The NFL is reviewing Bill Belichick, John Harbaugh and Kyle Shanahan after all three were involved in incidents with replacement referees.

The NFL is reviewing a number of incidents which occurred Sunday between coaches and replacement referees. Among those being reviewed are New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

The reviews come after a Sunday which included a number of mistakes and other incidents. Shanahan drew a penalty after arguing with a referee after the the officials mistakenly called for a 10-second runoff. After changing the ruling, referees misspotted the ball, making a 20-yard penalty into 25 yards.

Belichick and Harbaugh were both involved in the Sunday Night Football game which featured a number of questionable calls. Harbaugh was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct after arguing a illegal contact penalty. Following the game, Belichick attempted to grab the arm of a referee at midfield to get an explanation for a call on the game-winning field goal.
