Officiating crew, Chargers' tendencies favor Colts

Posted by's Paul Kuharsky

SAN DIEGO -- Referee Ron Winter and his crew called more penalties than any other crew this season, according to the NBC broadcast of the game.

The San Diego Chargers have been called for more pass interference penalties in the league this season with 13.

Put those two together and you get an advantage for the pass-happy Colts.

They already got a 30-yard pass interference penalty against Quentin Jammer, though the drive fizzled, ending with a punt.

Keep an eye on the frequency of flags and the Chargers defensive backs.
