Angeles was about to put its punting unit on the field when officials threw a flag on the play.

Phillips was called out for roughing up the passer. It appeared that the linebacker put his body weight on Herbert as he tackled him to the ground, causing the flag to come out.
Fans watching the game were angry with the game.
