Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy had a breakout game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, but he may have gotten a big break when he bumped an official during an outburst.
Late in the second quarter, Jeudy was upset the officials did not call pass interference on the defender who was guarding him. He ripped off his helmet and yelled at an official. As he was walking toward the official and the sideline, he appeared to bump into the line judge.

Jeudy explained his frustrations to reporters after the game.
“I was just—on that certain play, I got held,” he said. “I was just frustrated because we didn’t have things going, so I was out there playing with frustration wanting to make a play for my team. I feel like at that point, I was just held and that should’ve been called, but I have to know how to control my anger and just move on from there.”
