Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Chris Godwin had an up-and-down performance in the seasonopener against the Cowboys.
The speedy playmaker made several big plays over the course of the game, but also had a drop and fumble down the stretch that could have proven to be the difference if Tampa hadn’t pulled it out.
Late in the game, Chris Godwin made his most important play when Tom Brady found him down the sidelines to set up the go-ahead field goal with less than ten seconds left.
However, many fans and media members thought he got away with an offensive pass interference on the play.
You be the judge.
Should this have been OPI?

When speaking about the play after the game, Chris Godwin said there was, “a little hand-fighting on both parts”.
“I’m grateful I had the opportunity to redeem myself,” Godwin said, via Jori Epstein of USA Today.
Chris Godwin struggled with drops during the Bucs’ Super Bowl run last season, so I’m sure fans were happy to see him come down with the big reception on Thursday night.
