Patriots Awarded Roughing The Passer Penalty After Colts Accidentally Touch Brady’s Helmet

During the 2nd quarter of Colts-Patriots on Thursday night, the Pats capped off a scoring drive catalyzed by a roughing the passer penalty on Indianapolis LB Najee Goode for touching Tom Brady’s helmet.

Now on any other day this may be a fair penalty for contacting the QB’s head area.

That’s hard to argue considering the Patriots somehow escaped a roughing the passer penalty of their own after landing on Andrew Luck with full bodyweight a few minutes before during the same game.
