If you thought the Jacksonville Jaguars got the short end of the stick when it came to penalties in Week 1, you weren't alone. The team thought so too and reportedly held an internal meeting with team officials believing that the referees missed at least four pass interference calls committed on receiver Allen Robinson.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, there were 16 missed calls that went against the Jaguars last Sunday, but none more damning than the one on Rashad Greene over the middle on the game's final drive.

"Of the 16 calls that the league recognized as going against the Jaguars, a key one was a missed defensive holding by Packers defensive back Micah Hyde against wide receiver Rashad Greene that would have given Jacksonville a first-and-goal from the Green Bay 9-yard line with under a minute left and a chance to win the game, the sources said. The Jaguars instead failed on the ensuing fourth-and-1 and lost 27-23."
