They made the same call in the ATL/ARI game that caused the safety on Matt Ryan. Apparently it was put in to protect the QB.

Hey Metroid, the video of ROmo on the ground holding his helmet is a little much don't you think? Next year...we'll see McNabb holding his head and mama spooning in some Chunky Soup! :-D
