Picture - Cowboys-Raiders penalties frustrate Micah Parsons, Jerry Jones: 'Should be playing football, not tag'

Thanksgiving at AT&T Stadium turned into laundry day.

Flags spilled onto the turf non-stop for almost four hours as the Cowboys hosted the Raiders. The officiating crew led by referee Shawn Hochuli, son of Ed, produced 28 accepted penalties — 14 for each team — for 276 total yards (166 against Dallas). The calls ranged from obvious false starts to an esoteric foul on Raiders center Andre James for a head bob. Dallas defensive back Anthony Brown was flagged four times for pass interference, with the last one setting up Las Vegas to win 36-33 in overtime.

One of the more curious calls was roughing the passer on Cowboys rookie linebacker Micah Parsons in the third quarter. He tapped a falling Raiders QB Derek Carr on the helmet after Carr threw a pass to Hunter Renfrow. Carr's head then made incidental contact with Parsons' knee.
