NFL Fines A Player In The
Bears Vs Patriots Game
The National Football League watches every game they play and looks for any unlawful plays that could result in a fine.
Because not all unlawful behavior is seen by field officials, a fresh set of eyes is needed to ensure no one gets away with something that could hurt their brand.
There was one such play in the Chicago Bears vs. New England Patriots game on Monday night that ought to have resulted in a fine.
Mac Jones, the quarterback for the Patriots, slid and raised his foot to kick Jaquan Brisker, a rookie for the Bears, in the testicles.
It's not the first time he's done something filthy in his brief career, and it's not even the second time he slid with evil lead-leg intent against the Bears.
It appears that Mac Jones is a sleazy guy, but because of his position as a quarterback, the league will overlook this aspect of his character.
The NFL didn't let Mike Pennel off the hook. Because of his illegal blindside block on Patriots center David Andrews, he was fined $6,222.
"I saw. Yeah. The hit was "very wrong," Bears coach Matt Eberflus said. "He shouldn't. I told him then. We don't teach it. It's not taught. It's bad football"
Pennel's illegal hit got him expelled and deserved the fine, but Mac Jones skate around without one is a joke.
