    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)—Referee Ed Hochuli was at the center of another questionable call Sunday, flagging Julius Peppers for a roughing-the-passer penalty that wiped out Carolina’s interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter against Atlanta.

    After Matt Ryan’s pass was intercepted by Richard Marshall, Hochuli threw a flag and announced Peppers made a helmet-to-helmet hit on Ryan. It erased the touchdown and gave the Falcons a first down on a drive that ended with a punt.

    Replays showed Peppers made contact as Ryan released the ball, and appeared to hit him first with his shoulder.

    Fans booed loudly when the play was shown on the video boards at Bank of America Stadium.

    I saw that play. Definitely a "quick whistle" there. Good thing Atlanta really couldn't execute.

    There is a pattern developing here. If it keeps up, he's going to be seriously downgraded. I see nothing to change my mind about there being an integrity issue involved.
