Colts' Chuck Pagano: Interception 'sure looked like' a penalty

Tuesday September 16th, 2014

Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano said a late interception by the Philadelphia Eagles during Monday's game "sure looked like" a penalty, according to Pro Football Talk.

With a 27-20 lead in the fourth quarter, Andrew Luck threw a pass to T.Y. Hilton, which was intercepted by safety Malcolm Jenkins. Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin made contact with Hilton before the interception, but no penalty was called.

Pagano said there should have been a flag thrown against the Eagles.

“I think I had the same view as you did. It sure looked like it on the Jumbotron. We’ll look at the tape,” Pagano said.

The Eagles won the game 30-27 on a game-winning field goal from Cody Parkey. The Colts led 20-6 in the second half but struggled to contain Darren Sproles, who had 152 receiving yards for the Eagles.

The Colts fell to 0-2 on the season and play the 0-2 Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3.
