NFL rules expert Gene Steratore reacts to PI no-call on Broncos' 2-point attempt

Washington Commanders cornerback Benjamin St-Juste seemingly got away with pass interference in a game-deciding play against the Denver Broncos on Sunday afternoon.
After pulling off an incredible 50-yard Hail Mary pass, the Broncos trailed the Commanders 35-33 with no time left on the clock. After the touchdown, Denver was given an untimed two-point attempt that could have sent the game into overtime.
On the two-point try, Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson threw to wide receiver Courtland Sutton in the end zone but the pass was broken up by St-Juste, who appeared to make contact before the ball arrived.
After the game, former NFL referee and current CBS Sports rules analyst Gene Steratore tweeted that “the contact by the defender significantly impacted the receiver’s ability to make a play on the ball.”
Steratore served as a referee in the NFL from 2003-2018. St-Juste entered the league as a third-round pick out of Minnesota in 2021. The 26-year-old defensive back totaled three tackles and the game-deciding breakup on Sunday.
