Via Pro Football Talk:
The news, although it really isn’t news, is that the NFL is reviewing for potential discipline the hit applied by Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney to Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. The news that will be news is what the NFL does about it.
Setting aside questions of “clean” and “dirty,” the reality is this: Clowney lowered his helmet and initiated contact against an opponent with it. That’s a clear violation of the rule that the NFL passed in 2018, applied aggressively in the 2018 preseason, ignored for the most part in the 2018 regular season and postseason, and dusted off for the 2019 season.
The most surprising part of the entire play was that a flag wasn’t thrown.
Clowney hit a quarterback going to the ground from behind with his helmet. It checks a lot of boxes for a flag to have been thrown.
