MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Oakland Raiders coach Hue Jackson says he has held his tongue long enough when it comes to NFL officiating.

Jackson ripped the officiating crew on Sunday after the Raiders beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-21 to improve to 6-4 on the season. Jackson says he “truly felt like it was a little unfair” when it came to some of the plays his team was flagged for in the game.

The Raiders were penalized 12 times for 117 yards. Four of those penalties were personal fouls for hits deemed illegal by referee Jerome Boger’s crew.

Jackson says he feels it’s time to stand up for his players. He says he will contact the league office on Monday to discuss some of the calls.
