said an official on the field told him the same thing.

I don’t feel like the call on Robert was targeting at all. It’s crazy," Peters said. "I was out there talking to one of the refs that didn’t call it and he was saying that it was perfect form tackling and that it doesn’t get any better than that. He said that they would reverse the call and the next thing you know they came out and said that it was targeting. It really hurt Robert and it’s really getting to him. I feel like that was a bad call. Some of the pass interference calls – sometimes you’re going to have that out there."
