The Philadelphia Eagles are facing off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football. And fans took exception to the officiating through one half of football after officials missed an obvious false start on Eagles star offensive lineman Lane Johnson.

Johnson is regarded by most fans as one of the best linemen in all of football for the majority of his career, which dates all the way back to 2013.

However, Johnson seemingly had several early starts on a number of plays. One play in particular was very obvious to most at home, but was not called by the officials.

The play in question occurred at the end of the first half, where Johnson clearly jumped way before the ball was snapped. A video from Doug Farrar of USA Today Sports shared on Twitter shows the play in slow motion.

Fans took notice of this play and couldn’t believe that nothing was called considering how blatant the false start was from the Pro Bowl tackle.

The Eagles ended up benefitting slightly from this no-call, completing a two-yard pass on the play. They would go on to convert on a short field goal attempt at the end of the half to extend their lead to 13-3.

It will certainly be interesting to see whether the officials look at Johnson more closely in the second half, especially since fans complained about him starting early on numerous other plays in the first half.
