A pair of Ravens penalties that led to Green Bay Packers touchdowns drew the ire of fans on social media Sunday.

Early in the second quarter, Ravens rookie linebacker Odafe Oweh was penalized for a questionable roughing the passer call.

On first-and-10 at the Ravens’ 18-yard line, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw an incomplete pass into the end zone and was lightly pushed by Oweh after letting it loose. Even though it didn’t appear that Oweh pushed Rodgers hard, the three-time NFL Most Valuable Player tumbled to the ground, prompting the referee to throw a flag and Fox broadcaster Troy Aikman to simply say “Wow.”

Green Bay immediately took advantage. After a 7-yard completion, running back A.J. Dillon powered into the end zone for a 2-yard score to tie the game at 7 with 12:53 remaining in the quarter.

Early in the third quarter, Ravens practice-squad call-up Kevon Seymour was flagged for defensive pass interference on a critical third-and-10 from Baltimore’s 21-yard line. Seymour appeared to tug slightly on wide receiver Allen Lazard’s jersey before Lazard dropped a pass that would have resulted in a first down. The penalty gave Green Bay a first-and-goal inside the 10-yard line, and Rodgers connected with running back Aaron Jones for a 9-yard touchdown pass on the next play to give the Packers a 21-14 lead.
