Kansas City Chiefs Defensive Line Chris Jones The austerity on the penalty kick prompted an interesting response from former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman on Monday night.
Jones received a penalty for what appeared to be an ordinary blow Las Vegas Raiders Quarterback Derek Carr who led to a fumble and recover. Instead, the referees threw a flag and gave the raiders an extra 15 yards and a new set of touchdowns.
While Arrowhead and social media erupted during the call, Aikman had a few picks for the NFL Competition Committee.
“It’s a lot,” he said at focus points to protect NFL quarterbacks. “I hope the competition committee will look into this in the next set of meetings, you know, take off the dresses,” Aikman said on the ESPN broadcast.
The Pro Football Hall of Famer who won three Super Bowls played for the Cowboys from 1989 to 2000. He is believed to have suffered about seven concussions during his career.
The NFL and NFL reviewed concussion protocols before the start of their Week 5 playoff roster after Miami Dolphins quarterback, Toa Tagovailoa, suffered a terrifying head injury against the Cincinnati Bengals.
New rules came into effect for Tagovailoa Backup Teddy Bridgewater, who was eliminated from Sunday’s game against the New York Jets. Bridgewater passed concussion tests but one observer thought the midfielder may have had ataxia, which has been added to a “banned” list.
Bridgewater was disqualified and Skylar Thompson entered the match.
The referees seem to be keen to protect their midfielders since Tagovailoa’s injury.
