Coughlin questions flag on Antrel Rolle

Both Tom Coughlin and Antrel Rolle felt referees were wrong to penalize Rolle for unnecessary roughness in the fourth quarter.

Rolle banged helmets with Redskins tight end Fred Davis when Davis was on the ground, untouched, following a seven-yard reception.

Had Davis been stopped where he caught the ball, he would have been short of the first down.

But referees whistled Rolle for the 15-yard unnecessary roughness because he hit Davis helmet to helmet.

The flag gave the Redskins a first down on a drive they'd eventually score on to build a two-touchdown lead.

"I definitely didn't think it was helmet-to-helmet," Rolle said. "I definitely didn't lead with my helmet. I've never led with my helmet. At the end of the day, there's nothing I can do about it - the call was made."
