Chiefs Defender Lets Tom Brady Go To Avoid Roughing The Passer Penalty, Gives Up Touchdown

Officials have been whistle happy when calling roughing the passer penalties this season, especially with the installment of the new rules. The fear of receiving one may now be costing teams games.

With minutes to go and the Chiefs needing a red zone stand, Breeland Speaks had Brady in his grasp for what appeared to be a sack, only to seemingly let Brady go in order to not draw a roughing flag for tackling the quarterback low.

Just last week, Eagles DE Michael Bennet was flagged for the same tackle Speaks would have used to take Brady down the way he had him wrapped up Sunday night.

  1. I do like the manner in which you have framed this situation plus it does give me some fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, because of just what I have witnessed, I simply just trust when the opinions stack on that men and women continue to be on issue and don’t embark upon a tirade of the news of the day. Yet, thank you for this superb piece and while I can not concur with it in totality, I value your viewpoint.

  2. Bears anyone obtained any actual success through HARO? It merely seems that most of the reporters mounted on the organization has been from the US which don’t have much objectives from other areas specifically within South Asia. Brian, can you really major me to any situation studies? Thanks.
